Keep on keeping on

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Obviously this is a struggle for me. The PCOS was a mis-diagnosis. Upon visiting a specialist this past June, I was told that what I had was not PCOS, but rather, stage 3 endometriosis. This was corrected with surgery and I've dropped 26 pounds since June! That is my biggest post parenthood weight loss every. I'll take it. And hopefully keep moving with it. It gets me just over half way to my first weight loss goal.

    If you don't mind me asking...I have been diagnosed with PCOS as did they rule out PCOS and determine it was Endometriosis?

90 Day Update

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

So here we are at the end of the summer, 3 months into the workout plan that is going to help me beat PCOS. Progress is slow, but it is still progress. Here is what I've seen so far.

Weight: Down 8 lbs
Neck: Down 1 inch
Chest: Down 2.5 inchs
Waist: Down 4 inchs
Hips: Down 1 inch
Arm: Down 1.25 inchs
Thigh: Down 1 inch
Calf: Down 0.25 inch

BP: 138/86 Down from the stage 1 hypertension level to the "prehypertension" level.

Before photo followed by June 27, July 27, August 27:

Side view (No BEFORE because I didn't think of it until June 27!)

Also, I am running the entire 5K now! It takes me around 45 minutes from start to finish when I run on the road or sidewalk. For some reason, when I run on the trail, it takes a little less time. I don't know if it's just less fatiguing or if the mile markers on the trail are wrong...

7 pounds

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

I restarted this journey on June 1 after finally getting somewhat of a handle on the health issues I was having related to PCOS. At that time it was taking me a hour to complete 5K. I progressed through the 5K your way program on the jog/walk track 3 days a week and at this point, I am running 80% of it and it now only takes me 40 minutes.

I am seeing the inches coming off, but the big frustration has been the scale. The first couple of weeks I easily lost 5 pounds but after that the scale just.would.not.move. For two months I didn't lose so much as an ounce.

Finally, this morning, I stepped on the scale to see that I lost 2 pounds this week! Yay for 7 pounds down even if the average, non-PCOS woman would have probably lost 3 times that by now;-)

No progress, but some progress

Friday, August 03, 2012

I am still seeing very little progress on the scale. Since starting to get serious about workouts the first week of June, I have only dropped 5 pounds. That's only like half a pound a week. I think if I weren't taking measurements and these photos, I would have given up on it. I do feel stronger, and I can see visible changes in my body even if I can't see them on the scale.

June, July, and August

July and August

    You are doing amazing! Since I joined Curves in May, I have not lost as much as I wanted, but most was fat, which is what you are doing also!

    There is a HUGE difference. You are probably a naturally muscular build (like me) so you will build a ton of muscle and then suddenly you will see the weight just melt off. Just keep at it because for five pounds, your mid-section, shoulders and chest all look so much more trim. And your butt has lifted! emoticon

Started week 5 of my 5K Your Way program tonight and I averaged 13.67 minutes per mile! I know this is no great time or anything, but at the beginning of summer break it was taking me 17 minutes to complete a mile and around an hour to finish the course. Today it too me 41 minutes. Yay for progress. Small steps, I know; but steps nonetheless.
