Figureing out the Pre-Op diet
Aug 12, 2011Well 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.....
