    Anyone else feel obligated to lose weight? I feel like it's part of my job to set an example.

    Registered nurse who needs to lose lots of weight. Don't feel I can talk to my patients about their weight issues when I look at myself.

    I'm an RN - feel free to add me! When I was in nursing school, I remember when a guest nurse came to talk to our clinical group. She said she highly regretted not taking care of herself during her career. Her weight caused a lot of problems for her. Let's not let that happen to us! On the road to good health!!!

    I wasn't sure whether to respond or not as I don't really identify myself as a "medical" professional, but I saw so many people from 'allied' health professionals responded.
    I'm a psychiatric social worker (original degree in psychology, then did my MSW) and after 20 years in the field I decided to change course a little and I'm presently in my final year of a postgraduate psychotherapy diploma.
