Annual Physical Dread

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I didn't quite stick to my plan in 2011. Okay, okay, I completely jumped off the bandwagon. Now it is time to face the music. In two weeks, I will have the dreaded physical. The moment where the doctor looks at me and states that I am obese (as if I didn't notice). She will tell me that obesity is not good for my health (as if I haven't noticed the pain involved in carrying an extra 100 lbs). She will ask me to try to loose the weight (as if I am enjoying the extra arrangements required to survive being plus-sized in a skinny worshiping world).

Oh, how I wish I had sticked to the plan from last year!!! Hopefully, I have lost at least a few pounds. So I can at least tell her that I have not had a net weight gain. Although between us, I lost 30 lbs last year and gained 25.

Things will be different this year. I have a much more realistic plan and the SP family. But oh the joy I will experience in two weeks...oh the joy.

    I understand how you feel. I think it would be great just to be very honest with your doc and explain that you have a very real plan, a great support mechanism in SparkPeople, and that while you did regain some weight in 2011, you did lose and will do it again. He/she may be able to give you more encouragement than scolding with that type of conversation. Good luck with your appointment and congrats with your new commitment.
