2 weeks from today!

I am on day 2 of my pre-operation diet.
Things are going pretty good, I am getting headaches from no caffeine, but other than that plugging along ok. I don't really like the taste of the shake stuff I tastes chalky..but I am thinking they probably all taste that way. I am curious, what kinds did you guys use? What is the name brand? and flavor? I plan on taking some before pictures tonight, and hopefully I can get them posted soon. I also want to take my measurements, well I don't really "want" to, but know that I should. LOL. Measuring yourself can be a humbling experience.
I can't believe 2 weeks from today is my surgery date. I have waited all summer long for this day to arrive, and now it's coming so quickly! I am ready tho!


  1. Wow, that went quick. How exciting... by the time I come back from my trip to Tassie, you will be banded.. so from me to you a premature.. welcome to bandland!!!!!!!!!
    I don't think my shake brand will be much use. Not sure you use it over there in the USA but I was on Optifast - tasted disgusting at first but I learned to doctor it to my taste (try dissolving the coffee in your shake.. might help with the taste and will stop the headaches!! It's what I did. Even if it's decaf.)

  2. I did slim fast both can (creamy milk chocolate) and powder (chocolate royale). I highly recommend the powder. I mixed it with skim milk and ice and it was yummy. Well at least for the first 8 days and then i was over it, but I got through it! Yeah Susie, you're almost there!!

  3. My doc recommended shake:
    2 cups 1% milk
    1/2 Cup powdered milk
    Sugar free Nestles Quick to taste

    My hubby makes mine in the blender. Makes it smoother. Drink one in the morning and on in the evening and I get at least 60 gms of protein. It's actually not too bad.

    Hope this helps.
