5th day: Liquid Diet

Sorry I haven't updated in a few days...I started my liquid shake diet on Saturday. This consists of 5 HMR shakes and clear liquids. It's been pretty rough, but I think I am getting the hang of it. I haven't had starving hunger pains, just mostly head hunger and thinking "oh it's noon, lunch time!" I have been more tired, and falling asleep earlier and also a little lightheaded but nothing that has interfered with my day to day activities. I have found that the only way I can enjoy the shakes is by using my Magic Bullet mixer. This has been a pain, because I have had to lug it to and from work each day haha. Who carries a blender in their purse?? O wait, I do!!

Saturday I got to meet a friend for the first time, Breanne. Breanne is someone who I met on she went to the same hospital and had the same surgeon as me. She has been such an inspiration to me, and I don't know if I would have gotten this far without her help. She has answered all my silly questions from "hey do you think I can wear a bra afterwards" to "can you feel your port" Questions that I needed answers to, but didn't want to call the hospital and ask of course lol. You can check her blog out at

Other exciting news is, I bought a bike on Saturday! I love it, its sooo pretty! I went for my first bike ride last night, and it was fun! I felt like everyone was staring at me, I don't know if it was my hot pink helmet or the fact that I haven't ridden a bike in 10 years so I looked like a 5 year old.

Only 9 more days, wahooo single digits!


  1. lol Good post....and only 9 days? Far out! How exciting.

  2. Liquids are killer, I only did 3 1/2 days and then got sick. I start up again next Saturday before my Aug 27 banding. Keep up the good work, and Yeah for a bike!
