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.

  1. Hi Babe!

    Ik vind het zo ontzettend dapper van je, dat je operatie gaat doen, en dat je deze analyse er tegenaan gooit. Het is wel heel goed om te doen, zo’n lijstje maken. En echt, als al de pijn van de operatie geleidelijk wegebt, en jij merkt dat de kilo’s er af gaan, zul je je zoveel beter gaan voelen…Ik houd je via je blog in de gaten. En denk heel veel aan je, ook al reageer ik niet altijd op posts op FB. Lieve groeten uit een prachtig, herfstig Amsterdam! xxxMarianne
