    I am now 6 months post op. I have lost a total of 80 pounds and am a stall. OK, so I eat wrong and I am going to get back on track. I want to lose 40 more pounds.

    So my day looks like this:
    I have a Premier Protein drink in the morning
    Cup of tea with Splenda about an hour after the protein drink
    Lunch is generally a boiled egg or ham and cheese rolled up with perhaps a few fresh veggies (mostly cauliflower cause I love it)
    about 2 hours (maybe 3) I have another "snack" of yogurt or cheese, depending on what I had for lunch
    Dinner is mini meatloaf and steamed veggies or a chicken strip (I sometimes just marinate and cook the strip but sometimes I cut it into bite sized pieces and stir fry it with fresh veggies

    If I get hungry later and start getting the munchies, I will have either another protein drink or fresh veggies.

    Now, all of the above being said, this is my back on track plan. I started it last week.
    I have become very complacent and started eating way too many carbs and all the wrong carbs. I know what I have done and why so no comments from the peanut gallery. emoticon

    I'm 9 days post op. I was wondering if you could give me a sample menu each day to get your protein in. Thanks!

    I let it grow the first year and then take cuttings from the root. You have to dig into the soil and just cut what you need off the root. I got my ginger at the grocery store and then planted it in my herb garden but it likes to go all over the place so that is why it is in a pot. When you want some of it just cut what you need and then cover up the rest. Most ginger that you get in the store has about two or three joints that I broke and then planted into the garden or you can use a planter and do the same thing. It is real easy to grow, just make sure that it is good soil and not topsoil since that has no nutrients in it because it is stripped of those. I would stay with the organic soil that way you know that there is no toxins in it.
