  1. YOU SHOULD BE SOOOO PROUD OF YOURSELF...THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR PHOTOS! IT IS AN INSPIRATION FOR ALL OF US JUST A FEW MONTHS OUT FROM OUR BANDS. >
  2. Hi Roger! My trip home went OK...I felt a little swollen after having to sit for so many hours...walking, walking, walking is really the key to comfort after this surgery isn't it?! Today I'm home and enjoying being here...aspirin is all I'm taking occasionally for that achey feeling. There is no and hasn't been any real pain. Thank you for being so pleasant and encouraging at OCC! I met so many terrific people...staff and patients included. Have a great weekend! Smiles, Penny
  3. Hi Roger...(Gee that's my husband's name too!) I will keep an eye out for you...good luck with all your care! Penny :-h
  4. Hi Candy! I'm so glad you answered...I will definitely watch for you! Actually I will arrive at the hotel the 24th so you will probably be at the Center by then. I will say a prayer that your day goes smoothly and comfortably! Smiles, Penny
  5. I'm seven days from my band! Is anyone using the form coming up on this date too? My emotions are running high ... excitement, nervousness, and pride! I am proud that I'm doing this for myself and my health. Thanks to all of you who share on the forum...it makes this experience less lonely and scary!
  6. Thanks for the welcome, Donna! Gee your profile info looks great! Congrats on all your weight loss. I hope I enjoy the same success. I am starting out at 215, but down already to 211. I started using the liquid diet a little early. My height is 5'-6" and my BMI 34.7. I have seen a few random comments during my research that says the under 35 BMI's can expect slower loss. Have you or anyone else out there heard this? I will watch for your thoughts .... have a smiley day!
  7. I am new to Lap Band Forum as of today... my surgery is scheduled for September 24th and the researching and decision-making has been quite a journey in itself. I recently received my copy of Dr. Ortiz's book and it is already looking worn! I am fortunate to have the most supportive husband cheering me on. I do struggle with some embarrassment issues and have not shared my plans with another living soul. I guess I fear their judgement...I must work on my head issues as well as my body issues, right? I am also a military mom and awaiting the safe return of my son from Iraq...(any military family members out there? I'd love to hear from you.) My military Mom stress has found me too often in front of the fridge! I see the forum as being a terrific pre-op and post-op resource. I'm impressed with the stories, experiences and useful practical info you all contribute. So...I guess this is my introduction to you! I look forward to checking in daily... :-h
  8. Hi Nimits! I feel for you and understand your apprehension...I am scheduled for September 24th surgery and experiencing alot of nervousness as the date approaches. But, also my conviction gets stronger each day that I am doing a good thing for myself and my health. I can't give you any words of wisdom as my day is coming, but I can wish you a fast recovery and my support. (What a wonderful brother you must have!) Smiles, newpenny
