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

By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I began giving back to the Weight Loss Surgery Community about a year after I had my Lap Band surgery in 2004. Then it was just speaking at my doc's informational seminars after having lost 100+ pounds. My audience grew as I lost over 200 pounds and the time went on. I found I was so energized by being able to do this, to actual lose 250+ pounds and create a whole new life for myself that I wanted to share it with anyone who would listen. . . . keep reading

Finding Myself Starting Over As The Year Ends - Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
The week before Christmas I contracted a stomach bug unlike anything I had experienced since being banded in 2004. Thank goodness I made it through it without having to go to the doctor's. I was able to text my bariatric doc and ask for a prescription for something to stop the nausea. It saved my life, and possibly my weight loss surgery since Lap Bands and throwing up do not go together well. OK, that was TMI and I apologize, I am done now. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Exercising My Options - 2017
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Here we are. Mid-December 2017 and once again I find myself in the throws of SADS (seasonal affective disorder), Yes, this gets me every year - the article that follows was written several years ago and all of it is still my truth. Added to the short days and cold mornings is the fire that has devastated Ventura County where I currently live. I am blessed because the bad air and some ash is all I have to deal with while hundreds have lost their homes or been evacuated. . . . keep reading

Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery - Sleep Is One Of The Cornerstones of Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
We all know that after Weight Loss Surgery portion sizes, protein first, staying hydrated, fit living, taking our vitamins are all cornerstones of success that we affectionately call "The Rules". What if I added one more to the mix that we don't often think of as a requirement for success? What if that one were SLEEP? . . . 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
