Preparing to be in the spot light !

Mar 02, 2009

Hello OH family , Cory here. This time without my wife typing for me.
I really appreciate all of you who has expressed your concern and support.
Your individual stories have empowered me to move full speed ahead toward my life changing journey (A positive one of course).
I know my wife has told you all a little about me , but allow me to give you all a little more.
I'm 39 years old (soon to be 40) and I have struggled with my weight for quite some time. I'm 6ft tall and weigh 472lbs (I lost 7lbs in the last 2 weeks on my liquid diet I was 479).
I am a bit scared going in , due to the fact that they'll  be putting me to sleep (never experienced that before). I'm also very excited about finally taking control of my life.
I recently got married to my loving ANGEL and look forward to spending many , many years with her. We have alot of dreams that we would like to share with one another. Alot of you talked about having pain after surgery and to be honest...... the sound of that rattled my nerves.
At the same time, the courage you displayed in your testimonials calmed my nerves and gave me comfort. For that I say THANKS!
I have two weeks to go until I travel down my road to being on the LOSING team.
My surgery date is March 16th. Keep me in your prayers and I'll keep you updated on my progress as I am encouraged by yours.
Thanks again.
