My mother went through this in November of 2011. Her band was placed in December of 2011. Since then, she has lost almost 60 pounds! I am going to be relying on her to get me through this liquid diet phase. I am thankful to have someone to support me.
I know that the first few days will be difficult. I will be working some of those days in the ER. Someone is always having a birthday or a doctor is bringing donuts. I will have to really keep control of myself. I am serious about losing weight and I want to do whatever is necessary to accomplish my goal.
I have heard that some people lose up to 15 pounds while on the 2 week liquid diet. I think my mom did. That would be nice to have a 15 pound head start on the band.
