Have you started a preop diet yet? I’m day 4 of opti and struggling for the first time today. I don’t think I’ve been drinking enough water so am craving salt!! I’m not finding the shakes too bad at all yet, I just need salt! Might try a cup of miso and see how I go. 

Its getting real now you guys!!

I’m 9 days into the Opti, only 6 days left until the surgery. Day 2 was my worst on opti, I had the biggest headache that I could not shake. I felt nauseous for the following few days, but I’ve come out the other side. The only think I miss now is meat! 

I bought myself a 1 Litre water bottle to help record my water intake. I found it I had 2-3 litres I felt better each day. 

 

It is getting real!

I might have to do the same with the water bottle. I’m usually really good with drinking water but I think the fluids from the shakes as wel as it being winter means I’ve not felt as thirsty. I had a meal of stir fry veggies tonight and they were supper yummy. I put garlic salt in it to overcome my salt craving lol. 

 

How exciting - you are so close!!

The cooler weather does make drinking water harder, you think you don’t need as much! 

I am so terrified. I’ve been going back and reading everyone’s experiences post-op seeing if I can gain an understanding of what it will be like! 

Your stir fry sounds delicious! I’ve been lazy the last few days and have just had steamed veggies. Should probably get more creative.

Good luck June-ers!

I was done on 29 May. I've been so happy with it all. I'm just still struggling to regain energy, but that is to be expected.

Rest when you can after for as long as you can.

The liquid phase is a little tough going but I'm keeping the big picture in mind.

NO REGRETS! All the best. :)

@Srahb25 thanks for asking. Optifast is going really well. Down 2.9kg this week. Have stuck to it like nobody’s business because I know if I deviate for one thing it’s all over. I was avoiding having a shake for breakfast because I never used to be hungry in the morning but now I am. The shake fills me up til lunchtime! So pretty chuffed. 

Not too long for you now - how exciting!!!

Well done @Tuesdaysprincess I have been the same with not deviating. My brother and my boyfriend ate chicken sandwiches in front of me yesterday, but I stayed strong! 

The shakes are surprisingly filling! I’ve become less and less hungry the longer I’ve been on them! 

1 more day, this time tomorrow I’ll be registered at the hospital and awaiting surgery. I’m 3rd cab off the rank! 

Thanks for the luck @JoG, I am so afraid, I have never even had a stitch so the surgery is terrifying me!

Thanks @zaruse!

today is the day. I’ve been awake for hours. I’m so scared! I have no idea what to expect and have nothing to compare it to!

I made chicken broth yesterday! So I’m prepare for when I come out of hospital. 

Lost a total of 8.8 on the optifast!

@Srahb25 I hope all went well yesterday! Can’t wait to hear how you are going. 

I had a gastroscopy yesterday, results were absolutely fine so that’s a big relief. 

Optifast is going really well for me - 6.6kg down in 10 days so I’m super stoked about that. I’m off to Melbourne for the weekend so plan on having my shakes for breakfast and lunch but then eating a keto dinner (ie no carbs, veggie and protein based with some healthy fats). I might have one or two drinks because I’ve planned this for ages but I am also super aware of what to put in my body. 

Only 11 days to go for me!!

Thanks @Tuesdaysprincess! I’m home and doing very well for someone who was so terrified before hand!

no pain as such, only discomfort. And I can’t seem to find a comfortable position to be in now I’m home. My lounge is too low and deep same with my arm chair. 

Well dones in the 6.6kg! Killing it!! Don’t over do it too much in Melbourne! You want to be ready to smash your surgery!

Oh well done @Srahb25 glad to hear that you're home and doing well. I hadn't even thought about where I was going to position myself when I came home ... might be worthwhile looking at that!

Definitely don't plan to overdo it in Melbourne - last time we were there we were so busy that we barely even had time to eat so I'm pretty sure it will be the same this time around. I definitely do not want to undo all of this hard work!

Keep resting and keep me updated as to how you're going!!

Hi All,

How's everyone going? How goes the Optifast week? @Tuesdaysprincessare you the next June Sleever?

I am feeling better and better everyday! Today I got my morning walk from 8 minutes to 20 minutes without feel fatigued! I intend on doing another 20 minute one this afternoon.

I tried making some soups in the book I bought, they were not very good at all. Total waste of an evening cooking!

My fitbit also told me I slept for 10.5 hours last night, I think it was the first real nights sleep I have had since being in hospital. I have taken no pain medication today and feel fine!

I weigh myself on Saturdays, will be interesting to see how I go tomorrow, I have read that a lot of people have put on weight in the week after surgery!

I am getting just under 1.5 litres of liquid in and that has grown from 600 mls. Each day is easier and easier to consume liquid! I still havent tried straight water...I am nervous about that!

I hope everyone is plodding along nicely!

Glad to hear you are going well @Srahb25 - such great news!! Keep us updated!

 

my surgery has been moved forward again so I’m going in on 29th now. I think my head is starting to get the best of me - I’m feeling very alone in this journey and stuff is going down at my place of work (they know I’m having a medical procedure done but they don’t know what it is) and they are not very supportive which has actually surprised me and I feel quite let down by the people I work with. I didn’t have as great a weekend in Melbourne as I thought so I’m feeling pretty down and anxious today. This is a lonely path we tred and I’m worried that I have not made the right choice. All kinds of freaking out happening and I just wish there was a way to get past all of this crap in my head, you know? So stupid. Anyway. 

Onwards and upwards. Three days of work left and then four weeks off. I can do it.

Hi @Tuesdaysprincess  sorry to hear things have been getting ahead of you. 

One thing a mate said that really resonated with me: this surgery is more than just a weight loss tool. It’s about taking control over something that has likely been an issue for years.  

Don’t worry about the unsupportive work ‘friends’. They might be cranky you haven’t told them, but that is their issue, not yours. 

You’ve already made the decision, so the hardest part is done!  Chin up. Only a couple of sleeps now, and you get to meet the new you!

How are we all going? I’m one week post op today. Took my dressings off and they seemed to have healed reasonably well but put a couple of steri-strips back on for some small less-healed areas. 

Slowly going mad on the liquid diet - my crown for some texture! But am down 3.9kg this week, total of 11.1kg since pre-op so feeling good about that!
