Lab Work and Physical

Met with my Doc for my physical and to get my lab work done. It took 3 needle pokes to get the veins they needed for the blood tests (I HATE needles!).

Dr. Schaat was awesome and made me feel comfortable. The EKG (heart mapping) was humiliating though. I had to take my shirt off, mount my fat lard on the hospital bed/chair. Nicole Richie couldn't have fit on that thing comfortably.

Then two skinny young female nurses stuck wires all over my fat body and ran the test. They were nice but it still sucked. I think nurses should all be 40+, heavy set and slightly unattractive. It really would help me be less self conscious.

This post totally lost me on your blog - how dare you say that all the nurses should be heavy set so you don't feel self conscious - Are you nuts? No wonder Allan ripped you a new one.

You did this to yourself - and you have to deal with it - and it is unfair to point out someone else's obvious healthy weight, discount it and make snide remarks so you feel better.

Now I know where Allan was coming from. And believe me bringing Nicole Richie into this is not only cruel but actual people of normal weight DO fit on those chairs/beds.

The most embarrassing moment I ever witnessed in the hospital was when they had to bring a wheelchair out for an obviously OBESE patient. The thing folded in threes - I was so sorry for the guy that had to get in. My entire family of 4 - Dad, Me, an 18 year old and a 13 year old could have ridden that thing and still had room for the dog. Ridiculous.

Feel better about yourself some other way but don't imply that the nursing staff should be unhealthy just because you are.

This is the stupidest thing I have ever read on a weight loss blog.

Oh chill out!. It was ment as a joke you bloke. I don't want everyone to be fat like me so I feel better about myself. If You read this then thought that you obviously don't get me or how I write. And this wasn't a NORMAL person doctor, it was a bariatric doctor who's NORMAL patient is obese. Be happy.

Born in Utah, I moved from coast to coast as a kid and camped long enough in Charlotte, NC to call it home in my teens. After High School I served a mission for the LDS church in Ventura CA. I fell in love with the people. After I moved to Utah and met a woman who was everything I wanted in a wife and more. We are building a beautiful family with my handsome boy and my baby girl. I have grown to love the beauty of Utah. When I die and go to heaven, I am convinced it will be a lot like living on a houseboat at Lake Powell. Jack of all trades and master of none, I am a fixer and an idea man. I love to tinker or, as my Dad calls it, dinkin' arround. I love to find solutions to other people's problems and figure out the stuff that drives people crazy. My loooooong term goal is to be a dbadmin or database software developer. I believe in God the Father and in his Son Jesus Christ. I believe in a Latter-Day Prophet and that the gospel of Jesus Christ exists today as it did when he lived on the earth. I hate when people take themselves too seriously. Laugh. Smile. Be nice just because.
