Maybe we will. 

I'm doing ok. I think I will be under 90kgs by surgery date, but I hope to never have to do opti fast again. It makes me gag. 

I hope we do run into each other :).

Hi there!

I'm in on Sat!  Might see you there!  Optifast has been tough.  I'm nervous but looking forward to it.  Such a weird mix of dread and optimism. I'm determined though.

How are you going?

Hi Liz,

I am also with Doctor Braun. My surgery is on Friday at the Holy Spirit Northside. 

I'm sick of the opti fast. I never want to do it again that's for sure.

Hi all,

I've been hovering around this forum for a couple of weeks and decided it was time to connect.  I am 6 days away from my sleeve op.  I have had to do a lot of mental work to be able to accept that this is my best and only option for long term health.  Currently I have no health issues related to my weight, but I know that won't always be the case.  So I figure while I am healthy, now is the best time to take a massive step towards protecting my future health and longevity.

I must admit there have been a couple of times that I have nearly talked myself out of it, but I always came back to the same place, there is no other way.  Once I started the pre-op Optifast diet there was no more talk of backing out...I never want to restart this process.  It has been tolerable, now at day nine I am not nearly as hungry as I was on say day 5.  

I am still nervous, but I think that's normal.

I would love to hear from anyone who is doing this really.  In particular anyone who used Dr. Braun in Brisbane I'd love to compare notes with.

Cheers

Liz
