a funeral...of sorts

This morning I really enjoyed drinking my last cup of coffee....well at least for several weeks it is. I start my 2 week pre-op diet tomorrow.
I also will be drinking my last diet pepsi today....and that is what I will miss the most. I can't believe I will never again be able to drink pop...unless I have the band removed after losing weight. It will be really hard to give up my diet pepsi, it is my favorite drink of all time.
So even though I am excited & pumped for my surgery...I am also sad to be saying goodbye to my pop. LOL.

I start my diet tomorrow. I went shopping last night and got my chewable vitamins, my calcium chewables, my whey protein drink stuff, a blender and my groceries. I get a shake & fruit for breakfast, a shake and salad for lunch, a shake for a snack, and a small healthy supper. How much weight did you guys lose on your pre-op diet? Just curious....


  1. Susie!! You're getting so close! First off, I was a HUGE Diet Dr. Pepper fan, even wrote a poem to DDP on my blog. My fellow bandsters told me I wouldn't miss it and I didn't believe a word they said. Well, it's been a month and I don't really miss it to be honest! You'll do great!

  2. Hey Jenny,
    You sound ALL organised and I think that's half the battle. If we know everything is taken care of food wise for after the op.. we can just sail right into it when we arrive home.
    I did my pre-op diet of optifast (a brand here in Oz) and I also, like you, dreaded missing my coffee ... so I would dissolve it and pop that into my choc shake lol Didn't want to totally shock my body.
    I lost 8 kilos in almost three weeks of being on mine.. but I did start a little early to get into the swing of things. If you stick with it, you should lose some nice quick kilos to kick start you!
