Call your doctor! Some weight loss isn't bad, but if you've lost 15 lbs you better talk to your doctor.

I'm surprised that your doctor wasn't concerned about 15 lbs of weight loss.

I'm glad WIC got involved so you can find out what is going on. You might want to change to a doctor that will take you more seriously.
