Hi everyone, I won't bore you all with the stories of the battles with my weight. I've been overweight for around 15 years, I'm 5'8 and 15 stone. I have a liver condition called cirrhosis, which basically means my liver is badly damaged and has a lot of scar tissue, which makes it difficult for the blood to flow through it properly and could very well lead to liver failure in the future, as well as some other nasty symptoms which I won't go into. The consultant told me the one single thing I must do to prevent any further damage to my liver is to lose weight and exercise. That was almost a year ago and I did manage to lose a stone in the months following. But I've done my usual trick and put it all back on again. I'm the typical emotional eater, I eat when I'm bored, angry, sad, stressed etc..I feel as though I have some kind of eating disorder, whereby I go into a "zone" where nothing seems to matter except the next mouthful of food, even while being fully aware of the consequences. I'm hoping I can get some support and inspiration on this forum and share experiences with others who are struggling, but winning, this battle! Looking forward to getting to know some of you, thank you for reading my post!
