    Hiya everyone!

    Just had my meeting with my CDC - all went really well! Unfortunately cannot start straight away as i have to see my GP - due to my BMI being over 40....BOO HOO!! Was so looking forward to cracking on with it! Now i'm worried the GP will say NO!! Has anyone else had this happen or heard of it happening? I have no contraindicated illnesses/medications etc.......all the ticks on my medical form were NO's. Anyhoo - will contact the surgery in the morning and try and get to see a Dr tomorrow. Otherwise it will be next week ....

    Hope everyone is having a good day xxx

    Thanks Becky x

    Think i'm worrying over nothing as usual!! Moved a year ago and other than registering at the surgery, have never had to go!! Other Half has to go regularly and he reassures me they're a lovely bunch!! Think i'm just mentally scarred from a horrible GP i had a few years back! :cry:

    Good luck hun with your CD - hopefully i will be starting this weekend aswell!!

    I would of thought your doctor would support you as your planning to lose weight..........plus you haven't got no yes's on your medical form.....so it should be fine x x x x Let's hope you can get a doctors appointment quick, because if it's any like mine yours be waiting ages! lol


    Good luck

    it's also great when you go back a few months later and they're amazed at the difference!!

    i had to get a medical form signed as my bmi was 58 when i started, i also had no contraindications
    took my form to the gp, he didnt need to see me, i handed it in, he read it along with the booklet information for gp's then brought it back out to me when he had signed it. i wasnt charged for it as they were happy i was tackleing my weight. hope everything goes well for you tomorrow

    I think that they can charge you for it, but usually as your doing something about your weight the doctor will oversee it x x x
