well Eric.. I noticed that you haven't been thanked for a few months.. at least not on your support page, so I thought I would pay it forward. Thank YOU for all your hard work and dedication in assisting soo many people in acquiring a more healthy and fulfilling life... including my own!! I have been a member on OH since 06/30/03 and I'm always inspired by other member's stories. I have made my home on the SINGLES BOARD.. and have met people there that are now considered family. Thank YOU and the staff for giving all of us a place to come and socialize and be supportive of each other. I hope that life is always good to you... — RHONDA FROM KY

And I want you to know that it is appreciated ~~ Thanks again Eric for all you have done!! (((((hugs))))) — [Anonymous]

Eric, I just wanted to thank you for creating this website for me and for all of those who need the love and kind support of others going through the issues of Morbid obesity. I cannot tell you how much this site has helped me get through this journey. I have my suregery scheduled in less than 2 weeks and having my online journal here has been such a tremendous help for me. Whether people read it or not, I have felt so much better putting my thoughts into words. I wish I could tell the world about your site. I know how much it has meant to me. By the way, your photo does not show up in your profile. Would love to see what you look like. Tiger (Renee) — Tiger Lover

Dear Eric, This is the first time I visited your website, and I feel some shame in having taken so long to find out about the person behind all the thoughtful emails you take the time to send to all your members. Not to mention this fantastic website! I just want to say that you are a beautiful human being, and on behalf of myself and any one who may not have taken the time to post, but may have wanted to, we Thank God for your Blessed Presence. I mean this sincerely from the top and bottom of my heart and soul. You have touched so many in a way that words can never express. Your kindness, caring, and take action attitude should never be taken for granted (even though I am guilty of doing just that). May God continue to Bless you and us! Peace and Love, Barbara P. — Turiya7

Thanks for creating this site! Finding this site has changed my life! Wow! — Trisha
|11/14/2003 08:44 AM|
I had to find out who created this web site.And it is you Eric Klien! My feeble words cannot express the gratitude that I, as well as countless others feel for you and your staff. It took a very unselfish person to see the need of so many people, from so many different walks of life. It also say's you do'nt have an angel? This would be incorrect. You have them all over the world my friend. Eric, you will never know, this side of heaven how many lives you have touched and changed. I simply say,Thank you! Vicky Sanders — Vicky L.
|11/12/2003 01:07 PM|
Eric.. Thanks so much for all you do! The new chat room is great and all the effort you have put into it is just amazing! As always, you are so involved in the website and I just wanted to let you know that as one of the original members (I too remember when we had less than 1000 members!), I have to say it keeps getting better and better! I couldn't have done so well without the support of you guys! Many hugs, Kathie in Hawaii (Open RNY 08/07/02..Down 172 Pounds!) — KathieInHawaii

What a wonderful tool this is... Original Post by Joyce Z at 8:59 AM PST on 10/24/2003 Buffalo, NY - RNY (06/17/2003) I have to say that I could not be happier with this tool. I haven't felt this good in years. My surgery took place June 17, 2003 with Dr. O'Malley in Rochester, NY. I have lost 68 pounds and have this new energy. I seem to be doing better with each passing day, learning and adjusting and trying to take advantage of this great opportunity to be healthy again. I have stopped the grazing and only eat my meals and no snacking, getting in my protein shake (pro score 100) and vitamins. I started really exercising this week and feeling even better, having more energy. Gone are the days of naps after work because I was so tired from the walk from my office to the car (one city block). I have this new love of life and want to spend as much time as I can with friends and family instead of my old friend "the couch" oh yes and "the tv". What I do find myself doing now when the food doesn't taste so great, I stop eating it, I no longer devour food I don't like. I do have to remind myself that I don't have to eat everyting on my plate and shouldn't, I read where some people only 2 or 3 oz. and I should probably cute back on quantity even if it is only good food I am eating. The friends I have made from my local support group have been godsends, they have given so much support I cannot thank them enough (Sherry Wittlinger). I so appreciate all the help I have received from Susan Maria and Sharon Neva and so many others, for answering my questions and giving advice, I cannot thank you all enough, and thank you Momma Angel for doing what we all should be doing but like myself, don't . And to Eric, you alone are a godsend, change the layout of the site everyday and I wouldn't care, I am just so happy that this one exists. To all of those who work so hard to make this site what it is, thank you, because of everyone, I will succeed in this journey and life will just keep getting better. God Bless and thank you all. I have submitted my pic and it should show up soon. — Joycez

Eric, thanks for finding this site, you have no idea what OH means to me, thank you from the bottom of my heart!! — Marilyn R.
|10/16/2003 10:38 PM|
Eric, thank you for this wonderful site. I had Lap-RNY, September 16th and I depended on this site to get me through all of those days before. I didn't have a computer and God belssed me with one in June of this year and it was just in time to find OH. I count on you guys to be there for me through the rest of my journey. May God Bless you and keep you in His loving care. — ladyboo

Hi Eric I justed wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this website. It has saved my life. I'm scheduled to have WLS on 10/22/03 and I don't know what I would have done without this site. I have been able to review hundreds of profiles and information that have convince me that I am doing the right thing. I thank you once again and I know my two boys thank you as well because you have actually returned their mother to them. You see this site has given me alot of hope and it is because of this hope that I have been able to take the steps I have taken towards WLS. Words can never return what your site has given me. When I have recovered from my surgery I look forward to getting involved with this site and try to give back what has been given to me so freely. HUGS — Mildred M.
|08/07/2003 01:27 AM|
Hi Eric :) Just wanting to thank you so for developing and overseeing ObesityHelp.com! It is truly a WONDERFUL site, and is what allowed me to start my WLS journey. Being able to learn of others in same situation as me, and see them succeed with the surgery, allowed me to realize that perhaps there was a way out of the prison of morbid (or in my case, super morbid) obesity. Much thanks from a neighbor in Lake Forest :) Caroline — CarolineAnnMartin

Hi Eric, Thanks for the support. I am so excited. I read up on your profile. What an awesome guy you are to not only recognize the needs of others, but to do something about it. This website is awesome. I have not updated my profile lately, but I'm still in the waiting phase. As soon as I get my surgery, I will do alot of updating. I've got some papers to take to my physician about this web-site. I will see Dr. Daryl Stewart on June 3 for my pre-op and will give it to him then. It thrills my soul to meet someone with so much love and compassion. The world needs alot more Eric Kleins' in it as far as I'm concerned. I love to meet people with huge, caring, compassionate hearts. Have I mentioned that your an awesome guy. OK, I'll stop before your head starts swelling (just teasing). So nice to meet you, Love Amber — help

Hi Eric, Some of the members from AMOS that live in Southern California are planning to get together for lunch on Saturday, 5/31 at Mimi's in Oceanside. I would love for you to join us. Please let me know if you are interested. I'm setting up the specifics. Thanks for all you've done for the members of AMOS who find our website to be an invaluable source of support and strength. warm regards, Janet — [Anonymous]

Wow! How good it was to see your face on the message board tonight. God bless you for starting this AWESOME Web-site. It's been my main web-surfing for over a year. The only thing I go into daily! Thank you so very, very much!!! YOU DO ROCK!!! Des's date of surgery 3/13/2002 Pre-op weight =316#'s, current weight on 5/6/2003 = 174#'s , -142#'s — Desiree R.
|05/02/2003 04:21 PM|
Eric, Just wanted to say thanks for this wonderful website, to see how others have come along so beautifully brings hope to all those wishing to have the surgery done. What a wealth of useful information, I bought the weight loss book by Barbara Thompson but don't think I learned much because I had done so much reading off this site. I expected to see you also had a prior issue w/weight but I was touched by the fact you didn't. I work as an alarm monitor over the phone and I have men flirt with me and ask me out but I know 1 glimpse of me would have sent them running. I guess what I am trying to say is thanks for having a kind heart and not discriminating against your fellow man. For this, may God bless you in all your efforts. — Jackie B.
|03/24/2003 06:28 PM|
Eric~~Thank you so much for sending me this post. Thank you for the prayers. Thank you for giving out your information. I really enjoy reading it. Congratulations on your weight loss. God bless you! Lori :o) — pandamom3

Eric, I love your site, it has pulled me out of many dark places in the last year or so. I went from skimming profiles, to looking up surgeons, to researching procedures, and now as a post op I come here everyday, just to get perspective on what's happening to me. I luv ya for all the help you provided to me, you are truly a hero. :) — [Anonymous]
|01/29/2003 07:33 AM|
HI Eric, How are you doing? Good I hope.I have tried to e-mail you but it will not go through something about your address. Please e-mail me at email@example.com thank you 1-28-03 — lori H.
|08/19/2002 06:15 PM|
Hi Eric, Doing pretty good here, found another Dr that will accept my Insurance, now it's just a waiting thing to get in for my consult (October 8th) Liv-Lite contacted me, I'm praying with their help that I will get approved the FIRST TIME. Again I have to tell you this site is Awesome and your are an Awesome man that gives and cares so much. You have helped so many people. I'm also having a blast and enjoy helping in "sprucing up" some of the profiles! *I think I've done 54 now* Thankyou and Sheri Carver for inviting me to join the HTML team! Hugs and prayer always! — Moma V.

Hi Eric, I too live in California, in Rowland Heights. I drive through Mission Viejo from time to time. Anyways, Obesityhelp.com has been a God sent to me when my emotions on surgery were up and down. You are a very gifted and caring individual and have touched many lives in a positive way with your gifts in creating this site. I wish you many blessings in you career and in life. Hugs-Debbie Rodriguez — debbie R.
|08/19/2002 04:49 PM|
Eric Thank you for building the best web site in the history of medicine. You have opened up a community of people that normally would not be able to be in contact with each other. You are a wonderful person. I know this because you did not have to take up our cause. You obviously don't have a issue with weight but yet you opened your heart to us and your brain to. Thank you for being the caring person you are and the intelligent person you are also. May you have a wonderful and rich life. Love, Mary Ray — Mary R.
|08/11/2002 06:53 PM|
Thank you Eric, without this site I would not have had the courage to check out all the resources that you provide. Thanks to you I am now on the other side, the LOSING side, which is the winning side for me. Love Ya Diane — dianesloop
|07/14/2002 09:32 AM|
Thank you Eric for establishing this site, it and YOU have been a Godsend for many people. I am still pre-op *sigh* My initial consult got cancelled yet again because of the Dr. moving out of state. But I know because of all the wonderful people on this site, and their valuable information I will be able to find another Dr. near that will accept my insurance. I have another *idea* I want to talk to you about, but I will mail you with it. :) Prayers and hugs to a super guy — Moma V.
|07/13/2002 06:51 PM|
I would just like to thank you for establishing this site. I dont know what I would do without the love and support from all the people on here. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!! — Jennaluvsnelson

Happy Birthday to ObesityHelp founder, Eric Klein. Thank you soooo much for creating this wonderful site which has become a lifeline and inspiration to so many people. I hope you know how much this site has meant to so many people! May your life be rich and fulfilling and may you be blessed with all love you have passed on to us. Folks, I think a fitting tribute to Eric would be to get out your checkbooks or credit cards and send in a donation to ObesityHelp.com. You don't have to send a huge contribution, I'm sure every dollar would be appreciated. This site has given us so much, lets give a little back! As a fringe benefit, you'll get a cool little flashy star next to your name. *grin* — kylakae
