Ladies, do you ever feel like you have to pee all the time? Think the last month or two of a pregnancy where you sit down and almost instantly have to get up to go back to the bathroom. Well, the countdown is on! My big surgery is less than two weeks away and I am on my liquid diet. I pee all the time…
Here is an example of my day:
8:00 AM – protein shake
9:30 AM – sugar free Jell-O with 8 ounces of water
10:30 AM – protein shake
noon – 16 ounces of water
1:00 PM – protein shake
2:30 PM – cup of low sodium broth and 8 ounces of water
3:30 PM – protein shake
5:00 PM – 16 ounces of water
6:30 PM – protein shake
8:00 PM – cup of low sodium broth and 16 ounces of water
That is around my busy schedule of working out at 8:30 AM and going to bed at 9:00 PM.
120 ounces of liquid a day – now you know why I pee all the time!
This is to help get my stomach ready for the post surgery diet of liquids, then soft foods, then pureed foods…whoever said this was the “easy way” to loose weight had no idea what they were talking about!
I have a few more appointments this week; with my surgeon, blood draws, and a 2-hour class to cover what to expect when I go under the knife on March first. It’s just around the corner!
I would love to share more this week, but I think I should buy some short term stock in Angel Soft toilet paper…
