I gave in...

And I'm actually glad I did!

As most of you know, I decided to take a break from my pre-op diet because I started a week early.

Well the other day mum and I went to Costco and she bought a pack of bagles. I haven't had one in ages and I was craving it. So I had one this morning. And I felt stuffed! I regret having one but then I know that if I didn't now then my band might not even let me eat them after surgery.

It's 1.30 and I just had lunch. I was just going to have a shake but then mum reminded me that once I start pre-op tomorrow I won't be able to eat any solids until post-op. I'm not necessarily craving junk, I just wanted something fresh. I was actually craving some fresh ricotta cheese. So I had 2 rice crackers with ricotta, tomato and some shaved ham. It was so good! But I am so full and I doubt I could eat anything until dinner! It's amazing how these last few days on optifast has already decreased my appetite! Last week I probably would have had at least 4 crackers and I probably still wouldn't be full!!

I'm really excited now to get the band, because I know that I will feel satisfied!

You are going to do wonderful... I lost like 15 pounds in 12 days on Optifast 800 and I wasn't hungry, you're right it does decrease your appetite.Good Luck on your pre-op diet... It gets your liver and stomach in great shape for surgery and decrease the chance for complications too... Pretty nice bonus, huh? ^Maria^-Blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..."
