I feel that I have a good self image of myself, I also do not have any interest in what so ever as going on a "diet" to me plan healthy eating combined with regular working out is all that is needed (aka living a healthy lifestyle).

I do not actually have a weight goal that I am looking for, but I do have a Body Fat % that I am aiming for instead (K yes there is a goal, but reaching it isn't a goal on my end more my doctors side of the deal). I figure that is a better goal then the number of the scale since the scales never tell the full truth of the matter to start with.

When I had my BF% dun I was sitting at 35% thus I am aiming for 25% as my goal. Though I will admit that getting into the low 200's would be nice, but in truth if 25% BF means I'm still in the 200's then so be it to me that is still good, since its not fat that I'll be carrying but muscle weight.

On a side note, I have Acute Intermittent Porphyria (AIP) which though doesn't really effect weight loss in and of itself however it can effect it because of what is needed to prevent an attack goes counter to a lot of weight loss deals including the management of two other conditions I have (PCOS and Diabetes), so telling me to go or do LCHF isn't even a remote option unless I would like to end up in the Hospital with an attack.

All that being said I've managed to work out a plan with my medical team and we've come up with a plan that works for me - which is 60% carbs, 25% protein and 15% fat, not to far off of what SP says or what the Canadian Food Guide recommends, and its enough to keep me from an attack.

I am not much of a meat eater, preferring a plant based deal. I'm also allergic to dairy and coconut, plus I have issues with eggs, nightshades, and a host of other foods and supplemental items so its a jugging act to get things right for my own health - but something I'm always learning about and working to achieve.

Outside of all this I am a pagan and am into macintosh computers, graphic design, web design and photography.

My Husband and I are ChildFree by choice and by natures will.

I have PCOS, Diabetes, Celiac, and Porphyria - all of them make getting the weight off a minor problem for one reason or another, and all of them carry medical problems which I have to live with, but only one of them can kill me if i eat wrong or take the wrong medications (talk about a b and a half).

By trade I am a graphic and web designer, and have been working in the field as a freelancer for just over 18 years now. I own my own business doing web sites and some DTP here and there for small companies, I also work seasonally as a progressional photographer.

I have learned I cannot do it all at once. But I can do at least one thing every day to make an effort to be healthy.
"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out." ~Robert Collier
You are doing amazing. Being in the top five for team fitness minutes is inspiring!
Continue to make small efforts every day and it will all add up to success! Together we can do this!!!

Thank you so much for the comment on my blog! It's nice knowing there are other people like me out there. I still feel like in society there is that stigma about a younger woman with an older man. Maybe that's why I get embarrassed talking about it. It did feel good to blog. Hopefully once I start taking better care of myself and loving myself more I will find a great guy!!! Hope you have a nice weekend!

HI!

I'm new on the PCOS team and noticed your post on one of the threads. I do have children, but am at the stage in life where I'd rather have grandchildren than children. So talk of fertility, etc really isn't what I'm looking for. I'd like to keep in touch, if you're game. I sure could use help figuring this stuff out. I've had symptoms for the last 24 years, but finally my current doctor is open to checking PCOS out.
