Sitting on the losers bench!

Ok, I am finally at home and feel less then perfect as to be expected. I am eating a lot of sugar free custard and chicken broth. I am struggling with the water because it hurts not because i don't like water. Pain after surgery has averaged between 8/10 -3/10 on a pain scale. I am walking and getting better every day. I don't have a scale so i don't know what my weight is right now. i will see Dr. Todder on Oct 04 for my 2 week follow up, i will update my weight then and focus on healing now.
Two days untill surgery!!

I will start with my stats for my weight loss on liquid diet so far. My starting weight was 338 and This morning I weighed in at 327, so that's a loss of 11 lbs in one week and five days on the liquid diet. I wanted to lose 20 lbs on the liquid diet, I will be close but I don't think i will see 20lbs. The scale i am weighting my self on at work weighs me two pounds heavier then Dr. Todders scale. If I make it to 20lbs loss I will have officially lost 10% of my body weight since the start of this journey. My hunger has subsided and I am able to make it threw the day with out starving! On average I am consuming 500 -700 cal a day, 70-90 carbs and 50-90 protein a day. This is what i am eating ....................
Breakfast: coffee with sugar free creamer and Lean Dessert protein shake made with water, not milk.
Liquid in between meals
Lunch: Light and fit yogurt or Campbell's soup at hand, tomato, with 1 scoop of BE Pure unflavored protein powder.
Liquid in between meals IE crystal light/water.
Dinner: Sugar free custard: 2 cups skim milk, splenda 2 eggs/ 1 white.
If Iam really hungry and I cant fall asleep because my stomach is going crazy I will have a yogurt/light before bed.
I feel like i could be doing better but I might be trying to hard. I am really afraid that Dr. Todder is going to say no when she hears my weight loss stats.
LIQUID DIET HELL!!!

I haven't gone out or been around any family or friends. I feel like I want to hide away until I have surgery, like life doesn't begin until I can change what I hate about my self. I am in such a funk! I want to get down to 300 or 299 before surgery. I just want to get this whole process rolling and have the surgery.
I have a date!!!
