We just got this email and are putting together a team to support this endeavor. We will also be blogging about these issues from time to time:
"I just have a quick request. I unfortunately am not too computer savvy-somewhat of a 'cyber-virgin' as I like to say, but I recently thought it would be nice to share and hear from others who have been morbidly obese and share their experiences about expectations, social and otherwise. On April 18th, 2008 I will celebrate if you will, my 31st year having lost around two hundred lbs. At 5'4, I tipped the scales at, as close as I could tell, (since I broke my scale trying to see if I could move the needle past the 350lb.limit) four hundred lbs.or thereabouts. I just want to know if there is an organization or group that I can chat with about the success and challenges after obesity. I've spent the better part of an hour on my computer and get page after page of ad's for surgery and weight-loss programs, etc. Any help in this matter is appreciated!"
