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

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

Obesity As A Disease - One Doctor's Take
By: Dr. Yoni Freedhoff
In his June 24th, 2013 Blog post on Weighty Matters, Dr. Yoni Freedhoff comments on the American Medical Association's declaration that obesity is a disease. He makes some great points. What do you think? Here is what Dr. Freedhoff has to say: . . . 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 Life With Your Lap Band® Means More Than Fills
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I have just returned from my fifth annual trip to the Lap Band Patient Executive Council meeting. I was honored to be invited to listen to an internationally renowned surgeon, Dr. John Dixon, and others speak about what it takes to have long term success with this incredible medical device that I credit with saving my life. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Move Your Body And Watch What Happens
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I listened to my doctor from the first day of the informational seminar and followed his instructions to the letter. His instructions included eating protein first, drinking 64 ounces of water, and moving my body every day, working up to 30 minutes per day, every day. I worked diligently at all of it from the day after I had my Lap Band Surgery in 2004, sort of. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Body Image - The Eyes Have It
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
One thing I have learned this past 11 years is that the brain does not always register what the eyes see. Let me begin with me - at 424 pounds. I was going through life every day, doing the best I could, getting my hair "just-so", putting make-up on every day, dressing nicely, and not overly concerned about my weight - thinking I looked just fine. . . . keep reading

Never Lose Hope - Long Term Lap Band Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Webster's Dictionary defines the verb to hope as follows: "to desire with expectation of obtainment". I don't know about you, but that is how I went into this Weight Loss Surgery thing. I had the desire to resolve my health issues by losing weight, using my Lap Band as a tool to reach my expectations. . . . keep reading

Life After Lap Band Surgery - What I Did On Summer Vacation
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I just returned from 10 days in New Mexico, Utah, Arizona and Colorado. I am officially in love with the Four Corners area of our Southwest. What beautiful country, what wonderful people, and what a great experience to be able to move freely hiking, climbing and just living at between 5000 and 10, 000 foot elevation for 10 days and do absolutely anything I chose to do, with no ill effects. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - How I Celebrate Goals Achieved
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
It started when I was a child; it continued into my teen years and never stopped until I reached over 400 pounds. What was it you ask? It was food as the answer for everything. If I fell down and got a "boo boo" it was here, have a cookie it will get all better. If I went potty in the bathroom instead of my diaper it was here, have a cookie, what a good girl. If I got a good report card it was let's go get ice-cream and cookies to celebrate. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - Fifty Shades of …Yogurt
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I posted a picture of my 6 ounce container of Fage 0% Greek yogurt with a note that the entire container was 100 calories and 18 grams of protein and I just added hot salsa to it for a taste treat. I asked for everyone else's ideas on how they used it and thought I would share some more of mine today as well. We can never have too many ways to use a high protein low calorie food that tastes good now can we? . . . keep reading
