Would you like your torture Shaken or Stirred?

WARNING: I will complain, I will bitch, I hold nothing back.  I am a food addict.  This is withdraw.  By Tuesday I should be back to my normal happy self but in the meantime...... deal with it!

Day  2 of my liquid diet and I have to disagree with who ever came up with this idea.  It's not horrible as in there's no way I can do it.  It is horrible in the way that I'd rather have my teeth pulled with no Novocaine and rusty dental equipment.  

Thank Goodness for my mother who happened to have sugar free syrups to make this a little more interesting.  So far I've been able to turn my banana shakes into 'Banana Fosters', my chocolate shakes into 'Chocolate Raspberry Truffles', and my vanilla shakes into 'Irish Cream Heaven'.  Ohh don't forget my lavish chicken broth that I have seasoned with every type of salt and pepper concoction I can come up with. This coupled with long naps to combat the lack of energy I'm feeling and this short term liquid diet is totally livable.  Let's just hope my sunny disposition is just as cheery this time next week.

To combat the blues and the lack of explosions on my taste buds I have made my lemon water a staple.  It's half pure lemon juice, half water poured over as many ice cubes as I can fit in a 16oz tumbler.  I like my lemon water.  No, let me rephrase that, I LOVE my lemon water!  It's such a nice pick me up.

To start my official countdown I've added a ticker tot he top of my blog.  Now you can count down with my too!

Now that wasn't too bad, was it?  I complained and maybe even went a little over board but nothing my favorite people couldn't handle.


  1. Did you ask about the lack of energy? Is that normal?

  2. It can be normal because although I am getting the nutrients I need I'm not over filling on them as I normally would. Part of the lack of energy comes from me being just plain miserable. It's the Diva in me. :)

  3. My surgeon wants me to do this during my 90 day pre-opp diet! 7 days of practically starving yourself, but some regular food, then he wants me to do 10 days liquid and just alternate. HELL NO!

    I may be a pain in the butt about it, but I know that I just can't do that yet. I'm fine with having to do the liquid only for the 10 days before surgery. You have your eye on the prize, but not for the 90 day diet. No.

    Can't wait till you have surgery and you can share your experience.

  4. Thank you for the encouragement! It really does help.

    I won't lie this part really does suck but we have to look at the bigger picture. I find whinning on the OH forums really does help too.
