Liquid Diet on Day 2

Posted by on 29 December 2011

I have to say that this is probably one of the hardest things that I’ve ever done!!  I know that it’s going to be worth it in the end.  I just have to get past this hardest part.  I can say for certain that I don’t like liquid diets and I really dislike broth!!

I think that if I ever had to do this again, I’d wean myself off of food.  I had a good Christmas and didn’t even fully enjoy the leftovers when I had to start this on Wednesday.  So, knowing what I know now, I’d make my meals smaller and smaller and start to supplement food with liquid so the adjustment isn’t so hard.  I mean you don’t have to be an “eater” for this to be a rough change.  Liquid 24 hours a day and nothing but sucks!!

I can have yogurt, cottage cheese, 1 cup of milk, sugar-free drinks (like Kool-Aid, Crystal Light, and similar) , Jell-o, Popsicles, Fudgesicles, and things like that.  Oh yes, and lots of broth….any flavor!!  There’s also a notation that I can have one “small salad” for dinner each night.  That’s a small lettuce salad with maybe some shaved carrots and something like light Italian dressing.  I’d prefer ranch or Catalina or something like that, but I can deal with it. 

So that’s where things stand 2 days into this.  I forgot to weigh myself and kiddo is going to take a picture tomorrow.  I really want to track my progress, but I refuse to become obsessed about it.  I just will check often enough that I know where I’m at and approximately how much is to go.  I do hope that I can show that surgeon up and lose some weight before my actual surgery.  He doesn’t think that I can or will!!

I’ll keep you posted, as it won’t be long now!!
