Isn't it interesting how carrots kind of grow like trees?

Yes, that is quite interesting haha

I just found your blog and read your doctor story from the previous post, and it makes me so mad how doctors just assume you're not doing anything about it. The same thing happened to me about 3 years ago when I went to the gyno- she said towards the end "do me a favor?" and I was like "yeah?" and she said "exercise for me"... she said I had gained a lot of weight in the last year and she's sure that there have been a lot of fast food stops and junk food eating since then. I was so appalled I was already super sensitive about the topic and feeling shitty and I actually ran out of the office crying. People in the waiting room probably thought I had AIDS or something, but I was already sensitive and it was just so rude. I would never go back to her. It doesn't sound like your doctor was that harsh, but I've been bitter since then. I've also lost 60 lbs and feel a lot better, but there are definitely better ways of going about the weight topic. HUGE congrats to you for the weight loss- that is awesome and also awesome you're willing to give her another chance, I hope she is nicer this time!

I can't believe she said it to you that way! That is so rediculous! I had a friend have a similar story, her gyno (who is a guy) said, I see your weight keeps creeping up year after year. GEEZE! They should emphasize bedside manner in med school!
