A week to go!

I am one week out from my banding date and have just begun my second week of liquids. The liquid part I was really not looking forward to but it has not been so bad. Many doctors have various plans for the pre-op diet. Where I am having my procedure they require one week of a liquid diet and clear liquids only the day prior to surgery. I was told by my Doctor that starting the liquid portion an extra week early helps to jump start the loss and that made sense to me so I did so! I am allowed protein shakes, lowfat yogurt, creamed soups w/protein powder added and 64+ oz of water/ crystal light per day. After one week I had a 7lb loss! Wondering now what my surgery day weight will be?
