Preparing For Lap Band surgery -- What To Have On Hand.
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I often get hung up in the details of things, planning to the nth degree, but somehow, even after attending support groups before surgery, and following my doctor's instructions, I still did not have everything I needed in the house for right after my Lap Band® surgery. I had tried many and decided on one protein drink, had some soups and some sugar free jello, but that was about it. . . . keep reading

New 15 Year Study Proves That Gastric Band Surgery Is Effective
By: Joe Bragg
Because obesity is a chronic disease, any proposed obesity treatment should be expected to demonstrate long-term durability to be considered effective. Yet for bariatric surgery, few long-term weight loss data are available. . . . keep reading

Obesity As A Disease - One Doctor's Take
By: Dr. Yoni Freedhoff
In his June 24th, 2013 Blog post on Weighty Matters, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff comments on the American Medical Association's declaration that obesity is a disease. He makes some great points. What do you think? Here is what Dr. Freedhoff has to say: . . . keep reading

The Weight Loss Surgery Dilemma - Should I Choose LAP-BAND™ or....
By: Sandi Henderson SandisBandedLiving Blog
I promised you all round two of the meeting I just attended of the LAP-BAND™ Patient Executive Council. I find that when I sit and look at all we talked about, and all we accomplished, and all of the studies that were presented to us a few things stood out for me.... . . . keep reading


Living A Life I Never Dreamed Possible With My Lap Band
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
My 11th year "surgiversary" is almost here. I had my Lap Band Surgery on May 28th 2004. I never even dreamed of losing more than half of my 424 pound body weight at that time, let alone be able to enjoy the active life I am living today, at 66. . . . keep reading

Success After Lap Band surgery Take 2 - And The Story Continues
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I am sitting here at the same weight I was after Lap Band Surgery followed by my plastic surgery. That puts me at the same weight that I was in 2009, and it is 6 years later. I am a happy camper for sure since I had some regain while my doctor, and I, figured out what my band issues were, and it appears that my surgery on 11/17 has given me the opportunity to not only shed that regain, but to go for new, lower numbers, if I choose. Those are the key words - I CHOOSE. . . . keep reading

Fabulous Breakfast After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
This morning I decided to try another take on the flourless pancakes and share my step by step with you. This recipe will easily feed 2, I chose to serve it with some Trader Joe's Maple Brown Sugar chicken Sausage which are delicious and come in at 50 calories and 5 grams of protein each. I had one, I gave my husband 2 of them. He is not a weight loss surgery patient and he is totally satisfied with his food quantity, and he mentioned the delicate flavor of the pancakes so all is good with my world. . . . keep reading

Success After Weight Loss Surgery Means Enjoying Food Not Dieting
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I have said many times before that I am NOT on a diet although I track my calories and protein. I do that to live in awareness so that if the scale goes up or my clothes feel snug I know why. It's quite simple really. It also gives me the opportunity to change what I am doing to "unsnug" those clothes because I can easily look back and clearly see where I can improve. . . . keep reading

What Are You Waiting For? - Choose WLS Success Today
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I sit here messaging with two folks on Facebook, trying to just walk them through their own thought process about their weight loss surgery, their life in general, their reasons and excuses for where they are today I am grateful that "the stars aligned" and brought me to my bariatric doc in 2004. I was 424 pounds, miserable, killing myself slowly with food and still living in denial. I knew that "if I wanted to" I could lose the weight. . . . keep reading

Moving Off The Couch To Keep The Scale Moving - Long Term Lap Band Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I have said it before and I can't help but keep repeating myself - Moving my body at least 5 days a week has been one of the major contributors to my long term success. My mantra for many years was I hate working out, I hate sweating, I hate hurting. Somewhere along this journey I have been on since 2004 that mantra changed to BRING IT BABY! . . . keep reading
