Any other blogging bandsters out here?



Recommended Posts

I was just banded on August 2nd and so far it's been an absolutely fantastic experience, except for the "Oh, my head hasn't changed, I still sometimes crave foods!" part ;-).

I've started a blog as a way to chronicle my journey and also have some fun with it ... trying to incorporate some humor into what is -- let's face it -- not always an easy road to walk.

If I show you my blog will you show me yours?

And are there any blogs you regularly follow that you'd recommend?

Thanks!

Congratulations! And those head cravings will get easier as you go along. Remember old habits follow us. This is a lifestyle change. Not a cure all. I truely wish that it would change those habits because that would be a miracle but they do get easier to deal with as you go along. Once and awhile it's ok to give into those cravings. This isn't a diet. Diets fail. There is no bad food. Everything can be eaten in moderation. If we don't give into those cravings once and awhile, then we tend to go on a binge. Once you move up in your progress and your fills you will be amazed at how those cravings just disappear. I don't crave any of the things that I did before. Your taste buds change.

I also blog my progress so if you want to check it out, please do. Thanks for sharing yours. And good luck to you.

Congrats on being banded! My blog is below. When you take a look at it, on the left hand side is a blog list of quite a few of the bandster blogs I follow (many of them very popular, such as Catherine, AmyW, MrsFatass, etc.).

You'll also see on the right a list of infertility blogs that I follow, as I suffer from infertility, thus the reason I got the band in the first place, so we can try using donor eggs or donor embryos. Losing the extra weight will lessen the risk of being morbidly obese during the pregnancy.

It is great that you are writing about your journey. I follow several that are great inspirations. You can find them on my blog...posted below. Catherine's is great, Drazil hilarious, ...In the land of cheese & sunkist is also funny and inspirational. Actually I enjoy all the WL blogs I follow. It's a great way to keep your head in the game. Best of luck!

I was just banded on Tuesday but started blogging about it during the 10 day pre-op diet.

Enjoy!
