How do I request to get added on the Nov lap band face book? Day 2 of pre-op and I really need the support. Sitting in my office, everyone around me has food and it's all that I can smell.

Go search for Stacey Diederich-Speager (copy and paste if you want) and request her as a friend and send her a private message that you are wanting to join the group.

Then I have a post to add your surgery date so I can add it to our little calendar thing. It's a great group of people and you will love us!!

If for some reason you can't find her, go add me facebook.com/damander and I will let her know to add you!!

Simple Simple!

Btw, I have decided to blog about my journey so if any are interested, the link is lapbandwagon.blogspot.com

I doubt it's as interesting as some of the others that are doing it, but I wanted to do this for me so I can look back and reflect when I have lost the weight!

I've only made my introductory blog

Hang in there, it is very hard the first 4-5 days, and after that your body will adapt the the lifestyle of shakes, food won't seem as tempting to you. I am on my 14th day of shakes only and have my surgery tomorrow! yay! I've already lost 10 lbs just from the pre-op diet.

Congrats on getting your approval ! I am scheduled for surgery on November 7th, 2011. I am excited and might i say a bit nervous as well. I know this is a great thing , I am just worried about if i am eating right etc. i keep reading over the pre-op diet and telling myself that I am doing right but my head keeps playing games with me. I guess i am just so worried about screwing the whole thing up and not being able to have the surgery. I dont have to go to all liquid diet till this weekend. I have been on high Protein diet since the 24th. Protein Shake in the morning and lean meat and vegetable for lunch and dinner. I am just so worried about eating the wrong thing , I think I am literally starving myself to death out of worry. I will just be so glad when the surgery is over and I can start my new life on the road to a heathier , happier me! Good Luck on your surgery !!!

HELLO!!! I saw October and even December Bansters but no November...so I thought I would start the November Bansters! I called the Insurance company and I got a verbal approval. If all goes well I will be banded on November 14, 2011. Woo-hoo!! 11/11 will be the beginning of a WONDERFUL NEW LIFE!! I can't wait to do this for ME!!

:bananapartyhat: I was originally scheduled for surgery on November 17th, but my date got moved up to Noveber 3.....TOMORROW! I am so excited! I so ready for this new journey to begin, to be healthy again, to look good for my husband again, to walk without being out of breath and take pictures with my family instead of insisting on being behind the camera or behind other people in the photos. I know this tool is what I need to be happy again!

I am so thankful for this forum; I feel I am so much more prepared being able to read people's stories....both success stories and struggles.

I have sleep apnea, so I have to go in tonight for a second sleep study and when I wake up.....I will be having surgery! Anyone else having surgery tomorrow?

Hello all sorry I haven't been around lately but trying to get things done before I go in to surgery on Nov 10th. I did receive approval thru my insurance and that was the last hurdle so now I am all set to go. When I started this journey it seemed like alot of things to do to get to where I am at now. Looking back now the time has flew since I went to the first seminar on August 4th. Everything seems like a blur now and I know that sounds unrealistic. I have to be at the hospital by 6 am and surgery is 7:45 am, if all goes well I should be home by noon.

Wishing everyone a great day.

Char
