Day 1 of pre-op diet!

Have my second follower, thanks so much for your comment Linda, makes me feel i'm not alone!

I start my 5 day pre-op diet today, I get to have 4 shakes, 2 soups and 5 portions of fruit and veg a day, there is no mention of milk, i'm a tea addict and there is no way I can cut it out completely so will try and limit myself to 2 cups per day, luckily my lovely sister sent me a Emma Bridgewater pint mug for my birthday last week!

I went out for my "last supper" last night, I was with my friend Sarah who knows about my plans. She struggles with her weight and is very supportive but doesn't feel that she could have a band, her husband, who is also a friend, doesn't know about it, she feels that he wouldn't approve. I don't really care one way or another but he seems to have twigged that there was a reason for us going out last night and is convinced that my marriage is breaking up!


  1. Linda..i do not think it will be your last supper..... The restriction will take ( normally takes ) some time to come into play...

    Last night I was out and had an indian with friends...Tandori lamb chops , Naan, Dhaal...the lot...However , I was only able to eat about half of what I normally would have.. and Im banded 6 weeks nearly.....You will still be able to eat a little of what you like after the op and swelling goes down ;-)..and this is good..

  2. Thanks Andrew, it just seems like a long time away.
    Its 11.23 am here and you have no idea how much I want to eat dhaal!
