5 days down (almost)...

OK, this pre-op diet ain't no joke! Ugh. I'm not struggling horribly, but it isn't exactly a walk in the park either.

Yesterday was DD's 2nd birthday party, and I'm proud to say I made it through the entire thing without so much as a bite entering my mouth. It was hard, especially because I ended up not eating for 8+ hours, but I stuck with it. I want to be able to say I stuck to the pre-op diet 100% without cheating. It's just a personal battle I want to win.

I have realized in the five short days I've been doing this that I do eat partially out of emotion, boredom, and habit. I always knew I did, but this confirmed it for me. It's been a very eye-opening experience, and I fully intend to use these two weeks to my advantage after surgery.

9 days to go...and lots of learning left to do!


  1. Good luck and keep up the good work - it is SO WORTH IT in the end! Seriously!

  2. Congrats to you on surviving the Bday party! That would be a tough one for me, I love bday cake. Keep up the good work, it will all be worth it in the end!

  3. Great job on dealing with the Birthday Party. I'm on day 3 of my liquid diet and it hasn't been too bad. You are doing great! How much weight have you lost?

  4. Thanks, everyone!

    I'm waiting until Wed to weigh myself, even though I'm so anxious to do it NOW. I can already tell I'm way less bloated in my ankles, legs, and belly.
