    Need a little Support and Advice

    I have to agree with Laura. If your ex would not be supportive something that would improve your health and self esteem or even just be supportive of your desires and dreams - then why would you want to reconcile with this person?
  16. Thanks for posting your blog site in your signature. It is a hoot. I will be following along., Karen

    To Tell or Not to Tell?

    A girl at work had it done before me and she tried to keep it private -- Long story short It eventually came out and no one judged her for it. In fact, it was one of the things that gave me the courage to go for it. Plus my children know and they are 10 and 12 and have absolutely no clue what it means to keep a secret (unless it involves hiding their crimes LOL). So I knew everyone would know sooner or later and I just let everyone know what I was up to - They have all been nonjudgemental and supportive.

    6 month diet

    I had my choice between 6 months of diet or 3 months of diet and exercise -- I chose the 3 month route even though I despise exercise and guess what I've learned to love the gym. The diet don't dread it too much -- It will be baby steps, learning portion control, what to eat, how important chewing and going slow will be post banding. It's basically just getting you ready for things that will change post band.

    1st Stage to lapBand Success!

    Well, My surgeon has a whole team in their office - dietician, nurse practioner, psych nurse, etc. so their is a patient liasson who keeps track of everything you need to do and then she submits it to the insurance. They told me it would be 2 to 3 weeks before we heard anything. Two weeks have passed now and I am on week three and hoping that everything is going to go through. The one thing that might be my problem area is that for my exercise plan I was supposed to see a trainer - Well I live in a small town and their was not a trainer at the closest gym to me so I wrote my own exercise plan. Hoping the insurance doesn't decline me because of that. I'm thinking that if you have to attend a seminar prior to meeting your surgeon -= You will probably be in a similar plan as I was and you will have all the same support people available to you in the office.
