Pre – Op Reasons of reminder

I was reading a post/suggestion today from the  www.obesityhelp.com  website suggesting to make a list to remind myself why I am taking this big step to do the weight loss surgery on January 8, 2014. The plan is to look back at this list 8 months from now and to be reminded of how my life is going to improve! 

Here goes…

• Arthritic pain in my hip and knees

• Sleep apnea

• Poor Hygiene

• Low Social life

• Low sex drive

• Feeling ugly

• Poor mobility

• Low energy

• Gastric reflux

• Osteoarthritis

• Incontinence due to excess weight

• Increased longevity of life

• Depression

• Not being able to shop in ‘regular’ shops for clothes

• Feeling singled out/different

• Low self-esteem

• Not having relationships/social life due to poor self-image

• Physical and psychological factors of obesity that are robbing me of my basic quality of life.
