1 Day In....

I'm over 24 hours into the liquid diet. It's not unbearable...yet. I'm typing this blog entry while my husband and kids eat their dinner. Preparing everyone else a meal is definitely turning out to be the hardest part.

Today I've learned that vanilla protein supplements are probably best made into pudding rather than a shake, using a straw to drink fiber drinks is a must (thanks to the my sister-in-law for that idea!), and sodium filled frozen meals in a bag look and smell 1000x's yummier when you haven't eaten real food in over 24 hours!

I'm not in a bad mood, but I'm definitely beginning to feel the effects of no caffeine and greatly reduced calories. I have a headache, a little on the achy side, very tired, and definitely wanting to eat food.

I'd like to type more about the procedure I'm having and share the info I've gotten from the surgeon, but tonight the headache is winning. I'll try to get back on later (after my soup and 3rd shake) to post some more information.

Until next time...Hugs, Prayers, & Hungry!

  1. I'm no doctor and I've never been on a liquid diet, but I would bet the first 24-48 are going to be the toughest. Hang in there and keep your eye on the prize!
