Hello All, I am new to this site, I came over from Obesityhelp.com. I heard this site was helpful. There are not too many "Bandsters" on that Particular site. I am thankful I found this site.

Anyhow, Today I went to the healthfood store and purchased, Protein drinks and Vitamins. Any suggestions on the inventory I have.

I have purchased, the Atkins drinks, Spiru-tein Protein energy meals, Go Lean by Kashi Drinks, and some various stuff. I do know I will be on Broths and oatmeals, but does anyone recommend anything else. Some Recipies for Juices would be helpfull.

Your input helps tremendously.

I am from Long Island also. Where are you getting your band done? Do you belong to the Yahoo Group, L.I. Banders? There are a great bunch of people there and we get together once a month. I had my band put in on Sept. 2nd at Syosset Hosp. and I am feeling better every day.

Good Luck on your journey!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
