Feeling a little fed up after nurse weigh in
According to my nurse I only lost 3 lb in 6 weeks which apparently is not enough on the tabs. When I mentioned that I put on 2lb over xmas she told me that under no circumstances should I put weight on. It was only when I got home it sunk in what she said, is she for real!!!!
The reason I was put on the tabs is cos I take alot meds each day of which a couple of them do cause weight gain so to lose half or a pound a week is really good for me.
Also, she keeps on at me about exercise which I do struggle with as I have constant nerve pain in my neck and shoulders which limits me but I have made alot of changes: I walk the dog further every day, get off at the bus stop before my usual one, exercise bike each day, walk up 6 floors at work 2 x's a day, whihc isn't too bad when I am constantly tired from my meds.
Anyway she has told me if I don't lose enough by next weigh in my Dr probably won't give me anymore.
Sometimes you do need someone to be a bit sharp and to the point but surely she is there to encourage, support and offer advice too??
Sorry to drone on but like others have said on this forum some nurses treat you as if you are stupid cos you are overweight - all it does for me is wind me up, ha ha ha!!!!
Never mind, eh.
