Maybe it's the (2) Oreos a night I have been eating OR the large amount of fruit I've been consuming for breakfast OR maybe it's just that my body is doing what it's supposed to! Point being that I've apparently put on 7 lbs in the past month. Honestly, I was surprised - last month's gain of 5 was one thing, but 7 was definitely more of a surprise. But, no big deal - as they say in "Knocked Up", "Your baby wants you to gain a whole mess of weight!"
I probably wouldn't have thought too much of it, except when I asked the doctor-with-no-bedside-manner what his thoughts were on a 7-lb weight gain, he said, "Well, whatever it is that you are eating that you obviously shouldn't be - needs to be eliminated from your diet."
WOW. Absolutely speechless.
I pictured him with a thought bubble above his head with images of french fries, milkshakes, candy bars and more, when he should've been picturing fruit, fruit and more fruit. When I explained that I had started to eat more fruit, I received a lecture about how much natural sugar is in food like that. While it's healthy, it's LOADED with sugar.
I'll spare you the details of the other conversations we had in the 10 minutes I was in the room. Good news, I am still measuring on track and my blood pressure is good. I just apparently need to cut back on the...fruit!
