Doctor, have I got news for you!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Recently I went for my annual woman's checkup. My gynecologist gave me the all clear and said, "See you next year." I mentioned that I hoped by the next time I saw him I would have reduced my weight back to a normal level again.

He said, "You won't be able to lose weight. I told my wife, "Once you reach this age, and the pounds go on, they're not coming off again."

Resisting the urge to slap him for discouraging his poor wife that way, much less me, I just smiled and waved goodbye.

Oh, boy, I just can't wait until I see him next year! Might just have to remind him there's no such thing as impossible -- the very word itself says, "I'm possible!"

    Thanks a lot Helpy Helperton!

Your doc needs a seminar in positive thinking!

You can do it and don't let anyone tell you any differently!

    That doctor sounds like an idiot. I wonder what medical book he got his information from.

I'm proud of you for not slapping him!

Next year... emoticon

    Wow, maybe time to find a new doctor. A doctor with a grain of good sense would have been encouraging to you. Congrats, keep going and make him eat his words next year!!

    How horrible that is to say to you! I agree that as I have gotten older the weight was more difficult to come off, but it is possible! I look forward to your blog next year!
