What kind of commute is it? There are some trails/roads that would be brutal on a road bike, especially an aluminum bike like the K2. Also, coming from a mountain bike, you might find that the position on a classic road bike is uncomfortable. Some companies ofter a relaxed road bike or a flat bar road bike.
Test riding a few bikes on your commute would help you get a feel for what you're buying into.
If you decide on a road bike what is your budget? A cheap solution might involve slapping some slick tires on your old mountain bike.
Congrats on dropping the weight!
