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

The Weight Loss Surgery Dilemma - Should I Choose LAP-BAND™ or....
By: Sandi Henderson SandisBandedLiving Blog
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

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. At the time, as well as now in 2013 Gastric Bypass is still called "the gold standard" in weight loss surgery.... . . . keep reading

What Will Weight Loss Surgery Cost Me?

Weight loss surgery? Really? For me? Why? What'll it cost me? Perhaps a better question is: What'll it cost you if you don't? . . . keep reading


Long Term Lap Band Success - Winning The Mental Game
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I woke up this morning to a gray sky, warm and humid house and a low level of energy. As I sat with my coffee cup I urged myself gently to get going to the gym. I finally made it out of the house and to the gym and was in the water by 7:45 AM which was at least ½ hour later than my typical latest start. . . . keep reading

Making The Most Out Of My Day - Lessons Learned On My Lap Band Journey
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I woke up this morning with all of my joints hurting, not just my arthritic knee. Even my elbows were hurting and my thumbs if you could imagine. I had nothing pressing and could actually have turned over and tried to go back to sleep, or at least taken some pain meds and just zoned out for the rest of the day. I didn't. . . . keep reading

Change Can Be Frightening If You Let It - Long Term Lap Band Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I got a text from my trainer on 7/9 telling me she would be unavailable until 7/28 due to a family emergency. I immediately wished her the best with her family situation and hit send. Then the panic ensued. What am I going to do while she's gone? . . . keep reading

Lap Band Success: Glacier By Helicopter - Yes I CAN
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
OK, I think this might be the last of my vacation 2014 blogs, or not. You can always hope. I think the most incredible moment for me on my tour of Alaska, Victoria BC, and Washington state had to be the helicopter to the glacier and the walk/hike around the glacier. Was it because of its beauty? Yes. . . . keep reading

Sharing An Afternoon With Wellesse - Traveling With My Lap Band
By: Sandi Henderson
I recently had the opportunity to visit the little sleepy town of Ferndale, WA and spend some time with the folks from Wellesse. It amazed me to find their facility in the middle of beautiful pastureland. We always think of manufacturing as a "dirty job" with nasty smokestacks spewing horrible chemicals into our air. Not so. Remember, these folks pride themselves on using ALL NATURAL ingredients, and I do believe that being "green" is high on their priority list. . . . keep reading
