    Even though my brain is saying I'll be ok.....

    What's wrong with me?

    Doc says I have an enlarged liver due to my weight.......what does this mean?

    I'm really sorry :( I think you might still be in denial. My Drs have been warning me for years that my weight puts me at higher risk of blood clots because of the pill & that I couldn't conceive because of it too! It's still taken me a while to get my head into the right place to lose weight!

    I'm not sure what an enlarged liver means really, might be worth asking your GP to clarify. x

    I agree with SlimmerGem make an appt to see your doctor & clarify what an enlarged liver means.

    Only you can lose weight, if you're determined you'll do it.

    Have you started SW? If so it may help if you start a diary on here, I take pics of my food which helps keep me on track, even though I'm a maintainer I still record my syns & weigh hexs when needed.

    Good luck

    I'm not sure if it's being in denial or the fact that I know to lose weight and be healthy like I want to I have to stop doing the things that got me here......yes ok denial

    I know that if I give it up I would sleep better, be more awake at work, not be hungry all the next day which means I blow whatever diet I'm on before lunchtime, not spend to much money and not keep gaining weight.......

    So if I know all this why do I think giving up the vodka is boring?????????

    I will admit, I have had the worst 4 years of my life (my mum died from cancer) which has led me to gain over the 5st that I lost before all the pain.....

    It has just dawned on me to think of this like I did when I gave up smoking over 20 years ago, (also the last time I was thin!!!!)

    I found giving up smoking the easiest thing ever

    All makes sense what I have to do when I write it down, so what's stopping me?

    Take each day at a time and I know it seems obvious but plan meals, plan yummy meals, with SW you don't need to go hungry there are so many things you can eat. Take a look at a diaries on here & see if you get some ideas for meals which will keep you on track, and don't forget to treat yourself, vodka is allowed!!!!

    I hope you can get the enlarged liver clarified by a professional and not by googling. I do know the liver is an amazing organ. My husband had 25% of his liver removed and another large tumour lasered just before last Christmas due to cancer which had spread. I believe it has probably grown back by now and he is doing really well and finally finished chemo. Unreal. Best of luck and come out fighting. This is a good place to get some back up. :):)

    I have to admit not brill......

    I haven't had a drink since Sunday, but I'm having a few tonight.....

    I have been sleeping better and going to bed earlier, but as normal after a couple of days of being good I get bored aaaaaaaaaaaaa

    How the hell am I ever going to stick to any plan if I get bored of being good and going to bed at a good time after just 3 days :-(

    WTF is wrong with me?

    Are you doing SW?, I assume so as you've posted in the SW section but you stats don't say;)

    Have you had a look at peoples diaries on here? if you're bored after a few days what's the cause, food, no longer interested, feel the need to eat when not hungry??????????
