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

What's On Your Plate - Eating For Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
When I had surgery almost 13 years ago I progressed from liquids to mushies and then to solids as prescribed by my doctor. Once I was into solids my menu began expanding except for breakfast and lunch. I ate the same breakfast and lunch for 2+ years and boy did I ever get bored with it. I spent untold dollars on" bariatric foods" - pudding mixes, protein bars, and other highly processed items. . . . keep reading

Being Complacent Doesn't Support My Healthy Lifestyle - Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog

How I Put My Support Systems In Place For Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I had weight loss surgery on May 28, 2004. That is almost 13 years ago. I went into surgery terrified, afraid I would fail at this last-ditch effort to shed some of the 424 pounds I was carrying around that were killing me slowly. I woke up after surgery in pain and still terrified wondering what I had done to myself. . . . keep reading

My Mindful Eating Tips -- For Long Term Lapband Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I sat down and wondered what I wanted to share in this week's newsletter. I've been thinking a lot about mindful eating as I have eating a little too fast lately and paying the price. I re-read this blog and thought - "It makes the points I need to make for myself and the entire WLS Community" - so here it is again. . . . 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

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
