Weight Loss Surgery Is, or Is Not, The Easy Way Out
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Today I am reprinting a blog I wrote back at least 6 years ago - Is Weight Loss Surgery The Easy Way Out? I get angry every time a "newbie" tells me that folks are saying they took the easy way out by having surgery. . . . keep reading


Long Term Weight Loss Surgery Success - Holiday Appetizers That Are Easy, Inexpensive And Always A Hit
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Today is Thanksgiving. I wish you and yours a Happy and a Healthy Thanksgiving! My family dinner is simple this year - roast turkey, cauliflower stuffing and baked sweet potatoes. My daughter is making pies for the group and I will probably have a thin slice of her bourbon pecan pie because this lifestyle is not about depriving me of anything I truly want, it is about knowing how much and how often is reasonable while still maintaining my health and my weight. . . . keep reading

Tis The Season to Be Grateful - Happiness After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
There are basically two ways of looking at life: • Looking at what you don't have with avaricious thoughts • Be grateful for what you do have I've lived life on both sides of this coin and work hard daily to keep myself in the head space of being grateful for what I do have. Why? Because it' s easier, has me calm, smiling and looking for the next miracle in my life. My head doesn't hurt, my muscles aren't tense, and I don't look for food to stuff my negative emotions/perspective. . . . keep reading

How Falling Can Be A Non Scale Victory - Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
So here I am 13+ years post-op, maintaining, in the gym 5 days a week, living a fabulous life and what happens? I am walking into the atrium area of the Hilton Long Beach hotel after a nice walk to Starbucks and back at about 8 PM - and I trip. I tripped over a lamp base, fell into a chair, and then managed to crack the back of my head on a granite and metal table. OUCH, right? . . . keep reading

Fitness Is A Way Of Life For Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I worked out with my trainer this morning I realized just HOW important fitness is to me and WHY. After weight loss surgery, as the weight came off I was excited to shop for new clothes and try doing physical things, like walking around the block, or the down to the beach through the sand. These were things I hadn't done in years and they felt great. . . . keep reading

Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery - Sugar TRULY Is Evil, The Saga Continues
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I move through my 14th year after weight loss surgery, Lap Band Surgery to be specific, I continue to learn that sugar is NOT my friend. And yet I am still taken in by the smells, the tastes, the ease with which I can swallow and digest it no matter how many times I remind myself. So I'd like to share my Jewish Holiday saga with you all today since Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, New Year's Eve and the mad rush of food and festivities will soon be on us. . . . keep reading
