A few people have asked me about the conference I’m attending in October.

A blurb from the web site:

ObesityHelp.com was founded in 1998 as a peer support community to help those faced with life threatening morbid obesity. By June of 1999, the site’s existence has been brought to the attention of clinicians and professionals and the organization was formalized to extend support to patients and clinicians while expanding the scope of its public outreach activities. As of January 2008, over 700,000 people have become members on the ObesityHelp web site seeking help to find a solution to their weight loss problems. Our web site has over 3,000,000 page-views a week from people looking for help.

As a member, the boards had been invaluable to me before, during and after my weight loss surgery. Sneaker Porn Diaries came about as a result of a friendship which developed out of OH (some would argue this has created a monster!!). Through the generous support of my weight loss doctor and others, I have the opportunity to attend an event that not only helped me on my weight loss journey, but also provides continued support and encouragement as I keep going.

I’m hoping to do a little networking, get some swag, and meet some of these crazy bloggers I’ve been following for almost three years (and see if we can Stuff a Bug!).
