hi bandedangie, I had the lapband about 11/2 years ago. to date I've lost around 70 lbs. Make sure that you follow the doctors advice for eating and drinking. The band works you just have to remember that it is a tool and not a quick fix. Keep in touch. would like to know how things are going.
Yes Angie..... do check out ALL the information about the Lapband that you can get your hands on. I would think you have made an informed decision by now though. And just the fact that you chose a practice 4 hrs away says that you want the very best.
I was banded 11 months ago and it was the best decision of my life. I have truly changed my diet and my life as a result. You get out what you put in. Healthy decisions create a healthy lifestyle. The band is not a cure all. You still have to eat right, exercise and follow the band rules! But it will make your journey easy and way easier to keep the pounds from coming back. It's not permanent and it's very flexible to your situation.
I'm excited for your surgery date! Follow the rules and stay active on the Lapband teams. There is a wealth of knowledge and support right here!

I've just celebrated my SP seven month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.
To celebrate your arrival at SP this Spring season, I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
