Nothing beats getting told your obese by 8:20 in the morning.
I guess I'm a little grumpy today. I had a WIC appointment today at 8:20 am and even though I expected it I'm a little irritated at WIC. They weighed me today and showed me where I was on their "charts". I was way up high above all the prefered weight gain and they pointed it out to me and told me they wanted me to be way down here. Then proceeded to tell me AGAIN that I needed to be really careful what I eat and try to not gain any more weight. To which I snapped "well, my doctor says my weight gain is fine and he's not worried so I think I go with his advice." Like I sit at home and eat bon bons all day and pig out constantly. UGH!!!! I HATE that they use the BMI charts. It's according to the BMI charts that I'm obese. I'm sorry, I look at myself and I really don't think I'm obese. I'm very muscular and I'm glad for that. I have a husband who is never here, he's doing what he needs to do but the fact remains that he is not here very often. If I had to wait until he got home to carry something for me I would never get things done. One of my best friends mentioned that when she was in her peak physical shape she weighed the most she ever has in her life. I kind of feel the same way. Up until a couple of weeks ago I was going to the gym every day and working out for an hour and a half. I was and still am in great physical shape. I weigh a lot more than I look like I do. I just wish they would look at me and see that "nope, she doesn't fit into the obese category". I'm sick of it and tired of the snide remarks from the dietician at WIC.
