Smile Hitting the Reset Button

So it's been 8 years since I've had RNY and almost 2 years since I had the B (my daughter)
I have been losing and gaining the same 10 of the 20 pounds over what I was when I got pregnant. My reactive Hypoglycemia got really bad during pregnancy and while its better now I'm basically the carb monster a lot and since My mom stays with us during the week its hard to fight her bad habits (and my husbands) which bleed into mine.
Excuses over I'm not going to whine

So I'm determined to hit the reset button I know I still have my tool and while it may be a bit gummed up With attention I can get it to work again
I'm working out my WOE before I hit the grocery with hubby and toddler in tow

I was thinking I'd do 2 protein shakes (powder) and a dense protein (greek yogurt/cottage cheese/hb egg) during the day and then do dinner ( meat/veggies) on a salad plate at night
I need something plug and play that doesn't require extensive prep but also lets my daughter see me eat actual food. Once I get the feel back of what satiates me (not overfull) I'll cut the shakes down to 1 and bring in more real food
Back after a looooooooooong absence

Thanks!
If you guys don't mind I'm going to track my food/exercise/whatnot here
I'm on Day 2
Day 1 was good
Breakfast
2 coffees with coconut milk
1 scoop plain protein
Lunch
1 chicken thigh some cooked celery and onions and 2 chunks of carrot
(at this point I was satiated)
Snack
container of 2% Fage plain

Dinner
when I got home I had a slice of LF Ham and a slice of regular cheese

I did not want to cook *shock* *horror*
We ordered chinese
I had 1 piece of Gen Tso's chicken 5 broccoli florets and an egg roll
(I don't consider this a fail as I ate till i was comfortable and this is my overall goal)

Exercise I did a 38 minute chair boxing DVD

Day 2
Breakfast
2 fried eggs

Lunch
8 oz coconut milk 1 scoop protein

Snack cheese stick and some real pepperoni

Dinner Tonight is my Mom's bday dinner
BBq Chicken leg some fries Poss Okra if I can figure out how to oven roast it frozen
and I am having a small piece of cake because I got up at 5:30 to make it for her.
I did a 15 minute WATP and a 12 minute seated ab workout I found on Sparkpeople

Observations so far: Its amazing how little it takes to fill me when I actually pay attention.
I'm drinking warm water with lemon and staying hydrated I'm not getting snacky

Missed you, Kier, but you've had so many wonderful things happening! it's great to see you. and you're right, when we pay attention, it really DOESN'T take much to fill us up. Sometimes that's a really good thing...

The lessons from the weekend are making the best choices you can within a framework
Friday night leftover bbq chicken
Sat am I ran out of time before my appt to even make a proshake!
so I brought home the new turkey sausage thing from DD this was around 1
at 4 I had PB toast
Sat night was datenight so we went to Famous Daves I had some smoked pork Collard Greens and mac and cheese most of all of it was left in the plate no regrets we had a wonderful time
Yesterday I had a pro shake a plain waffle and a bunless burger from red robin we hit the grocery on the way home and "dinner" was a slice and a half of ham and a cheese stick.

I need to plan for weekends better so I can plan for Mondays better
The dinner I was supposed to make last night was going to be lunch today
however
B coffee and protein shake made with coco nut milk and cocoa (nsa from Keurig)

3 slices of ham and cheese stick

way too much trail mix

(it's TOM if I don't plan for a good complex carb the grabbable ones call my name)
Dinner will either be sausage white beans and broc or a bunless burger and roasted asparagus

weekend Eating was ok
Saturday we had a luncheon I had sliced steak and grilled green beans (they accommodated my no fries request) I did end up having half a scoop of ice cream which promptly gave me the initial feeling of dumping (STILL GOT IT!)
We baby sat so dinner was asian with a 1/4 cup of rice and an egg roll it tasted better in my mind
However Sunday i still weighed in and was down 7 from Monday which helped me stay on track in the face of cookies and diner with friends Sunday
we went to a Christmas Craft Fair at the Trailside and 7 bajillion ppl had crap delicious food to sell I may have come home with a handmade ornament for James and a Bunny for B
Then lunch at the diner with my gf and her son. Cheese burger with avocado B ate my fries and I ordered it with no but so delish!
Last night made Rav and broc for J and B and had a chicken leg
B now Calls Broccoli Brocca Brocca
Today
I had a double protein shake for Breakfast
since i didn't roast new chicken last night No lunch that was easy so I ate the inside of a cuban sandwich for lunch (I <3 2 kinds of pork product with cheese)
Dinner is roasted Chicken and broc B will have already eaten with her grandparents
