I have no life :(

I didn't even realize it had been close to a month since I had posted on here! I've been so busy with school that I don't even remember to sleep :) Well if you see by my ticker I have lost 12 lbs in 3 weeks! It has not been easy! This protein diet my doctor has me on is KILLER! I'm actually not as hungry as I was before, but it is the worst between lunch and dinner! It's like my tummy knows that it is going to be fed real food at 6 and it wants it NOW! I haven't been great with the diet either I might have lost an extra 3 or 4 lbs if I had been. I still eat cheese and still have dressings on my salads which are not recommended, but hey either than that I think I'm doing pretty good! Did your doctors have you on a protein diet 4 - 6 weeks before surgery? On all of the blogs that I read I haven't come across somebody who has...

My doctor has let me know I have my pre op appointment on June 18th and I was told the surgery is within 2 weeks of that appointment so let's cross our fingers I'll be celebrating 4th of July with my band. I'm assuming and hoping by the surgery date I'll be down another 10-15 lbs I'm trying to work to getting as low on the scale as possible so when I have to deal with post op and bandster "hell" I don't gain too much!

Now on too the boring stuff. I'm 3 weeks into my first graduate class and boy is it demanding! I was not prepared for the amount of reading I have to do for class... Just this week I had to read close too 300 pages, plus write a discussion question, take a test for class online and finally write a 5-7 page paper before tuesday next week! Yup, no memorial weekend for me :( I hope you guys have a better weekend than me :) be safe!


  1. I was never on a protein diet. I had to go on clear liquids for 5 days pre op. I was just banded this past Monday. Sorry about your school work load.

  2. I've heard about the liquid diet which i also have to do pre surgery. My doctor says they are trying to shrink my liver to the smallest as possible make the surgery and the recovery much easier. I HOPE SO!

  3. 12lbs is awesome!! The liquid diet sucked. But you definately get through it and you just keep reminding yourself of why you're doing it.

    Can you have any broth? The boullion (sp?) cubes held me over in times of crisis!!

  4. I don't have to do the liquid diet, yet its just a protein diet so I can still eat solids...for dinner :(
