Congratulations on your upcoming surgery and beginning you new life on the losing side. Right now you are probably riding a rollercoaster of emotions - excited, nervous, scared.... Take time over the next few days to center yourself, keep your mind on other things rather than on surgery, and keep yourself busy. You will find that your big day will be here in no time and you will be emotionally prepared and calm for your big adventure. Good luck and welcome to your new life.

Hi Tina! Big congratulations on your surgery date! I bet you are so excited! Just hang in there and try to be patient! Donít worry if you are nervous, scared, excited or go through a thousand different emotions. This is all normal, so go with the flow! Thereís really nothing you can do with all those feelings surfacing. You may start to doubt yourself and question your decision to have surgery. Just about everyone has had this happen to them. Youíre making a decision to have a better quality of life and YOU deserve it!! That gut feeling or that little voice inside lets you know that youíre doing the right thing! Remember that weíre all family here and weíre ready to give you our support, lend an ear and not judge. You know you can always come here and get a dose of confidence and good will! There are lots of us who have had surgery and are in your corner rooting for you!! I just wanted you to know that I was thinking about you today and that you are in my thoughts and prayers for a successful, problem-free surgery and recovery. Iím so happy for you. Soon you will be on the other side and will join the ranks of the losers. Get ready for your life to change forever. Wishing you much success in your weight-loss journey. Hugs to you today. God bless, DI from NJ Ė Lap RNY, 12/09/03 -52 lbs ~In Loving Memory of Momma Angel~ — Diane B.

Congratulations on your surgery date! I have some Zen Wisdom for you - Nothing exists but momentarily...One thing flows into another...observe things as they are, let everything go as it goes. This is to put everything under control in its widest sense. --- May God keep you close to his side as you travel your new journey. You will have ups and downs. You can always turn to us, your AMOS family, we will give support, comfort and encouragement. You will find this will be the best thing you could ever have done for yourself as well as your family. I know that was true for me. Keep us posted when you reach the "other" side. I pray for a speedy and easy recovery for you. Donít forget to update your profile at least monthly. We all like to see how we are doing!!! Make sure you take pictures. Itís great to see the new you emerge!!! Not to mention the look on YOUR face when you look at those pictures and compare them in a few months! Itíll be a BIG WOW!!! Please remember too, that this is a *tool* to use. Make sure you use it wisely. The first year itís pretty easy, after that Iíve been hearing (Iím not speaking from experience as Iím not a year out yet) that it gets increasingly difficult. Choose the right foods and measurements wisely! Good luck and God Bless!!! RNY 10/31/03 down 107 poundsĖ IíM IN THE CENTURY CLUB!!!
