Re: Have you ever delayed doctor visits until you lost weight?

That's a funny question, and I bet more women have done that than men!

 

I would never postpone the doctor for that reason, but I will share a somewhat embarrassing experience about that. I went to the Ob/Gyn about 5 years ago, for a routine annual exam; I think I'd missed the previous year. When I got on the scale, I was mortified, to see it the highest weight I'd ever been, and blurted out, "And I can't even use the excuse that I'm pregnant!" That was the beginning of a long diet during which I lost 50 lbs!

This is a common thing a lot of women do, have you ever done this?
