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

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

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


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

Random Thoughts Of A Lap Band Patient Seeking Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I woke up this morning (it's Friday morning), jumped on the scale and was pleased with what I saw. I put on my sweats and headed downstairs for my tea and coffee, then I took off to the gym where I hit the pool for 30 minutes of swimming laps. My arms were still sore from my 60 minutes of weight training on Wednesday, but true to form I live in the land of no excuses when it comes to my personal fitness so I did it anyway. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Setting Goals And Getting Goals
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Here we are at the start of 2015 full of good intentions. Who has ever said these words - "right after the holidays I am getting back on track"? I bet those words sound familiar to many of you. They sure do to me. Before my weight loss surgery in 2004 I would say them year after year after year, and perhaps for a short time I would follow some new fad diet, or Weight Watcher's, or Atkins, or Nutri whatever and lose some weight. Then back it would come with a vengeance and then some. . . . keep reading

Lap Band Success - Planning For The Holidays and Winning
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
So Hanukkah started Tuesday evening. I have a large family dinner on Sunday that will include high calorie appetizers, dinner with traditional potato latkes (pancakes) and sour cream and high calorie sugary desserts and lots of wine. I am almost 5 weeks post-op and have my lowest previous banded weight within reach for the end of 2014. . . . keep reading
