My doctor has been treating me and not mentioning my weight. He is not one of those doctors who blames everything on my weight. But.. he has not been very helpful to me either--I mean helpful about the weight. Once he said when I am ready , I will lose the weight. And one of our visits he counseled me. He said just cutting 500 calories a day would result in 1 lb. loss each week. But he had no ideas about how cravings made it impossible to do what he asked.
The above article seems like a much more helpful approach.
It starts a dialogue but is not blaming. I can see where it might lead to a real understanding of my problem. It shows respect for me.
