wow, I wouldn’t go back to that doctor again!  For your height that weight doesn’t seem at all overweight.  You should have told her to go [email protected]#$ herself.

That’s just horrible! I’m 5″10 and weigh a lot more than 150! That’s a great weight for your height. What did you say when she said that? I would have been hurt too. Just remember that SHE is the nutty one…

I know that 150 is definately a healthy weight for 5’10”..sorry you had to hear her crap! Can you try to get a recommendation from somebody for the next visit?

She should shut the hell up.  Seriously.  Find a different doctor.  Btw, you DO NOT need to lose weight!

Find a different doctor.  That’s totally inappropriate and uncalled for.  Any BMI calculator/chart will tell you that height/weight is perfectly healthy.

By The Way, I’m 5’8″, 150 lbs, size 8.

For your height you’re a great weight!

I personally would find a new doctor and NEVER go back to this one. Ever.

That just sounds wrong.  That’s a BMI of 21.5….a very healthy weight. The Centers for Disease Control consider a healthy range for your height to be between 129 and 174…so you are in the lower half for that. I have no idea what she must have been thinking.

That’s not overweight. Find a new doctor.

@Jamie: Maybe she accidentally put it in as 5’1??  but still, she should have been able to look at you and know you weren’t overweight.  Bizarre.

Wow! That is crazy! You sound perfectly healthy to me. I would definately go to a different doctor. I am sorry that she made you feel bad (I know I would feel the same way too).
