~After years with no period and an 80lb. weight gain in 1 yr., I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I am very insulin resistant, and take 1500-2000mg of glucophage per day. I was finally able to have a baby naturally after trying for over 6yrs. and many doctors telling me I would never conceive.

~After years with no period and an 80lb. weight gain in 1 yr., I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I am very insulin resistant, and take 1500-2000mg of glucophage per day. I was finally able to have a baby naturally after trying for over 6yrs. and many doctors telling me I would never conceive. A bad car accident in my past and many complications during my pregnancies have left me with overwhelming back and SI joint problems. I am in physical therapy weekly and am looking forward to getting stronger and finally being able to enjoy activities with my children like I've always dreamed of doing. I do feel I am very lucky in life, with my beautiful son, daughter, and ever supportive husband, but I don't think I will ever be truly content at the size I am now. I'm smaller than I was when I got married 10 yrs. ago, (My highest wt. was 260), but at 235lbs. I don't exactly feel like a "HOT" mom, which is exactly what I desire to be. My dream is to lose enough weight that I can hire a photographer to take really sexy pics of me(like in Maxim or Stuff) and make a calender for my husband. I encourage any who read this to contact me and let's help each other with our goals!

*"We must all suffer one of two things: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret and disappointment". - Jim Rohn

*"Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go." - William Feather

*"Suffering is the tuition one pays for a character degree."

*"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Nelson Mandela

Personal Information:
I'm a Georgia girl through and through. I miss the food (although I cook it here), the wild wisteria and honeysuckle, the heat, the humidity, and the TREES! I especially miss the OCEAN and being able to go to the beach when ever I feel like it!! I also miss good manners and good neighbors who are friendly..since CS seems to be a little lacking in that department:(

Hi!
Craze and I would like to take over leadership of the Insulin Resistance team if that's okay with you!

We both noticed you haven't posted in over a year.
Thx

MZZCHIEF and I both are wondering if you're still leading Insulin Resistance?

I too have Insulin Resistance.

Hi! Are you still the leader of the Insulin Resistant team?
I would like to get some help with my insulin resistance but there doesn't seem to be anyone active on this team.

Guess what? Someone is thinking of you - me!

Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.
