As most of you already know, I have stuggled with weight my entire life. And I dont mean an extra 20lbs, serious weight issues. Even though I am technically obese, I “carry my weight well”. But, its not my looks that are the problem. I honestly dont care that much about how “big” I look. I just want to be normal. I want to be able to go into a store and know that I can find something that will fit. I want to be confident that I will fit in that chair…etc. These are not things that “normal” people have to worry about. Now, I could go on forever on how depressing it is to be obese but lets not. so..on to the point of this thread….
I plan to go to a new doctor this month (just moved) and I think it is a great opporunity to be honest with my provider on my weight issues. I really need to loose weight and i dont think I can do it on my own. Pathetic…I know…but I cannot. I have tried for so many years and I cannot do it. I dont want surgery (plus I dont think I weight enough for that) and I am not a pill person. But I realize that those might be my only options.
So…my question is…has anyone here went to their doctor for weight loss help? If so, please share your experience (what did they suggest, did it work, any side effects?)
Thanks so much in advance ladies!
