    Default How much weight did you lose on the pre-op liquid diet?

    I'm starting the second week of my pre-op liquid diet. I'm just wondering how much weight you lost during this period. I have 150 lbs. to lose and I really thought I'd drop about 15 lbs. at the end of the 2 weeks. I don't think that will happen. So far, I've lost 6 lbs. Is that the average?

    Also, did you keep this pre-op weight off after surgery?

    Thanks.

    Debbie

    Hey Debbie...my name is Misty and I am halfway through my first week of pre-op liquids. I have lost almost nine pounds so far....with only 116 pounds left to go!!! If I say it quick it doesn't sound like so much, right?

    My surgery is scheduled for this Friday.

    Good luck!

    I think everyone will varey, it will even vary according to wether you are a pear shape or an apple ( abdominal fat tends to budge a bt qucker for most than fat around the thighs/butt)
    Try not to get discouraged as the process is not really meant to give you a huge weightloss, its designed to shrink your liver and improve your liver function tests preop to make the surgery safer and easier- the weightloss is a bonus really. the other thing to remember is that one pound of body fat is worth about 3200 calories- to drop 15 pounds of fat ( not body flud as often happens with rapid wt loss) you would need to have restrcted your calorie intake by 15 x 3200 or 48,000 calories over that period. Unless you had a really high calorie intake usually of 4000 or more, its not likely.

    I was supposed to lose 10% of my body weight by surgery date. That was 37 pounds. By the time I went in to start my pre op diet I was down 15 pounds already.( I had a long insurance wait.) So in three weeks on the post op diet I dropped 22 pounds to weigh in and dr.s and on surgery day I was down 5 more pounds below that so a total of 27 pounds on the three week post op diet. My doctor was very happy. My weight was up 5 pounds post op but today on day 4 post op it was back down to my preop weight. Boy did that make me happy. Good luck and stick with it. You'll make it to the required weight before surgery.

    Hi Misty,
    I'm so new on this that your my first to send a message to. You just got banded and that is awesome. My date is April 2nd. I wasn't given a pre-op diet to follow. Just wondering if you have any lessons to pass along?

    I lost about nine pounds on the preop diet (3 weeks). Then I gained five in the hospital but immediately lost it within 2 days of no IV's. Since then I have dropped another 8 pounds. This is during the first week post-op of clear liquids.
