Beginning Of Lap Band Journey!!



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am new here, and just looking for support and advice. I have my first appointment with a surgeon on 07/02. I found out today my insurance company does cover the surgery and I dont have to wait for any dieting period. Of course I still have to meet other guidelines such as a psyciatric evaluation and I still have to attend classes and meet with a dietician. The hardest thing of all is I have to lose about 10% of my weight for the surgery. So if everything goes as planned I could get my surgery in three months...I'm really excited to start this journey. I have struggled with my weight as long as I can remember and I believe I have come to a point in my life that I need to do something drastic. I also have a 2year old son and I want to be able to do everyday activities with him without feeling winded or exhausted.

      Has anyone had problems with the bariatric miltivitamin? I am struggling to get them down. If they don't make me throw up, they make me feel sick to my stomach!! Does anyone do something different when it comes to vitamins?

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
