4 Days and Counting
Hey Everyone I just wanted to post a update! I am in the 2nd week of my pre-op diet, and this week was all liquids. When I say I AM SO HUNGRY! OMG! I am trying to keep it together...but I need food! LOL I am not saying I need something unhealthy either just some type of food. All I can do is pray, and keep in mind why I am doing this! Surgery is early Monday morning,super excited, but nervous at the same time!

I understand I'm in my 2 week liquid diet too but for some reason I'm not very hungry. What type of protein drinks are u using? I'm using Muscle Milk 4 times per day & it keeps me full. My surgery is next Thursday so I gotta hang in there too!!! Best wishes
Try a few tricks to fool your mind into thinking that you're eating. Try some sugar free popsicles or freeze a protein shake into popsicles. Anything like that so that you're chewing and your brain is fooled.

I'm FOUR days out, too! I've been too busy lately to think about it much... hard to believe it's almost time! I'm on liquids all day but Dr Garcia allows a light low-carb dinner, so I've been able to survive. I go onto clear liquids this weekend, then fly Monday am and surgery Monday pm. Weird ~ a week from today I'll already be home! Wish me luck & blessings!
And luck & blessings to you, jenamir21!
Good luck with surgery everyone! I just had my vsg this monday the 7th. It was not as bad as I expected. I didn't have much pain, just nausea. Still not as bad as I expected, hubby agrees. I can tell everyday that I am getting better. Its kind of nice at this point to be at home alone and have some me time. I hope you all have a smooth recovery as well :)
