Newbie here. Due for surgery in less than a week. Some nerves, but overall excited. I've been doing my pre-op diet for 8 days now, and ive lost 9lbs which is great news. Im surprised ive managed to stick to it religiously as usually around day 5 i waver. I feel as if i have to do this now. I cant go on all my life yoyo dieting and being limited by my weight and low self esteem!
