Today, I was at my nursing internship. After helping a patient get into bed, I began to walk out of the room when I heard him say to another nurse, "Now that was a king sized lady". To make things even better, she didn't understand him the first time and I got to hear him say it again. FML

Op here! I was happy to see all of the supportive comments I got, I was expecting a lot of negative comments from judgmental people and there were only a few. I am a bit over weight but I have been working on it, I've lost 40 pounds in the last year with 30 to go. I am also pretty tall for a woman (just under 6'). I'm still not sure if he was commenting on my height or weight (maybe a combination of both). The adorable 94 year old man who made this comment is very sweet normally, so my ego was a little hurt for a while but I decided to brush it off :-)

Take it as a positive, OP.

No offense, and I do mean this with complete respect, but who wants an unhealthy nurse?

A nurse that isn't healthy telling you that YOU should stay healthy? That doesn't seem very fair.

Go for a walk, or maybe a run. You might even find a new hobby. Most people love it, as it reduces stress.

And what if OP does run and has a health issue, say a Thyroid disorder? Thyroid problems run in my family and I have watched family members try for years nearly everything medically and diet/exercise related possible and still be stuck at 200lbs
