New to Blogging and Banding

So I figured after reading other's blogs it was about time I started my own. I have not been banded yet, but I'm SO ready to be!! I am required to attend 3 visits with a registered dietician and 1 appointment with the psychologist before seeing the surgeon. To date I have had 2 dietian appointments and am finished with the psychologist! A few more goals to reach by 6/23 and then on to meet with the surgeon.
I have a friend who was banded in January and she is the reason I ever considered weight loss surgery. She has lost over 90 lbs. and looks amazing!! Not only does she look great but she feels great....which is most important in my eyes.
I'm excited, scared, and still feel like it won't work for me since nothing else I have to keep reading others blogs and keep track of my friend's progress to help me with motivation until surgery. Any thoughts, words of inspiration, or hints will be greatly appreciated!!!!


  1. Best wishes to you! I hope everything goes smoothly with your journey! I am being banded on 5/27/11 and would love to keep in touch! My URL is:

    Hope to talk to you soon! :)

  2. Thanks for being my first follower! I am so jealous that you have a surgery date set! But they say "Patience is a virtue...." Blah,blah,blah! When I want something I want it NOW...I am so impatient!! I read that you have an upper respiratory infection. I hope you are feeling better in time for surgery. Keep us updated!
