Hi . Im booked for my sleeve 11th march i start opti tommorrow morning

For FOUR WEEKS .. Im dreading it but know it has to be done

The only thing i can say is these are the things i feel are important to keep in

Mind while on opti

.. This will shrink my liver to make surgury easier hence less chance of complications

.. This is the start of getting myself off bad food

.. This will retrain my brain as to how i feel about food & why

.. This is the start of my weight loss :)

.. This will start the journey i have waited for & didnt have the strength to do ..

Dont get me wrong im dreading it i know its going to suck bigtime

But if i do it properly i will benifit but give me strength as i will be a complaining

Angry cow im sure !!!

Good luck with everything

hey dragonflyblue I had to do 4 weeks opt. ur mindset changes when u realise it's to help ur liver during surgery. I did 2 shakes over day no cheating and lost 5kg which I was chuffed about. the time will fly by.....just think its a step to a healthier you. good luck.

add so splenda or something similar to the shakes it doesnt add anything (maybe 1 or 2 cal) but iut gives that sweetnes you will be craving.

 

my other tip is push thought the first 4 day - after that you will just drink and go MEH tastes fine - not great but not too bad.
