Long Term Lap Band Success - It's Not Just Me Folks, And We Have Evidence To Prove It!
By: Sandi Henderson from SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I sit here thinking about the latest trend in weight loss surgeries which is certainly the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, aka the VSG or "Sleeve", I remember that my chosen surgery was the latest and greatest back in 2004 when I chose to have Lap Band surgery.

After my morning coffee, water is pretty much the only liquid I drink all day. That's how I get at least 64 ounces in, and that is also how I keep some "head hunger" at bay, and that is how I feed my body what it needs to carry the nutrients to all of my cells and regenerate them and keep my skin, hair, nails looking good, all my systems "go" and me feeling good. . . . keep reading
