    Spring into March 2010 Bandsters

    Oh boy...tomorrow is the big day!! Went to the Dr's this morning to start my participation in a clinical study of the Lap-Band. Confirmed my surgery for 12:30pm tomorrow. Now I just got a call that my surgery has been moved to 7:30am because that person just cancelled and everyone else for the day has been moved up. YIKES! I gotta be at the hospital at 5:30am! My wife is not a happy camper about that one. Oh well. Can't wait to join all of the March bandsters. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life. And so, my journey begins.

    Spring into March 2010 Bandsters

    Sounds like everyone banded so far this month is doing well. I can't wait. 4 more days!!! This week can't go by fast enough. I saw an earlier post where someone had said co-workers or friends were giving them a hard time about getting banded. My wife and I were at a bar mitzvah this weekend where all of our friends are in attendance. I would have to say that for the most part, all of them were very supportive. One of my friends said "so you decided to do this crazy thing, huh?" I was like, yes and it's not crazy. It's not like I made a rash decision. I researched this for over a year before making my decision. Besides, this is about me and what works for me. Jeez, I wanted to smack her in head! Funny thing is, so many of in our circle of friends are dieting. They just don't realize that 9 out of 10 people that diet and take off the weight will gain it back because as soon as they stop dieting, they go back to their old eating habits. I know. I've been there many many times before. We "bandsters" are using a tool that will help us control our appetities and make lifestyle changes that will stick. I am so excited about getting banded. I wish it was Friday already.

    Good Luck to everyone getting banded this week! Today I am going to my PCP to get my blood work, EKG and the rest of my pre-op tests. On Friday, I'm going to my cardiologist for a checkup and his clearance. The days can't pass fast enough. Seminar Date: 02/17/10 Consultation: 02/25/10 Surgery Date: 03/26/10
  5. Okay, I joined this site back in september of last year after doing months of due diligence. I've learned more in the past year about lap bands than I ever thought possible. Well, I finally went to a seminar, met with a surgeon and now have my procedure date set. Friday, March 26th 2010. 4 weeks to go and I'm really excited. I cannot wait to shed this weight. These past five years I have been packing it on and now I'm ready to be start my new life. I have fought with my weight my entire life and realize that for some people diets alone just don't work. I've lost and regained so many times over the years. Now, I just want to lose it, and for good. Can't wait to start posting my progress!!!
