Does anyone have any quick and easy meal suggestions for someone who doesn't have a lot of time to cook or the energy after a 10 hour day?!

On days like that, I like to set up a meal in my crock pot so food is ready for me when I get home. Minestrone is a good one for that.

I think one of the keys is to plan your meals in advance, so that you can pre-cook or pre-measure things. So, for example, I made a batch of turkey meatballs and froze them. If I know I will have 4 oz the next day, I weigh out 4 oz worth and put them in the fridge the night before. If I know I will have salmon tomorrow, I put the frozen fillet in the fridge the night before and it takes 12 minutes to broil. I pre-cook my chicken. It's not as tasty as right off the grill or out of the oven, but it's fine on salads or re-heated in a stir fry. Pork tenderloin medallions take only a couple of minutes to pan fry ... ditto turkey burgers or lean beef burgers (I pre-measure 4 oz portions and freeze them individually, or buy already made 4 oz patties). Veggies cook quickly (and in most cases are probably even better raw). I'd love to hear from others on this, but at the end of the day, I think planning is the key.

Nips and tucks
I am a yo yo dieter,and have thought of tightening surgery. I suggest that you wait to be sure you can maintain a fairly stable weight before proceeding.
