Hi everyone, first of all I would like to share my idea with everyone. The bracelets you can see in the picture represent the kilograms I would have to loose to reach my ideal weight. Each bead is 1kg. Yes, I know... It's a lot of beads :/ each kg lost, I'll swap a bead to colourfull ones. Seems a little bit childish considering I'm 31y old but thought would be a good reminder to have on me all the time of how much weight I have to loose/have lost. Hopefully I'll be able to get rid of all the black beads
Now, just want to share my frustrations and ask your opinion.
Went to my GP today and mentioned seeing a dietitian to help me with my healthy eating. I have a lot of health issues and sometimes have digestive problems with some healthy ingredients so I thought would be a good idea to have assistance from a professional.
I was told it's virtually impossible to see a dietitian through NHS and was advised to be part of one of the slimming clubs. Maybe it's just me but I think this is absurd! Considering my health history, shouldn't I be entitled to professional advise? I understand the queues and that some people have priority over me...
What I find most frustrating is having a GP advise one of those groups.
Would they consider my health issues for my diet plan? Does paying to loose weight really help? If being healthy is a life long commitment, do they expect someone to attend for life?
My GP told me weighing in front of other people motivates you to loose weight. Really? I think I would feel ashamed, embarassed, not motivated... Maybe is a culture thing (I was born and raised in a southern European country).
Do you guys have any experience with those groups? Does it work? Would like your opinion on this...
