Yes! That has been one of her major topics of discussion for the past 5 years and it has also been mentioned by other doctors I went to in the past. I always dreaded the office visits and the lectures. I finally decided that I was going to work on getting off some of the weight and she has been very pleased with my progress. Makes for a nicer visit.

My cardiologist told me to lose weight or I would have to have surgery and be bedridden with my other medical problems for the rest of my life, but wouldn't help me. I was so depressed that I ended up gaining 8 more pounds, but finally got a computer, and found spark and now I'm starting to lose weight. Thank you spark and spark friends!

I never had a doctor mention my weight until the last year when I started to have a lot of problems with heartburn and a hiatal hernia. She said the best way to deal with it would be to lose some weight. Since then I gained weight... ha! Now I AM trying to lose weight which is why I'm here!
None of my previous doctors ever mentioned my being obese, by the time I got my current doctor I had lost about 70 pounds but she always talks about my weight loss every time I go in and asks how I'm doing. I ended up losing the rest of my weight while in her care.
