Tuesday is your day! Just remember you are on the journey of a lifetime. Try to enjoy every minute. It may sound weird now, but know that you are cared for and prayed for here, and all too soon this will be but a memory and you will be an inspiration to someone else. I am waiting for you on the losers' bench!

I just discovered the "BMI over 50" messageboard tonight and I was reading the profiles of other women with a high BMI, like myself (72). I was supposed to have surgery on 1-30-06, but my blood pressure was too high and then I had my very first "panic attack" so the surgery was postponed and at this point I have not been rescheduled. I have been searching these message boards for people that I could relate to and can understand what it is like to walk in my shoes. I have been really struggling with depression since my surgery was cancelled and I thought interacting with my peers might give me a good shot of self confidence, so I can get back on the STICK! As I read your profile, I realized that we have a whole lot in common and we have been through a lot of the same experiences. It wasnt until I got to your most recent post that I realized that you were supposed to have surgery yesterday!!! Now, I am dying to know how things went! I hope you are resting comfortably and well on your way to the new, healthy you! When you get to feeling better, I hope to see you on the message boards. Take care! Alisa
