    So I went to a wedding last night and definitely consumed more calories than I ever had since before my 2-week pre-op diet.  I didn't have a scale nor labels to scan, so I estimated everything in MFP, and logged in about 2000 calories.  I didn't really eat much, so most of this was comprised of booze (red wines and gin & sodas) and 3 spoonfuls of creme brûlée.
    Well, either I over-exerted myself with all the dancing, or I was drunker than I planned, or I possibly experienced my second-ever dumping episode (I say possibly because I'm still not sure the first one I had was really dumping nor am I positive that last night was one either...).  I was sweating at the level of my pre-op days, and barfed for like 15 minutes.  Luckily, I felt sooo much better after the barfing that I got to enjoy the rest of the night, so all was not completely lost.
    I have another wedding to go to this month, and will do better.  Pinky swear.

    i would add that eating slowly and chewing fully has an effect on how full you feel.

    Well January finally did it. Started the month and ended the month at the exact same weight.
    First time my weight journal has had a Zero written in it.
    Feb 1 is the 18 month mark and it does feel like the end of one journey and the start of another.
    Do not see the surgeon again till August but he was happy at 175 so i do not see any issues there.

    Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
    As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
    The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
    Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

    I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

    I hope everyone has had a great summer and i hope you go into this holiday season from a better place than the year before.
    This last week was my 30th wedding anniversary and i am happy to think that i will have many more to come. In the not so distant past i was not so sure i would live to see this one and 35 or 40 was beyond my expectations. Anything could still happen but at least i have stopped digging in my effort to get of the hole i found myself in.
    I have made 3 life changing decisions in the last few decades.
    1. asking my wife to marry me - being a child of divorced parents colors your expectations about getting and staying married.
    2. saying yes when my wife asked if i wanted children - This was a lie at the time. having a child was THE most terrifying thing i could think of. Today there is nothing i would not do for my daughter and i feel a love  i did not know could exist inside a person.
    3. accepting that i could not control my weight by myself and getting this surgery to save my own life. Putting myself first as a way to be there for them is not a concept that I lived by before.
    If you ever wonder is it worth it yes it is cause i was worth it and they are worth it.
    Never give up folks
    Whatever you are working towards you have the rest of your life to get there.
