I'm doing only Optifast shakes. I'm supposed to get in 5 a day, but I never have been able to choke them all down. Yesterday I got in 4. I've removed sugar from my diet for the past two weeks and no more diet sodas or bubbly water. I've stayed low carb for the most part. I didn't think I would have a big problem going all liquid for the pre op. Yet, I still got a headache last night. My poor body...what the heck have I been doing to it over the past few years?

I'm not extremely tired all the time like I used to be and I have a lot of confidence in myself now, I'm trying new things because I'm trying to enjoy my new lifestyle.
