He was definitely in the wrong. I hope you will remember this feeling when you are a doctor. Way too many doctors lack sensitivity when they are dealing with patients in front of other people.

=-O oh wow that person is a jerk. Just hold your head high for coming as far as you have and let the negitivity roll off your back. I’m nearly the same size and age as you (size 12 and 26 years old) I don’t think I’m fat but I know I’m a little bigger. You’re fine, they have the problem.

WOW! That was UNCALLED FOR!! He sounds like a jerk (though to be fair, some cultures think this is appropriate…but sorry, in America it’s just plain RUDE!!!). I FEEL your pain! I have lost 100lbs, and kept it off!! I am now a size 13/14 in jeans!! (GO US!)

I almost died in the dressing room, while trying on wedding gowns…my mother told the consultant, “Oh, she’s touchy about her size”, and then she just looked at me and said, “Don’t worry, she knows how to fit brides that are YOUR size”.

I felt like an elephant wearing a wedding dress, and we are seriously not that big!! I am 30-40lbs overweight for my height, admittedly..and also 25!!

The doctor was rude, you should be proud of yourself for losing weight, yes you put more on but you’re also sitting 16hr days!! You’re doing the right thing by trying to take care of yourself…you are TRYING that’s ALL that matters!!

@HappilyEverAfter54:  Houston, we have a problem! You are not “bigger” at size 12. The average size is 14.

So sorry you had to experience that.  I would have been mortified as well.  (hugs) I’m sure that WON’T be your future.

OP, Aw man, that sucks! You totally should have thrown it in his face that you understand this and have worked to lose 110 pounds and mention that you don’t have any chronic disease states though he seems to be in chronic male PMS!

That’s not okay and it’s not fair either. I know he meant well, but he showed it in a completely inappropriate way, especially with others present.
