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


Where I Go For Motivation - Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
So it's Monday morning, my sinuses are congested, my knee is screaming at me, my hip aches from my hike yesterday and it's time to get ready for the gym. The way I see it, I have only two choices - to go to the gym or stay home. . . . keep reading

Success - How Do I measure thee? Let me count the ways
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Success after any weight loss surgery begins as a number on the scale for sure; and it is important to weigh ourselves regularly so we stay in touch with the number we declare as our goal and maintain our weight in a reasonable range. The scale does have a place in our lives. Rest assured it is NOT the only way to measure our success. . . . keep reading

I Love Food!
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I love food, I love to eat, and I love to write. My love of food has transitioned into a way of being since I had my Lap Band surgery in 2004. That love has resulted in our newly published cookbook, Eat Your Way to Success And Learn How To Control Hunger - A Weight Loss Surgery Friendly Cookbook. . . . keep reading

Fabulous Breakfast After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
This morning I decided to try another take on the flourless pancakes and share my step by step with you. This recipe will easily feed 2, I chose to serve it with some Trader Joe's Maple Brown Sugar chicken Sausage which are delicious and come in at 50 calories and 5 grams of protein each. I had one, I gave my husband 2 of them. He is not a weight loss surgery patient and he is totally satisfied with his food quantity, and he mentioned the delicate flavor of the pancakes so all is good with my world. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Look at What's On Your Plate And How It Got There
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I want to live a "normal" life. I want to be a "normal" size. I want to continue to increase my strength and endurance and flexibility each year instead of losing strength, endurance and flexibility each time the calendar moves forward a year. I managed to attain all of that. I reached weight loss goals after my LAP BAND surgery, I have reached fitness goals I never in my wildest dreams thought possible for me, so what's this rant all about? . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - All Is Well With My Weight Loss Surgery AND I Have Pizza Back In My Life
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
This has been a very positive couple of weeks. First of all I had my annual endoscopy on Friday and my bariatric doctor gave me a green light - my stomach is free of erosion, my band is in a perfect place, and all is right with my weight loss surgery world. THAT is always good news for a WLS patient 12+ years post op. Then! I discovered that I can have pizza back in my life. . . . keep reading

A Morning At The Gym In January - Living a Life Of Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Mornings at the gym in January are frustrating. First of all, the parking lot is full of all of those New Year's Resolutions people. I look around and wonder who will still be here in March and April. I know, after 12 years, that it will be less than half of the folks currently trying to meet their New Year's resolutions of losing XXXX pounds, or getting healthy or, if you look carefully at the women, trying to hook up with someone new and hard bodied! . . . keep reading
