    May Bandsters!

    I am sitting here reading everyone's posts about their up coming surgeries, I think its great! I also think like in a month we should post our pics so we can see the changes in our bodies...I am surgery bound May 22.. I can't wait. Like most of you, I haven't told anyone outside my immediate family, I do not want to hear bad things about this. I don't want to hear "you look fine, your just chubby"! No, I am a skinny girl inside all this unwanted flesh!

    Acceptable Protein Shakes

    To try I bought Trader Joe's protein chocolate shake mix, its not too bad. I did order the UnJURY shakes, they are so much tastier.
  6. Jenny, I am 5'2 and currently 190. I will be banded May 22. My goal is 120! You look fantastic. Luckily my insurance is paying for this because I have high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea. I have lost 8 lbs. since I made this decision to do this. Honestly I feel alot better with 8 lbs. gone. I can only imagine how good I am going to feel & look with more gone off this bod!! I think its very exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats to you girlfriend!

    When To Call The Doctor???

    I think probably the more you move the more the gas will come out. I had 2 c- sections and a hysteretomy, moving is the key to getting out gas. Good luck!

    good luck ladies! I am sending positive vibes your way!
  16. I have a close friend that we always spent 1 night a week going out for drinks and dinner. I told her I can't do it anymore. I feel bad, but want to tell her the truth! Have any of you gone or going through this? I won't even go out to dinner with my hubby yet, I told him I can't handle it. I have been dieting 3 weeks now, lost 6 lbs. I don't want to ruin what I have accomplished. My hubby understands my friend thinks I am to obsessed. ugh... I am not banded yet but waiting for a date!
  17. Thanks for replying but I have told her about my choice of having surgery. She thinks I can do this without such a drastic decision by getting the lap band. I explained to her I can't. She is nervous for me. At the same point I feel a little jealousy coming from her about this and how I might look in the future.

    Treated Differently Now

    Oh boym I am not banded yet & I am going through this with a good friend of mine. She is thinking I am over doing this weight loss thing doing the surgery. She thinks I am obsessed now, I told her I am, how could I not be!! Her and I used to go to dinner all the time now she is going out with her neighbor for dinner and drinks. I guess I am already being shunned for trying to better myself. I am a Diabetic and so is she. I can't tell her she should be doing this too. I feel she is also jealous and I hate that! I plan to do what I need to do foe myself, I just find it hard to believe people change like this. I so can relate to this post!
