I am SOOOO not a Monday person but today my band and I reconciled our differences for the time being and called a truce.

I had been fighting with my band for the past week I would guess trying to get food in and to stay down. It seemed like everything was bothering me that is until today. So yes Monday's can be good. My band and I became friends again and I ate! YAY! I managed to get down for lunch a cup of some chicken/rice/black bean/corn soup with some protein powder thrown in for good measure as well as a few blackberries. This afternoon I had a little snack consisting of one hard boiled egg and a pickle. My circulating levels of salts must be low cause I've totally been craving pickles... and no I'm not pregnant. I haven't decided what to make for dinner yet but I'm thinking a crustless quiche of some sort.

I have a question regarding Breakfast for everyone out there. What do you eat? I find that I tend to be rather tight in the morning and this creates a little bit of a problem. I have a few pills that I take in the morning on top of my multivitamin and that does not leave room for food. I am well aware that in order to maintain my weight loss I need to be having 3 meals a day. I often find myself having slider foods like yogurt for breakfast only because I know that it will go down and then I can take my pills and be on my way to work without getting stuck and having had breakfast. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what everyone out there uses, or if they even use anything to increase their protein intake but BeneProtein is what was recommended to me by my dietitian and what I've used in the past and started using again. It's your standard run of the mill whey protein isolate only that it is unflavoured so that you can add it to soups etc without having them taste like vanilla or chocolate. It's manufactured by Nestle Nutrition and one scoop (which I might add is actually rather small at only a 7 g portion) has 6 g of protein and 25 calories.

I'm off to my dinner now and then take the dogs out for some play/exercise time! Spring is starting to arrive here and I'm able to go outside with out my rated to -40 coat/boats and plethora of mittens and toques. A fleece seems to be enough and I have at times even gotten away with shirt sleeves! Shocking I know!

    Hi there! I just noticed that you are one of my new followers on my blog. I am now following you as well! Hey I our stats are very similar as far as start weight and current weight. Cool beans, it's hard to find people on here that got banded right at 200 lbs. I always feel bad because I feel like no one gets why I got banded at the lower end of the scale but hey, it's what I felt I needed! Looking forward to reading your blog! tata

    oh yeah, I forgot to say that I drink Atkins protein shakes for breakfast every day, even on the weekends. I am not a breakfast person and I never have much of an appetite in the mornings. I will have to try that Beneprotein. I already use the Benefiber flavored powder for water.
