Figureing out the Pre-Op diet

Aug 12, 2011

Well I am into day 6 of my pre-op diet.  I have lost 9 lbs so far.  I ended up figuring out that I need to drink 5 slim fast shakes a day with two cans of soup or whatever to reach my 1200 calories a day.  I have been exercising every day.  Yesterday i rode my bike to work which is 7.8 miles total.  I have been riding it in the morning for 3 miles, but bumped it up.  I am going to try to ride it to work every other day as long as the weather is nice.  I am getting to work quicker.  It only took 30 minutes for the 4 miles, which is pretty fast for me.

I still feel low energy, but know that I am doing well .  This is the weight I was at the Doctors office, Dr. Whites, so I will now not be embarrassed that I had done the last supper thing.  That was SO stupid.  I have spend a week of this diet because I did that.  I am trying to follow the rules.

All in all, doing much better.

My daughter leaves on Tuesday to go to KC and spend a night at a hotel.  She will be shopping etc and then go to the Katy Perry concert.  She will be 18.  She goes to college on the 18Th.  I am sad about it.  :(  I know this is great for her so am trying not to talk about how I feel as this is a very exciting time for her.  Glad I am on the diet right now.  I am just beginning to see how my emotions are tied into eating.....
