I am 45 years old and fat, there is no denying it. I’m about 220 pounds for 5’4 (I say “about” because I never weigh myself, I don’t even own a scale). I was very fit until my late twenties (after my pregnancies). I’d say I gained weight gradually, maybe 5 pounds a year.
I’ve been seeing a specialist for an illness I had my whole life and totally unrelated to my weight.
He is harassing me about my weight, my BMI, etc. EVERY. SINGLE. VISIT.
Thing is, I am otherwise very healthy, my blood tests are always within normal range, I even have lower blood pressure than the norm (always had).
I am ok with my body. I do not care about the fact that I am overweight, and no, I do not want to lose any.
I love food.
I don’t give a damn about exercise.
I never dieted a day in my life.
I am happy. I have a happy marriage (15 years), great kids, fantastic job. I have hobbies and friends.
I am seriously considering getting a new specialist.
Just needed to vent. thanks
