Did You Say Doctor?
I can honestly say, I haven't been to a doctor in over six years. I'm not sure if I'm bragging or embarrassed, but it is the truth. In fact, I've gone through many different doctors on my insurance card since the last time I went. The last doctor I went to retired, followed by one that stopped accepting my insurance, followed by now not really having a doctor. I read a lot of posts on the Weight Watcher boards this week about going to an "overweight" doctor and if his/her comments about weight loss would motivate you to lose weight. I'm not doing this because some doctor told me too. I'm worried about the outcome if I don't lose weight without hearing it from a doctor. I know there are many "silent killers" out there and when I reach my next milestone birthday, I do plan on going to the doctor, but for now I am quite happy taking my kids to the doctor. I just have a feeling that all the doctor would say is, "you're doing great, keep doing what you're doing, the bill's in the mail!"
