I wish you a very speedy recovery, and more then that I wish for you to get all of the happiness you deserve from this courageous decision.
Hold your head high, you have broken the bonds of pain that have kept you down and have risen above that in order to make your life better. That is a choice not all have the courage to make.
And for those of us that have not yet arrived at our date...you are an inspiration.

Dea, congratulations on your upcoming date with the surgeon. Even if along the way you encounter a few bumps in the road; remember, getting to the final destination is definitely worth the ride. May God's hand be upon you and your surgical team. 5/5/03 276/141.5/130 in my dreams
Hi Dea! Big congratulations on your surgery date! I bet you are so excited! Just hang in there and try to be patient! Don’t worry if you are nervous, scared, excited or go through a thousand different emotions. This is all normal, so go with the flow! There’s 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. You’re 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 you’re doing the right thing! Remember that we’re all family here and we’re 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. I’m 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.
