Any Long Island, NY Banders



Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was wanted to know if there is any Long Island, NY banders out there. I had my band placed 9/22/10 doing good so far just having a hard time with the soft mushy foods. Also feel like I am not getting enough Protein :smile2:. I've also started bike riding which I must say hasn't been easy since I am so out of shape :frown: but I am pretty sure it will get better. When it starts to get too cold out I am going to start the gym. I look forward to hearing from any Long Islanders :crying: how are things going for you and if you have any suggestions to help me along would be greatly appreciated :tt2:

Nice to hear from you all. I am from Long Beach but now I am in Uniondale. Just like all4gizmo my doctor is also Dr. Geiss. I am also thinking about getting the Wii since I don't like to work out :smile2: I am trying to find things that I like to which will help me with my weight loss.

I have fun with the Wii. It's not like you're working out and if you get bored you can just buy a different game..

I live in Howard Beach and my surgeon was Dr Vohra out of Hewlett. I actually just bought the Wii 2 weeks before surgery as well as the Wii Fit, Wii Fit Plus, Wii Sports Resort and the board.

The games will give you a light fun little workout. The Wii Board I wasnt able to use right away because it has a weight limit (I think 300 lbs). But it doesnt stop you from doing other exercises and games.

Hi there:

I am in Ronkonkoma, NY and was banded on 3/29/10. I have a suggestion for a fantastic tasting Protein Shake, called Premier Protein. It is available @ costco and tastes fantastic! Stats of shake: 1g sugar, 3g fat, 160 calories and 30g of Protein. I hope you are feeling well.

I hope you don't mind me being here, but I'm getting banded on 11/11. But the LI title caught my eye, so I thought I'd introduce myself. I live in Elmont.

Dr. Geiss is doing my surgery too. Were you pleased with him and the services in his office???

There is a very inspirational lap bander on Youtube.

I think she's from NJ but her Dr was Dr. Geiss (I think) and she has done a phenomenal job. She is one of my inspirations in my journey. Her name is Skymoon1982 check her out if you haven't already.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
