241.4 lbs!!!! :)

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Not sure if it's stress related or if I just happened to all of a sudden gained the ability to lose 2 pounds in 3 days but some how I did. I'm now 241.4 pounds! I think it might be a combination of stress and just eating better/walking more. I hope I don't start losing like this all the time. I know the point is to lose weight but I want to do it slow and steady because it's healthier, easier to keep the weight off, and it will help with my skin's ability to "snap" back into place.

I'm happy I lost 2 pounds but it just worries me because it's hard for me to lose multiple pounds per week and here I lost 2 pounds in less than half a week... My doctor that just left the facility I go to would have had a field day with this haha. He always harped on me not to lose the weight too fast and got on me a little bit when I had lost 7 pounds between visits and it was only a short time between appointments. I have a doctor appointment coming up soon with a new doctor whom I've never met before. I hope they don't get on me for my weight... I've had so many doctors like that and talk down to you and really make you feel small and worthless just because of being overweight. One doctor came out and said "you're fat, a fat woman who will die very soon." I'm sure it was a "scare" tactic but very poorly done.

    Congratulations! It seems like everyone commenting is in consensus that your doctors were jerks. I talked to multiple doctors before finally settling on the one I have now and it was worth the search. Don't worry too much about the sudden weight loss and stay focused on you goal. emoticon

    Congrats on the loss!

I wouldn't worry too much about the dramatic loss just yet. Weight can fluctuate short term due to lots of factors. Now, if it happens 3 or 4 weeks in a row...

I agree with GARDENQE2 - sounds like you've had more than one doctor with NO people skills and no understanding of what a tough task it is to lose weight. Hope your new doctor's a winner who acknowledges what you've achieved.

    Congratulations on your weight loss! What a jerk that doctor was, scare tactic or not, making people feel like crap is not the way to go. Keep pushing and you can do it! emoticon

    Sorry you have had such unpleasant doctors!
For me, losing weight hasn't been a smooth slope down, but more like a staircase. I lose 2 lbs, stay at that level for a while then lose a couple more.
It seems to me that you just took a step down. You may have a little while before your next loss!
Best wishes on your journey!
