I needed a little motivation today as I get ready for my upcoming surgery. Here are some of my reasons, help me make the list longer by telling me yours.

1. Want to see my feet again.
2. Want to shop in regular clothes section not "Womans World"
3. Want to take some of the wear and tear off my poor joints
4. Want to chase my grandson and be able to catch him
5. Want to fly in a plane without having to ask for extension to seat belt
6. Want to come off diabetic meds, hypertension meds, high blood
pressure meds
7. Take the stairs without losing my breath
8. Want to be skinner than my mother...LOL
9. Want to get rid of all my "fat clothes" and not have to hold on to them
for just in case
10.Want to live a longer healthier life.

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

In addition to some of yours

1. Cross my legs
2. Ride in an amusement park ride with my kids
3. Go to the beach wearing a cute bathing suit without having to cover it with shorts and a t shirt


I am sure there are more but that's what is popping in my head.

BTW - I have to take a flight out for my job on next Tuesday, I have my own seatbelt extender, I am going to bring it but I am hoping I don't need it.

I've been wanting to do this... now I have time

Reasons I wanted WLS: (in no particular order)

1. To be able to walk without my feet hurting!
2. To stop knocking stuff over with my butt.
3. To stop having to turn sideways all the time when going through a tight spot.

4. To help make sure I'm there when my kids graduate school.
5. To help make sure I'm there to see my kids get married and have kids.
6. So I can ride rollercoasters again!!!!!
7. So I can fit into seats at the movies, concerts, ballgames, airplanes, etc.
8. To make *ahem* whoopee more interesting!
9. To make me more interesting to my husband!!!!
10. So I can sit at a picnic bench easily.
11. So I can stop people from making rude comments, stares, etc.
12. To set a better example for my kids.

I guess my main reason for the WLS was so everyday i didnt live in fear of a heart attack or stroke.
BEFORE my surgery, just going up the stairs in my home made me huff and puff and be tired! that was scary!

I second to all of those including the diabetes, High BP, & High cholesterol, sleep apnea, etc. health reasons.
But also
to not die FAT and be remembered that way
to feel good about myself
to play with my grandchildren and see them grow up
to give my husband what my exhusband had and threw away (can't get younger but can get more sexy and attractive)
to quit using so much powder in the creases
be able to sit in a booth at a restaurant
to be able to get in the boat without being clumsy and scaring my husband & myself
to quit visiting the Dr. on an almost weekly basis
to buy clothes because I like them, not just because they fit
to get rid of 8 huge containers of "maybe I will need these clothes"
I could go on forever I think. A new life that I can enjoy is the main reason I want WLS. Mattie
