Today I go for my annual gynocologist visit. That's not what I'm dreading though. I really don't mind it too much... I mean, it's awkward to spread 'em for a stranger, but it's over pretty quickly, so I don't mind.
What I do dread though, is that every time I go to the gyno, I get hassled about my weight. Let me emphasize two things. 1)I know I'm overweight. 2)I'm working on it.
I know that they're just doing their job as doctors to encourage their patients to be healthy, but it's just such a sensitive subject for me. It's even happened to me before when I've gone in to the doctor b/c of a COLD... the doctor wanted to discuss my obesity. Well I wanted to discuss his bad breath, but I kept my mouth shut, so why doesn't it work both ways?
I do have some "ammo" so to speak though, because the last time I was at the doctor was in May or June, and I weighed about 20 pounds more... so I at least have some evidence that I have made progress. Unfortunately compared to a year ago, I am about 20 pounds heavier... so I'm sure that will come up. Not much I can do about the past though, I just have to continue to do what I'm doing in the present so that I can meet my goal in the future.
