Well That's a Bummer

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Recently I have found out that I have the following issues:

-Fatty liver
-Graves disease

Fantastic. I'm just trying to process this information but I don't know what to think. I just have questions.

-Can I lose weight?
-Can my health get better or is this my permanent condition?
-Can have another baby?

I guess what I need to do now is find some support groups here. Maybe that will help me figure things out.

One a good note, I bought myself a used Bob stroller (jogging stroller) to encourage my activity outside with baby. It is kind of my reward for my weight loss so far. I need to think about what my next reward will be for my next weight loss accomplishment (see how I'm trying to be positive emoticon). Maybe I could buy a new pair of running shoes? I'll think about it.

I have a lot to think about. emoticon

    Thank you, Deborah for the info! I'll check out that group. I hope this doesn't keep me from my goal.

    I did a web search to try to help you out. Regarding PCOS, it said that weight loss is the most effective method of restorig normal ovulation / menstruation. It sounds like it can be reversed. Both Graves disease and fatty liver disease can affect your metabolism. For both diseases separately it seems to say that it is hard to lose weight, but not impossible. For the fatty liver disease, they suggest eating a high fiber diet / low fat diet. Make sure your carbs are complex carbohydrates. You might want to track your fiber on the nutrition tracker. There is a team for members with Graves disease. I am not sure about the fatty liver disease. Good luck! I hope this has helped you.
