After struggling with my weight for the last year (after loosing 65 lbs since my "diet" and almost 100 lbs from just clean eating) I decided to go for RNY. I met with my doctor just before Chistmas, and he wanted me to lose another 5-10 lbs before surgery. I assume this is a commitment test, since I've already got my liver down to a more normal size. Thing is, I hadn't been able to budge in months.

The upshot of all this is that I decided to do the slimfast diet using Lean Cuisine frozens for dinner to try to get a rapid loss over the next couple weeks

But it's not turning out that way.

First off, I hate the idea of putting all the garbage in my body. I prefer to eat cleaner foods, but now am compromising that for what I'd hoped would be a quick loss. The Slimfast makes me ill, the Lean Cuisine has about 24%RDA sodium in each meal, and I haven't lost a pound in the last week.

If I could afford to replace this month's food I would. This was probably the stupidest and most ill advised thing I've done.
