The last three days of Optifast have been the hardest for me. There have been too many things going on around me and I really want to eat proper food again. It was my Dad’s birthday so there was Cake, Pizza and Beer. Attending things like this when you are a food addict and knowing you can’t even have a bite is SO hard. It truly was a very hard few days.
In these three days I have stayed strong and have lost 5.4kgs since Day 1 Pre-Op. Whilst I know this stage before surgery is not about weight-loss but about shrinking the fatty liver it would have been nice if after 13 days that figure was a little higher.
