So I guess this weight loss thing isn't so easy after all. After dropping 23 lbs prior to surgery and then 21 lbs in my first 4 weeks after surgery the weight loss has definitely slowed. Expected yes...but a little frustrating to have the weight loss slow to only 1 or 2 lbs. per week. In my 2nd month after surgery I am down another 10 lbs which makes it a total of 54 lbs and 31 in my first 2 months since surgery. As if the natural slowing of weight loss wasn't enough, a new wrinkle has been thrown into the equation, a promotion and a job relocation back to my home town...I'm scared!
So this is my dilemma as I need help! I do not have a solution right now. Sure, it's easy to say order the typical salad with dressing on the side, have everything grilled, stay away from alcohol, etc., etc. But sometimes these solutions just aren't easy to come by. I welcome all comments and solutions!!! In the meantime my will power will just have to keep me going as I only have 3.5 cc's in my 14 cc band and am still not feeling much restriction. I can do it...I just don't know for how long!

When this all started I never thought I would even get this far! I've got a personal goal now of 269.9 by Turkey Day which would be about another 7 lbs in the next 3 weeks...well within my reach. I have 2cc's in my 12cc band and go back for another fill on the 17th of this month...hoping for another 2 cc's. But there is danger looming in the distance...
I just recently got promoted and will be moving back to CA. In prep for this move I have a business trip to CA next week and this trip will consist of dinners out, happy hours at bars and much, much temptation. I think I will be okay, I just have to stay prepared. I find preparation is the number thing that has kept me on track since I was banded 6 weeks ago. So if you have any tips of how to eat right on business or road trips...I'm all ears!
Hope everyone is well!
