I had an annual visit to one of my many doctors, and he did a quick calculation when he saw my chart. He praised me for my weight loss from a year ago to the day. Sure made my day! There is a different doctor I need to go to in a few months; it would be almost a year and a half since my last visit to him. He is the one who told me I have to lose loads of weight "or else" I would be heading down the path to a host of medical problems. It will be interesting to see how he reacts. Problem is he sees tons of patients assembly line fashion, and most of the time he spends with me is sitting down looking at my records. He confused me with someone last time and asked me how I was recovering from my heart surgery. I never had heart problems or surgery, for sure! I think there is an excellent chance that he will not even compare my weigh ins. Anyone else have a doctor like this? I would love to get a better one, but it is almost impossible to find one and I have had worse in the past.
