It's Official...

I am fat!!!

Doctor is concerned with my weight gain, well, so am I, little man.  I came here because my feet are hot, not for you to tell me I am fat.  Well, to give him credit, he did not say it right out.  It was something like, "Gail, I am a little concerned about the weight gain(five pounds in six months).  Is there anything different going on?"

Weren't you listening??  My feet are hot!  So hot I can't stand it. I don't think this condition would cause me to graze the all night buffet in doughnut country but maybe this why my feet are hot.  I AM FAT.

Kinda puts my health perspective right where it belongs, doesn't it?  What about blood pressure, thyroid disease, congestive heart failure, kidney stones or anything else besides I AM FAT. 

This suave handsome young man with a body of steel and a medical degree has stated his concern. 

Now, here is my concern, no, my promise to you, Dr FIT AS A FIDDLE.  I will be back and I will watch you grow old and droop in all the wrong places.  I will witness your tumble into the vast hole of  junkfooddom and I will laugh...ha!  Then I will voice my concern about your weight gain and ask you if there is anything different in your life.

OMG right before I clicked into my dashboard to check the blogs I just said to my husband that my feet are soooo hot. I swear that is exactly what I said.
He knows better than to mention my weight.

Doesn't matter if you're fat or skinny...high cholesterol is the big No-no nowadays. I had the lecture from my dr and ended up changing my eating habits and taking meds. The numbers are down now, and I guess that's good!

Five pounds in six months..I wouldn't say that is SO bad. Why are your feet burning..I want to know because some nights mine burn too..and I was gonna get my answer via you. Do they burn because we are fat..how is that possible..?? I hate skinny doctors:(

For you feet, did you try feet cream with menthol and camphor inside ? In France we have a very nice one : http://www.beaute-test.com/soin_hydra_-_relaxant_dermophil.php, but I have no idea if there is something similar in your country...

Concerning the weight... I suggest you to live and let die... This doctor seems to be a big as... Ahem... Kinf of a stupid specimen of human, indeed.

Jules said...

I'm laughing at both your post and some of the comments. So did he even address your feet?

I just hate it when you ask someone a question and the answer they give relates in no way to the question.

rebecca said...

yeah. been there. but with this godforsaken heat it's no wonder your feet are hot. and with this heat, you can also be carrying extra fluids in your system - around the ankles, especially. hydrate it out. drink lots and lots of water and flush out the excess sodium in your body and see if that helps a bit.

Cara said...

That is hard to hear. You knew it was true anyway. My weight can fluctuate that much in my monthly cyle.
Hot feet can be serious. I have one hot foot and one cold one. The hot one is from a irritation to a sympathetic nerve comming out of my lumbar spine. The cold one is Raynaud's Symdrome

5 pounds in 6 months??? Oh come on! Like some one said I did that in a month when I had a period since ihad my hysterectomy of course I dont have that problem. I am still chubby but it doesnt fluctuate(sp?) anymore.
Sounds like the doctor my husband went to because he had hurt his back.. She was concerned because his blood pressure was high and it could lead to Erectile Dysfunction!?!?
Hello he was 25 at the time.. His back was hurting so bad that he couldnt sit, stand or dress himself. He was not worried about certain things working right then. When you are in pain its normal for your BP to be a little high.
Sometimes I wonder what some of these doctors are really thinking or if they are thinking at all!

Judy said...

When you hit a certain age, the weight just pours on...and then do you think it will go away again...I don't think so...

Though I'm not sure if the hot feet come with the same age related symtoms...hhmmm...I'd ask again or see a podiatrist...

Nora said...

You were already told that you had to change your diet because of your high cholesterol. Don't forget about that. I'm sorry, I'm not feeling sorry for you. You are obviously not sticking to your diet. I'm a lousy friend.

LindaG said...

I did have to chuckle at your post. :)

Nezzy said...

Oh come on...since when did hot feet and weight go hand in hand? 'Never heard of such the like! No ya just tell that Dr. Dreamy that your not fat just come from good stock and ya want to know why your a hot foot all the sudden.

Take care girl and have a super day!!!

Suz said...

LOL... let's face it, we all gain a lil weight as we get older. I was freaking anorexic when I was in my 20s. Hell, I wish I had THAT to worry about these days. Now I'd love to lose 25 lbs.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

no matter what my symptoms are the doctor says losing a few pounds would help. I need to come up with something he can't say that about

Rudee said...

What the hell? What of your feet?

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Yeh, we're all fat...even skinny people are fat. We're supposed to have fat on us. lol!
Well maybe not as much as some of us have. But seriously, being fat is not the only reason people get sick or aren't feeling normal.

I can't stand doctors who wave all the symptoms and worries away with a simple, "You need to lose weight and you'll be all better"

Life isn't that simple. But it sure makes their jobs much simpler now, doesn't it?

Maybe doctors don't even need to go to medical school anymore. They can just tell all their patients.....you're fat, lose weight and you'll be just fine......now pay me my $300 for this visit, and be on your way.

bleh!

Five pounds in six months? C'mon, that's one shitting! I can gain that in one meal. It would be gone in a day or two. Gimme a break.
