I went to UPMC on Tuesday to see my liver Dr. I haven't lost as much weight as I had hoped to between visits. But I have lost weight.
My Dr. was so encourageing. He said he was very pleased with my weight loss. He didn't say you should have lost more. I was so encouraged by his attitude. He told me to keep up the good work, not you should have done better in the time you had.
He said he was pleased with my blood work results taken by my Dr. here. Normal for the first time.
I told him I felt better since I had lost weight and could do more. He said that is what it is all about.
I was so encouraged by his attitude and lack of judgment on what I did not do.
I see him again in 6 months. Jan. 7, 2014. His encouraging words have helped me to know it's not about what I have not done, but what I am accomplishing .

    This is awesome. It is always great to have dr. that encourage you. We try so hard and unless people are struggling with their weight they don't understand how hard it is to lose 1 lb. I too have a good dr. that encourages me and is understanding and if I am not doing good, she ask what do we need to do, how can I help you. I hope your next visit brings you allot more good news. Keep going. I know everyday you will feel better.
