Yes. She said "we could both benefit from losing some weight" just to be polite but she was right and I would have been very ok with it if she just said it to my face. I know very well how excess weight make my health issues and pains worse.

I'm a retired nurse practitioner and only one of my doctors has ever said anything about my weight. It may be because I was skinny (125) when I first started to see her but I see something wrong with any doctor not discussing the risks of obesity with any patient.

Yes and frequently (you'd think I'd get my head out of my a.. and listen). He explicitly said he did not want me to go on a diet but rather adapt and adhere to a life style change. He's also not a fan of the BMI standard set by the government, his main focus is to get me at a healthy weight I can maintain.

Who would like to feel offended nobody even i , the same. But if you are overweight obese i think is good to have someone speak the truth. Most of the people i am around they don't want to hurt me and i can never like change because i can't figure where i am doing mistakes.

When I was 9 the doctor put me on a strict diet. Made a huge fuss. Said some very rude things. I wasn't that over weight either.

As an adult, and being morbidly obese it can come up. But they are way more polite. They acknowledge the difficulty.

Then again, I'd fire a pediatrician if they talked to my child the way mine talked to my brother and I.

Sometimes they frame it in a question. To see if it's something I want to talk about.

I quit going to a doctor in the 1990's who told me I'd be so much prettier if I would loose 20 pounds.

A few have - mostly in not very helpful ways, and mostly a long time ago. More recently, I've found more doctors are sensitive to the fact that weight is only part of the picture and for many people can keep them from seeing the doctor to deal with other problems (because they fear another lecture about their weight -- as if they had forgotten they were fat!)

Having previously been pretty significantly overweight, it is easy for me to gain weight back if I'm not careful, so it is something that I raise with my doctors now, to let them know I am trying to manage my now lower weight. It was difficult during my fertility treatments to do so, particularly because I was too old to take much of a break in between treatments to lose the weight I gained due to the treatments (between 2013 and this past May when my second son was born, I had 6 IVF cycles total, 4 miscarriages, and two frozen embryo transfers that resulted in two healthy pregnancies and two healthy little boys). So I started my successful pregnancies at a higher weight than I wanted to be at - but my OB was very unconcerned about that, or about my (to me) high weight gain during pregnancy (about 45 pounds each time, although I lost a lot in between the two pregnancies). We talked a bit about how to keep the gains down, but he said my gains were appropriate and honestly the only lectures I got were the prenatal visits where I DIDN'T gain weight. (Note that I didn't have gestational diabetes or high blood pressure -- which might have caused him to be more concerned about weight/diet.) He didn't lecture me at my 6-week postpartum visit either (where I'd only lost minimal weight since the birth) - though he was encouraging of my plan to go re-start my diet and work with my weight maintenance doctor again.

I'd say he gave the right amount of attention to the issue -- his focus was where it should be - on getting me and my babies through my pregnancies safely.

I contrast that to an OB/GYN I had about 20 years ago who lit into me about my weight very unkindly, and when I returned the next year for a checkup (god knows why, other than that he was located next to my office and took my insurance), having lost a significant amount of weight since the previous visit, he just commented "did you finally stop eating?" Jerk. I really should have told him off, but I was much less good at standing up for myself then....

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

Deep down you know exactly what you’re capable of. There’s even moments where you get a glimpse of all the potential you have. You can get there. You must be willing to sacrifice the habits, the things, the situations that are standing in the way of your success. Never Stop!
