Missy's Plan

I have struggled with my weight since I was about 10 years old. I would always gain a significant amount of weight then in no time I would lose the weight I gained and more. Just within the last 2 years I kept gaining weight without losing any for no apparent reason. Shortly after I was diagnosed with PCOS.
That diagnosis lead me to my ultimate goal, which is to improve my overall health, and to gain control over the PCOS, so that I will be healthier and my honey and I can finally start ...

For those of you that unfamiliar with PCOS. PCOS stand for, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
"PCOS is a health problem that can affect a woman’s menstrual cycle, fertility, hormones, insulin production, heart, blood vessels, and appearance. Women with PCOS have these characteristics:high levels of male hormones,also called androgens,an irregular or no menstrual cycle, may or may not have many small cysts in their ovaries. Cysts are fluid-filled sacs.
PCOS is the most common hormonal reproductive problem in women of childbearing age. An estimated five to 10 percent of women of childbearing age have PCOS. Many women with PCOS have a weight problem. So researchers are looking at the relationship between PCOS and the body’s ability to make insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the change of sugar, starches, and other food into energy for the body’s use or for storage. Since some women with PCOS make too much insulin, it’s possible that the ovaries react by making too many male hormones, called androgens. This can lead to acne, excessive hair growth, weight gain, and ovulation problems.In women with PCOS, the ovary doesn't make all of the hormones it needs for any of the eggs to fully mature. They may start to grow and accumulate fluid. But no one egg becomes large enough. Instead, some may remain as cysts. Since no egg matures or is released, ovulation does not occur and the hormone progesterone is not made. Without progesterone, a woman’s menstrual cycle is irregular or absent. Also, the cysts produce male hormones, which continue to prevent ovulation."
