No Parade or Confetti, but it's all good!

Monday, April 22, 2013

I was at the doctor today. Just for an annual check up, no big deal. During his consultation, as he was looking over the chart he casually commented, "Okay, weight looks good." Oh, how marvelous to hear that! No lecture on my weight, no discussion about all the harm being overweight can do...nothing.
Of course, I was rather expecting confetti and balloons to drop from the ceiling, but I suppose they didn't have enough time to get that together....I expect a parade the next appointment, however!

    I think you deserve confetti and a parade, but don't you hate the fact that if you were overweight the doctor would be all up in your face about it, but all you get when you lose weight is a: "weight looks good". Where's the congratulations "I see you lost some weight; you are doing really great!" Oh well, I guess we can't expect a miracle but "nice job" would have been nice. Here's a little confetti for you...... emoticon parade to follow emoticon

    emoticon I'm so glad that you had somewhat of a "payoff" for all your hard work. I agree confetti and balloons should be mandatory when we lose weight!! Keep at it!!! emoticon

    Yup - they can be quick to point out the faults - but then forget to do a HAPPY DANCE when you come in with results.

I'm doing a happy dance for you right now. Don't feel bad that you can't see it - it's not a pretty sight - but I'm celebrating all you have achieved. It has not gone unnoticed!
