Why so negative?!?!

Friday, July 09, 2010

As most of you already know Ive lost 75 lbs since the birth of my daughter, and most of the time when I talk to people they are very happy for me and super supportive. But there are the few people that just cant seem to be happy for me. My doctor is a perfect example, I took my daughter in for a check because she had been sick. When my doctor walks in he stops dead in his tracks and starts lecturing me that I need to stop loosing weight! I just don't understand, sure I'm significantly smaller than I was 2 years ago but now I'm healthy, happy, have more energy. I would think that a doctor of all people would be happy that I'm HEALTHY!! I feel like if I would not have taken the initiative and lost all the weight he would be harping on me to get in shape!!

Id love to hear how others deal with these type of situations.

    I agree with ARMSPORTS. Make sure you are within your healthy weight range. It sounds weird to say, but I ended up losing too much weight and doctor asked me to gain a few pounds. I hated the thought at first. But I ended up gaining the weight through muscle and toning up and I feel much better.

    In the case of your doctor, his intentions might have been good even if his "bedside manner" wasn't. Could he be concerned that you have lost too much weight and it could be compromising your health? Is he under the impression that you have lost the weight in an unhealthy way? I would have an open discussion with him about this for two reasons. One, it is obviously bothering you. Two, he is a health professional and someone you trust so it would be good to know what his medical opinion is. He may be genuine in his concern but just expressing himself in a very bad way.

    Just my .02. Good luck!
