January 2013 Bandsters Unite



Recommended Posts

Happy New Year from Germany! To those like me who have January 2013 dates to be banded...my prayers to you for a successful surgery and a new YOU!

For those waiting on approvals or just to make up your mind...YOU WILL GET THERE...JUST HOLD ON. I have patience, but truly learned patience waiting on those little green people at the insurance company to say YES!

Speak positive, stay positive, be positive. If you know God...PRAY. He will see each of you thru this journey. I've read many posts and I have laughed, cried, gotten mad, sympatized and rejoiced with many of you through your expressions on LBT. And you have encouraged me to continue to move forward toward my goal.

Success in 2013 to each of you.

:-)

Yay January 2013! My journey started in October so this actually seems like a whirlwind for me. Luckily had been thinking about it for a long time before. My date is January 9, and I'm super excited and nervous. I hadn't really thought about all the steps of this journey until recently: pre-op, op, post-op, fills, losing, and, finally, maintenance. It all seemed so impossible--I kept wondering if I could even lose weight, or if there was no way I could ever be thinner (just paranoia I know). But now, on day 7 of my pre-op diet I'm down 8.8 pounds, which seems like a miracle. And now I know I can do it because I am. And that certainty in myself a bigger gift than the weight loss. Being able to believe myself is what will get me through all the ups and downs this journey will have.

Good luck to us all. 2013 is our year!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
