Yes, some were kind and caring. Some rude and hurtful. When I was 11, one doctor put me on a 500 cal. diet. One doctor put me on Atkins. They always try something.

Yes. Some gently. Some very matter of fact. Some went into more detail about what the extra weight does to the human body. None of them ever asked me why I kept "choosing" to be overweight. SparkPeople does by asking me to consider how weighing more benefited me and why I want to lose weight now!
I am opening up to the possibilities of each day. I see that spark within others.
Actually no the last two I have had have not. I think that is why I stay at that clinic. They believe a woman knows what she sees in the mirror and doesn't need to be told she is overweight. They do make sure to educate the benefits I would see if or when I do lose weight. And they do make sure to give me positive feedback at any and all steps forward.
Life would be much more upbeat if there was just background music no matter when or where you were doing things.
It would also be more fun if people didn't look at you funny when you danced to the music down the sidewalk ha ha~

Yes, I've heard it before and have been offered visits with a nutritionist/dietician. The problem has never been that I don't "know" what to eat. The ever persistent problem is there are times I don't "care" what I eat - as long as it tastes good :/
