On 10 December hubby & I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. And, what better place to do that than in the city where we got married - NYC! Now, this isn't our first visit to the city (in fact it will be my 15th [or thereabouts] and hubby's 12th [or thereabouts]), but it will be our first since I have been banded. So, I'm asking for a little help here on where would be a good place for us to celebrate our anniversary with lunch or dinner on Friday 10 December:
somewhere that hubby can have a good meal but where I can also eat a band-sized portion and not look like a freak
somewhere a little bit special, but not somewhere that we have to dress up in designer togs (because we don't own any) in order to fit in - casual-casual as opposed to smart-casual would be the preferred dress code!
somewhere that isn't the Rainbow Room (done it, not impressed) or River Cafe (done it enough times and ready to try somewhere new)
somewhere like Sarabeth's (done it, like it) or Good Enough to Eat (same)
Thank you in advance!

(a total loss so far of 50lbs; 46lbs to go!)
The question that goes with this award is: If you had one chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?
Hmm, that's a hard one. What's the saying about never regretting anything you've done, only the things you haven't done?! The trouble with going back and changing just one thing, is the repercussions that that change can have on everything else - we've all seen Back to the Future; but I'm being a bit too literal here, this is only theoretical after all! I guess the change would have to be doing whatever needed to be done to not end up being nearly 100lbs overweight in the first place!
And now I need to nominate six bloggers for the award (although being so late with this one means most people have probably already received it!) I'm going to follow Tina's idea and nominate bloggers with less than 100 followers (like me) in the hope that it will send a few new readers their way - we all appreciate more followers, don't we?!
Frst up is Alison because she's a fellow Brit, and there aren't that many of us (of the banded variety, I mean!)
Julie, because she's struggling and needs our support (and she's a Euro-bandster!)
Sam, who is six months banded and has already lost over 60lbs!
Jennifer, because she makes me laugh.
Oh, darn it, I'm going to stop there because all the other bandsters I know of have more than 100 followers!

I haven't lost any weight since the end of August. I've no one to blame but myself though as I'm simply not trying at the moment. I seem to have slipped into a phase where I'm really quite content to be this weight/size (15st 5lbs/215lbs, UK size 18/20) since it's such a novelty! My confidence has soared and I feel good about myself. Admittedly, I would probably feel a gazillion times better if I weighed less, but for now I'm ok here. The problem with being 'ok here' though is that I'm snacking away on biscuits and chocolate like the end of the world was nigh. I'm not putting on weight as a result of these snacks, but if I could give them the elbow I'd probably lose some weight.
I've also noticed that I'm eating too much; I get to a stage where I'm full and then I push it and have another mouthful of whatever it is I'm eating, even though I know I'm likely to end up having to make a dash for the toilet. How stuipid is that? I need to get myself back under control!
Anyhoo, I hope all the BOOBsters have a wonderful time in Chicago this weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos (I think!)
