10 days to go broken pre op,
I've been battling all day on this liquid diet, and I've given in and eaten some chocolate ..... Didn't even enjoy it raked with guilt right now *** oh well I guess tomorrow s another day . I hope they don't turn me away on the 25th!!! I'll die if they did .... They won't will they?

Tomorrow is one less day you have to shrink your liver. You really must try your hardest to stick to it. Imagine waking up and finding out that they were unable to operate, as your liver was still too big?

I don't mean to sound harsh, but if you can't stick to something for 10 days, how are you going to stick to all of the changes for life post op?

You're having yours 3 days before me! I'm end of day 5 now and only struggled with days 1 and 2 but only with mild tummy grumbles. I daren't even look at any type of food just for the reason that Paula mentioned, I can't think of anything worse than going through everything we have to be turned away!!! Stick to the diet like glue, you won't regret it :) xx

Freeze the yogurt it takes longer to eat and might help x
Thankyou, Wendy. Not doing too bad today I'm a lot more positive , stronger than previously. I suppose it was some of the stern responses I recieved .... And needed ! Plus time is drawing closer and it would be silly to jeopardize such a golden opportunity it get my life back once and for all... So a heartfelt Thankyou to you all your such amazing people

Go dickiewickie you can do it... only a few more days to go. The pre-op was tough but it is so worth it in the end.

Are you on the 4 yog, 4 soup with portion of milk? If so I used my milk to make an iced coffee. I put loads of ice in a blender with very strong coffee, sweetener, and my milk allowance and it made more than a pint, which I sipped slowly and was very filling.. I could also have diet jelly which was a good filler too.

Good luck...

It is difficult.. a lot of us had to do it..
It is the worst part of the journey but it is so worth it..

Some people do wake up to be told we opened you up and the liver had not shrunk enough..you have to do it..no matter how nice I want to be to you to help you..the fact is it is essential to your well being

You can do it..
I did so anyone can..

Good Luck..and see you on the losers bench really soon

Oh... to inspire you just a little I just posted some before and after pics today on my diary and I am only 3 months post Op..

here you go hope this helps a little..

I am only at the start of my journey and I can see a difference already :)

Fit and fantastic!
Dickie. What Paula and Val have said is so true. You really must engage with the LSD. It is about preparing your body for the surgery not about dieting. It does however prepare your head for life post-op when you really will have to let your sleeve dictate what, how and when you eat. There will be no negotiation. I had my bypass at St A's in July (it is a super hospital and the staff are fantastic!). I did four weeks on four WW soups, four ML yogs and 500ml of semi. I stuck to it like glue, it was hard but not nearly as hard as the first couple of months post op. I have lost 6 stone in as many months - real terms that is size 24 to 14.

Good luck. Keep going. You are doing great xx
