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

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. I had tried many and decided on one protein drink, had some soups and some sugar free jello, but that was about it. . . . keep reading

Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery - Removing The Obstacles In The Way - The Power of You
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
So you decided to have weight loss surgery. You go through whatever pre-op program your insurance company or your doctor requires of you. Now it's time, the day has arrived and your mind is spinning in so many directions, the thoughts just keep coming one after another: . . . keep reading


Long Term Lap Band Success - Modifying My Daily Actions Due To Unforeseen Circumstances
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
About 6 weeks ago my right shoulder began kind of hurting, a dull ache every once in a while, and occasionally I would feel a "catch". Oh well, just getting old I thought - keep right on pushing through is what I told myself. I did, and low and behold, the dull ache turned into a chronic, nagging dull ache and from there grew to a full blown pain on moving my right arm in certain ways. I could no longer ignore this. I began paying attention by modifying my swimming to exclude freestyle since that hurt; modifying my weight lifting/strength training to exclude anything that hurt. . . . keep reading

Taking Some Time Off For Me And Still Learning - Long Term Lap Band Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Last week my husband and I escaped for a few days up the coast to Cambria and San Simeon. We stayed in a really lovely little Inn right in downtown Cambria and did our first ever tour of Hearst Castle. The Inn had no fitness facilities and they frown on visitors using the pool at Hearst Castle, no matter how inviting it looks so I was without my typical gym or swimming pool from Thursday through Monday morning. . . . keep reading

Food, Fitness, Water - Living My Life As A Long Term Successful Weight Loss Surgery Patient
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Here I am, 67 years young, working through my 13th year after Lap Band Surgery and my only real complaint is that I wish I had done it 20 years earlier. Was it easy to lose 270 pounds? NO! Is it easy to maintain that weight loss? NO! The one certainty here is that it is worth the effort. I am worth the effort. . . . keep reading

Dealing With The Challenges Of Sugar/ Carbs For Long Term Success After Lap Band, Or Any Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I decided to ask folks on Facebook what the most challenging part of their journey has been. The #1 answer was sugar or carb addiction. So is sugar addiction real? It is for me. This is how it works in my body. I eat a cookie or a cupcake or some ice cream, and within less than 30 minutes I am wanting more. . . . keep reading

Planning To Be A Success - Setting Goals For My Health After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As you read this for the first time I will be 12 years and 2 months post-op from my Lap Band surgery. Oh, and did I mention 270 pounds lighter? I thought about the progression of everything it took to get me to where I am today, a fit, healthy, 67 year young woman enjoying life. It all started with that trip to the seminar about weight loss surgery, then the appointment with the bariatric surgeon, then all the tests and then surgery day. . . . keep reading

Come With Us To The Beach - Long Term Success After Lap Band, or Any Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I wondered what I was going to share with you, all of this week. Food, portions, supplements, exercise, water, personal accountability. It all matters, that's for sure. My opinion is that it all begins with personal accountability which has so many pieces to it. It is being accountable that has us being mindful of our food choices, our portion sizes, our water, exercise and supplements; however - personal accountability has a deeper meaning and impact in my life. . . . keep reading

Food, Glorious Food - Long Term Success After Lap Band, Or ANY Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Since I love eating and I love cooking and creating bariatric friendly dishes it is no surprise that my business discussion with the other half of WLS SUCCESS MATTERS centered on food, hunger, satiety, understanding that food equals fuel, and that even the "worst" of cooks can create a delicious meal in minutes. . . . keep reading
