By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog

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.

A Morning At The Gym In January - Living a Life Of Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog

Complacency Is A Buzz Kill For Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Here I sit. It's December 28th, 2016 and time to look back on my year and see what I have achieved towards my personal goals related to weight loss surgery and what I choose to set as goals for 2017.

Resisting Change Doesn't Work For Me - Long Term Lap Band Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I walked into the gym early Wednesday morning I saw a sign where I needed to check in that said "Pool Closed Until Further Notice". I immediately began to panic and then get angry because I joined this gym BECAUSE they had an indoor swimming pool and my body needs to swim 2-3 times a week for many reasons all of them relating to my health. . . . keep reading
