Well, last night I was sat in my GP’s surgery for 40 mins waiting to be seen, I got bored, so I started to read every single poster they had, I then saw this !
Now, on the face of it, it looks good, HOWEVER look in the top right hand side “Girls Only”, Not an issue I though, there MUST be a “Men Only” day somewhere too, but alas there was no poster, this got me thinking, Most weight loss is geared towards women, so that when someone of the size I used to be looks around all they see, in the main, is stiff for women, as such its harder for men to start to lose weight as there isn’t as much support !
The above also reminded me of when I logged onto “Eatwell.gov” there is a BMI calculator on there and I thought, “What BMI would our Government say I was at 39+ stone ?” so I set about putting my details in and got this.
They said that NO ONE could weigh so much and I must have it wrong !!!!!!!!!!
So the Government and Local PCT’s still seem to have the attitude so very wrong on obesity, I feel a soap box moment coming 🙂
