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


Daily Action Plans For Long Term Success After Lap Band Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
Been thinking about Daily Action Plans today and I went into a detail of what my days will look like this week to achieve my goal for the week which is to lose about 2 lbs. As I wrote my plan for my meals (all delicious by the way) and my fitness and my water I realized once again that it is in this act- this act of planning my days, knowing what comes next, and having a Plan B somewhere at the bottom of my purse for when things change, that has allowed me to be successful. . . . keep reading

Long Term Lap Band Success - The Rules - Why Do We Resist Them?
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
As I am embarking on my 14th year after weight loss surgery and maintaining a 250+ pound weight loss people often ask me how I do it. My answer is really not very complicated - I followed the rules my doctor gave me before surgery and I continue to follow them all these years later. The typical response to my reply is the glazed eye look and the statement "but it's so hard to________". You can finish it with whichever rule or rules you choose to put in there. . . . keep reading

Long Term Weight Loss Surgery Success and The Trigger Foods Of Summer
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
A trigger food is a specific food that sets off a course of overeating where control is lost. The most common trigger foods are calorie-dense, highly palatable foods that are often combinations of sugar and fat (e.g. ice cream, cookies) or fat and salt (e.g. nuts, potato chips, French fries). . . . keep reading

Thirteen Years After WLS And Still Journaling
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I am 13 years and 1 month Post-Op. My weight loss surgery has afforded me a new, healthy life which I am grateful for every single day. Wouldn't you think that after 13 years of eating "right", exercising regularly, staying hydrated and taking my vitamins, I could put my food journal away and just "live" my life like a "normal" person (whatever that is), and quit journaling my food? For me, the answer is NO! . . . keep reading

Emotional Eating Doesn't Serve My Long Term Success After Weight Loss Surgery
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I am human, and the nature of human beings is that we are not perfect. I am not perfect. Every now and again over the past 13 years I seem to let it slip my mind that I am a weight loss surgery patient. It's usually during times of stress, be they family, financial, medical or whatever. I then find myself eating cookies, chips, froyo, ice cream and other assorted processed junk foods. . . . keep reading

Being Sick Totally Cramps My Style In Ways I Never Would Have Thought About - Long Term WLS Success
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I hadn't realized how much a part of my daily life all of this activity had become. I have been at it long enough that I take my freedom of movement and my energy levels for granted. All I can say at this point is that I wake up every day, even while I am not feeling my best, and am grateful for the new chance at living a full and active life that I was given when I chose to have weight loss surgery. . . . keep reading

What I Have Learned After 13 Years As a Weight Loss Surgery Patient
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
May 28, 2004. That was the day I was reborn. I was given a second chance to salvage my adult life, my health, my relationship with myself and others, and to find my WHY. Many begin their journey knowing their WHY - they want to get rid of meds, cure obesity related diseases, fit into single digit size clothes, play on the floor with their kids or grandkids. I wanted all of this, and at the time of my surgery never knew I wanted more. I never knew I could have more. . . . keep reading
