So on the day you started this thread (May 2nd), I weighed just shy of 22 stone (300lbs / 140kg).

As I type this today, I weigh 16 stone (224lbs / 102kg).

Well done Holyman.

How tall are you? It would give me a better idea as to your general weight distribution.

I've lost weight recently but started to feel unsteady when I got under 200lbs.

I'm just shy of 6' 2", if I'm not wearing stilettos.

And... I've more or less survived Christmas without putting six stone back on..! Which was always going to be a challenge...

Got to get down the gym now, for Phase 2..!

I had a sort out of my clothes at the weekend and found I had far too much. This is because I had a set of clothes for:

- Healthy(ish) weight
- Fat bastard weight
- Oh dear God I'm bordering on obese weight

I'm hovering between the latter two at the moment. They're in storage mentally labelled as 'Achievable in 1 month' and 'Achievable in 3 months'.

I've lost 4lbs in the last 7 days which is a good start. Amazing what giving up 5000 calories a week in booze can do!

Got the final word on my liver from the doc, and although yes I have a fatty liver it looks more like it's because I'm fat rather than specifically the booze. In short it's ok to drink as long as it's part of a calorie controlled diet.

In all seriousness though I have little self control when there's good booze in the house, so I need to just not buy it and only drink when I'm out. Have attempted this before so hopefully I'll have more luck this time.

How comes you got ultrasound for it anyway? Did you get LFT bloods done?

Should get mine looked at, has been a while. I don't get sweats and shit though, i'm a non-problematic beer monster.

You know Holywoman is an alcoholic, right? She's been sober for eight years, next month.

What's an "alcoholic"?

How much do you have to drink every day to be an "alcoholic"?

Alcoholics Anonymous defines it like this:

You feel you are drinking more than you want to; you have tried to cut down, but have been unable to.

That's it.

You can be an alcoholic on a single glass of wine a day. If you absolutely cannot get through the day without it, have tried to stop, but haven't been able to.

Are you drinking more booze than you feel is good for you Slacks?

Have you tried to reduce your alcoholic intake?

Have you been able to?

:-?

The 'hmmmm am I an alcoholic?' question is something I've pondered in the past. For me it's more on the 'no I'm not' but it's not straightforward.

In short I am generally an 'all or nothing' type person when it comes to drinking at home. At my worst I'm on a bottle of red a night +beer or a couple of whiskies. I'd be taking Nexium daily for severe heartburn and popping ibuprofen before bed as a pre-emptive strike against the 4am headache. Serious stuff.

This will continue for 2 to 3 months. I will ponder stopping but dont.

...until I do.

When I decide to stop I stop. The first night I'll miss it, but after that it's easy. Since NY Eve I've had a glass of champagne on the 6th for my Mum's birthday and a beer with my meal whilst out with my wife for dinner last Saturday. Nothing at home.

This will also continue for 2 to 3 months. Nothing at home, a drink or two with a dinner out, and perhaps one 'session' on a night out.

What typically then happens is that drinking will sneak its way back into the home routine. I'll buy a bottle 'because it's Friday'. Same logic will then apply to Saturday. Then Sunday to relax before work starts, and before I know it I'm back to the bad place drinking every night.

So, a problem drinker for sure, but not quite an alcoholic.

The key for me is not having booze I really like at home. The fact that my wife had gin and tonic in the cupboard doesn't tempt me in the slightest because although I like it it's not one of my faves. But if there was a bottle of red or a decent whiskey I'd be far more tempted.

Hoping to break the cycle of stupidity this year.

Just quit drinking wine, it’s gay anyway.

When you go to the store, just get a couple tall cans of that cheap Dutch/Danish/whatever beer. And don’t give yourself the option of overdrinking.

Suspect shit was dark, sticky and tar-like.
