In episode 44 we discuss some tips for how to deal with doctors shaming you about your weight or size. Jacqueline has experienced various forms of shaming from her doctors nearly her entire life. Recently she found a doctor @thatgaydoctor on TikTok who shared some tips to help overcome what he calls "fatphobic providers." We share and explain some tips on how to steer the conversation how you would like it to go. Having a plan and trying to execute and control the narrative is such a key to letting your doctor know how you are feeling about your weight and what you want to talk about and what you are comfortable discussing. The primary reason for your visit will also play a big role in how you try and steer the conversation regarding stepping on the scale and your weight overall. We hope that this discussion about standing on the scale as well as conversation with your doctor can help you if you are on a weight loss journey and are worried about going to the doctor because you don't want to have the dreaded weight conversation.
