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

By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
It's been a long two weeks. Lots of crazy things going on in my life, just like in yours. My stress level has been through the roof, and I found myself grabbing for a cookie, some chips, or whatever presented itself to me.
