I guess I was bothered by his comment because in previous appointments in the last 2-3 months he mentioned how I was looking good and looked like I had lost some weight (which I had). Those comments seemed much more positive to me than how he stated his most recent comments.
I went from feeling positive about how my physical had gone so well to feeling like a worthless blob. I try to exercise as much as I can throughout the week doing cardio. and lifting weights. At times my diet is not necessarily only salads and low calorie meals, but I do try to limit portion size. I felt I had been living a healthy lifestyle setting a good example for my children but now I am not so sure.
As we get older it is harder to lose weight as age and metabolism gang up against a lot of us. If anything I am stubborn and instead of allowing those negative comments to keep me down and out I am going to use them as motivation. My self-esteem is not so low that I will linger over his words another day. I may not be at the weight I want to be YET, but that does not mean I cannot be proud of who I am right now! So take that Dr.!
