I am wondering if you are a nurse?
I have struggled with my weight my whole life, and yes it is a struggle, despite your oversimplication of the matter. Nurses are human beings, full of flaws. Who said that you have to be perfect to care about other human beings and want to do something worthwhile with your life? How dare you.
I am an excellent nurse, and I thank God everyday that I have this profession, that allows me to feel valuable despite my flaws. I am not a hypocrite. If anything my patients know I understand how difficult it is to make lifestyle changes, as I struggle with them myself. If anything it makes me more effective. Patients need to the nutured and supported, not judged. If you were an effective "teacher" you would know this. Apparently you are not.
This is the first time I've posted on line..but this topic is near and dear to my heart...
I have been a nurse a number of years, and have always struggled with my weight. I am not morbidly obese...but am at least 50lbs overweight
However, please reassure your friend that my nursing career I have felt has been the one thing in my life I could always be proud of, and I am so glad I stuck it out in school.
Its all about your patients. And your patients don't care what you look like....they know you are there to help them, at a vulnerable time in their lives, and they are grateful. Nothing in the world is more valuable than that. If you put your patient's first, your coworkers will recognize that too.
I hope that helps her...
