Been back on the pre-op diet wagon since the second. In the last couple of days, I have noticed the energy waning. It does help immensely not being at work. Im still gyming it - hope to lose at least a total of 20kilos by op time. Still waiting to hear when that will be, hoping I will find out next week sometime.
So no carbs or any of the crap I ate over the festive period. Good time for detoxing!
Trying the lemon mousse opti fast as something different. Its ok - kind of like a cheesecake flavouring. Still prefer the coffee and strawberry shakes and the bars though. Also to note - in future be more organised and buy them from the clinic. There is serious inflation when buying it from the chemist!
Holidays are full of events and social time - it does make the eating thing a bit harder. Coffee's are fine - a trim mocha is fine as long as I give away the marshmellows/chocolate fish. Today I felt victorious at Maranui Cafe in Lyall Bay when after looking in the food cabinet and menu - there were no meals without carbs. Even the cabinet salads were potato or pasta based. However, I noticed a green salad, mushrooms and spinach on the side order menu. So I combined them for my lunch - success!!!!
Success!! Green salad had sunflower seeds on it to - nice touch!

On the weight loss, I have gained a little during Christmas. I decided to delay weighing myself for at least a week so hopefully will see a good loss. Hopefully, next week some energy will return :)
