Thanks folks

I just wanted to quickly say thanks to all of you who responded to my rant about my doctor. I think that he now realizes that he's taken this weight loss thing a little too far. I know that he's just trying to get me down to my ideal weight, but his "bedside manner" sucks. The thing is, this is the ONLY problem I've had with him so far. I am considering switching as many of you suggested, it's just going to be a matter of finding someone new. The bottom line here is not whether his intentions are good or not, but rather that I feel like complete shit every time I leave his office if I haven't lost any weight. I don't need that in my life. The way I see it... I've made some great progress, and much of it before he even started grilling me to lose weight, and I'm a beautiful, strong woman. I'm not obese and I doubt the extra 10lbs that I'm carrying around is causing THAT much of a health risk. I will get it down because I want to do it for me. Not because some doctor thinks I should.

I really appreciate everyone's advice and support. Wasn't expecting that kind of response...probably because although I was upset, I figured I should just deal with it because it was his "professional opinion". I realize now that even if he is trying to give me medical advice, there's a right way and a wrong way to do it. That was the wrong way and I don't have to put up with it.
