The number one thing I hope to accomplish, by losing weight, is improving my health.  I’ve had issues with blood pressure, and joints, all because of the weight.  A 35 year old woman should not feel like she’s 100 years old.  My body is telling me to do something about the excess weight and that’s what I plan to do.  Pursuing the weight loss surgery is my way of ending the beating my body is taking on a day to day basis.   Losing weight will enable me to live longer so I can be around for my husband and children.  It’s hard to play and participate in their activities.  It would be so much easier if the weight was gone.  I would have the energy and the stamina to keep up with my family.  I have to be around to see my daughters get married someday and have their own children.  The odds of that are shortened with each pound I fail to lose.This will also help me in the process of rebuilding my self esteem.  I’ve noticed a slow decline in my self- image in relevance to the incline of the scale.  I think looking good goes hand in hand with feeling good on so many levels.  When you start dropping weight, and physically feel better, you start to look better.  I believe my outside would then start to match the inside.  Shopping for clothes used to be a fun experience for me.  I know that may sound unimportant to some, but I would love to get that joy back.  Shopping for clothes has become a chore I now dread and try to avoid at all costs.  Dropping even one or two sizes would be such a great feeling. I know weight loss surgery isn’t a panacea, but it’s the most important tool in my weight loss battle.  I think it will give me the one thing I need to allow me to succeed in this long and never ending journey.
