It's official, I'm a bandster...

I came home from the hospital Friday evening and today is my second day of clear liquids. So far, so good. It's all still a little surreal--after waiting for so many months for the big day to arrive, it came and went so quickly.
I couldn't wait to weigh myself when I got home...dumb move. I was up 5 pounds from the morning of admission. Of course, I know that can't be fat, it has to be fluid retention. I'm thinking I should stay off of the scale for awhile now...at least until I'm out of the clear liquid stage. We'll see if I actually have the willpower to leave the scale alone...I'm usually an "every day" weigher.
I'm enjoying my "cocktails" every 15 minutes, but I sure am looking forward to progressing to more than 1 ounce at a time. It's still three weeks until I get to pureed foods, so patience and determination are going to be the things I work on most right now.
