245 Pounds!

Saturday, August 24, 2013

So I'm down to 245 pounds now! I can't remember the last time I was this weight... maybe early high school/late middle school years. I can't believe I'm this small now! It feels great :)

I went to Planned Parenthood for a refill on my "mini" birth control pill and they have managed to piss me off again. Last appointment almost a year ago a woman there weighed me and had the nerve to say "are you usually this weight?" It took everything in me not to be rude to her but seriously?!? What kind of question is that? This time around I got my pills and left. When I got home I opened the bag to a leaflet on how to lose weight... seriously? I've NEVER gotten this leaflet before at the other locations I've been to. This leaflet was poorly written and in very poor taste. I can assure my friends haven't gotten this leaflet ever. A line from the leaflet " At first, try to not gain any more weight" REALLY? Duh! I've lost 40 pounds since the last appointment but I guess they didn't notice that. My next appointment in December is going to be horrible... I won't tolerate their treatment of me because of my size. I will for sure be saying something if they say anything about my weight... 2 strikes is more than enough. I have the right to feel comfortable and they certainly don't make me feel comfortable at all.

I found out that my doctor no longer works at the facility I go to :( Just when I get used to a doctor and one who supported my weight loss goals I get assigned someone new.

    Congrats on your weight loss. Ignore the rude people at PP. And if they bring it up again say "Well I am down X amount of lbs in the last year.

    As much as I love PP and their mission, this is what happens when you go to a clinic environent instead of building a relationship with a primary care office. One who actually has records and reads them before (or at least during) the appointment to know how you are doing. But please - dont bite their heads off about the weightloss thing. They dont know how much you have lost. All they know is that you are still obese according to their charts. They did a brave thing by speaking up and are truly advocating for your health. The person who slipped that pamphlet into your bag is really looking out for the WHOLE YOU. and isnt just rotely writing a prescription.

    Incidentally - you are doing AMAZING with your weightloss. Just remember - you are in this for a lifetime. Make sure the changes you make are sustainable so you can keep it off.

    congrats on your weight loss. I can not believe how bad planned parenthood is treating you.. They should have looked at your chart and praised you not put you down. I for one of many are very proud of your accomplishment.
