***My sleeve gastrectomy surgery date is 2/28/2017***
I honestly didn’t eat very much today because the protein shakes I bought made my stomach queasy all day, even when I had some egg drop soup (allowed by my surgeon). I was so tempted to eat all day today. I had no idea how addicted to food I truly was: all I thought about today was food and I am sooo hungry, but not ravenous or hangry. Under my 2 week pre-op liquid diet I am allowed to have fresh fruit, crackers and steamed vegetables for the fist 3 days and then all liquids after day 3.
I’ve never consumed any type of protein supplement, and the shakes I bought have 30g of protein per container. I started the surgery approval process in June 2016. My consultation weight was 350 lbs. My highest recorded weight was 340 lbs. I’ve lost 5 pant sizes, going from 350 lbs to 306 lbs…and by the end of this liquid diet, I will be under 300 lbs for the first time since my mid-2o’s. Won’t be returning to that person ever again in my life.
