One day til pre-op appt

I am keeping pretty busy moving stuff back where it belongs today. The painter is finished with the kitchen and living room. They look awesome. Now he is busy in the dining room. Wish the rain would stop and the sun would come out. We have had rain for the last week and a half. Boo Hoo. I am a sunshine girl. Lived in Southern California all my life until 5 years ago and the winters here in Oregon are hard to get used to. The only thing that makes it all worthwhile is that when the sun does come out it is gorgeous.
I am doing liquids this week and last. I am trying to lose weight around the liver. The doctor said it makes the surgery easier for him and for me in the longrun. Drinking 5 Carnation Instant Breakfasts (sugar free kind) a day plus a 300 calorie frozen dinner with at least 15 grams of protein. I savor every bite of the dinners. Also I am allowed to have one protein bar containing no more than 200 calories and at least 10 grams of protein. It averages out to 1250 calories and 65 grams of protein.
