Just been to my GP, who I last saw when I got my LL form completed (late Feb). She totally didn't recognise me, and when she finally worked out who I was, was SO complimentary and interested in LL, and says she is going to talk to some of her other patients about it! She really was so positive, and totally supported the whole CBT and TA part of it - it was fab. Oh, and she said my blood pressure had dropped and I am now only (according to her scales) 4lbs away from my ideal weight :) She couldn't belive I weighed well over 17 stone last time I saw her :D
Sorry that's all a bit "me me me", but I can't tell you how great I am feeling right now, and I am so pleased to have such a "modern" GP who is so supportive of the programme :)

Well done Lucy. There should be more GPs like her and more financial support for those who cannot afford to do such a programme. Well done to you and you look absolutely fab. You should shout about your achievements and be proud of yourself. It is hard work and you did it!!

That's fab! I need to go and see mine at some point I reckon and am wondering what his reaction will be.

Well done you- I think a 'me me me' post is perfectly appropriate!

Great GP! What a rush of good emotions that must have been!

I haven't been back to my GP since she signed the form in December. Maybe I'll get a similar response! Waiting to be a healthy BMI first so a couple of months or so yet. Will have to think of an excuse to book an appointment though....

Hee Hee - I love it!

My doctor is also very supportive - unlike that of my cousin who has refused to give treatment whilst he is on the diet! I think that is rather breaking his duty of care ...

Well done Lucy, you must be chuffed, and pleased to have done so well, and like BL says shout it from the roof tops, put an advert in the local paper, you done good.
