Long time lurker, first time poster trying to get some CC to verify.
I am almost finished with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing and I am ashamed with the human race, I am from Minnesota and had to transfer to a South Dakota campus. Out of 16 students I am the only human sized one out of every single one of them, and I had just had my daughter three months prior to starting. (Que their concerns of my 'anorexia' since they just don't understand how I can only eat a bowl of oatmeal without sugar and an apple for lunch, how else could I have lost the weight so fast). <-Ham logic.
Piggys: Reeee! But I gained 50 ibs in my pregnancy because muh thyroid so it takes longer to lose the weight!
Me: I gained 75 (mostly swelling) because of bed rest/gestational diabetes and lost it by 12 weeks through diet/exercise/breastfeeding.
Them: Reee! Guhnutiks!
Don't they get embarrassed when nearly every disease we go through-the main risk factors are hypertension, obesity, and sedentary lifestyle? (I can not even go into how many diseases state them as high risk -modifiable- changes.)
And since we are in our last quarter we do a lot of patient teaching during clinicals, how the hell can a fatty tell a fatty to lose weight without feeling like a hypocrite?
