PCOS, working out
Monday, November 05, 2012
I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. I am feeling so much better, but I still have the cough lingering. It’s not bad most of the time, but sometimes it gets pretty bad. Right now I can’t take any medicine with antihistamines because I am going in for allergy testing in a couple of days. Thank God I am doing a lot better or I’d be miserable. I hope after the testing they can tell me something that will be helpful.
I have been able to start back working out. I have worked out more days that I have not since I started back. I have been using my Exerbeat for my Wii. I have finally been able to get back on my Wii balance board because I no longer exceed the weight limit. I have exceeded the weight limit for so long that I’ve lost track of how long it’s been. I am really trying to stick with this.
Since I have PCOS, I have to go and get my insulin levels, etc checked on a regular basis. The last time I got my levels checked, I was 0.1 away from being diabetic. That really scared me because I really do not want to have diabetes. You’d think that I’d just make the better choices all along because I knew that was a possibility. Just knowing it was a possibility still didn’t kick my butt into gear. The doctor prescribed Victoza which is an injection that would supposedly replenish a hormone one’s stomach is supposed to make naturally but doesn’t when you have PCOS. It would also make it easier to lose weight with PCOS. After exactly one week of taking it, I couldn’t take it. It had me feeling like I was going out of my mind. I stopped it, and my doctor agreed. I would hate to tell people, “Hey, I’m skinny now, but I’ve lost my mind!” I’ll rather struggle along with it. Of course it’s supposed to be harder to lose weight with PCOS, but I’d rather be in my right mind, whatever that is.
I have been losing weight the past few weeks, but I guess I’ve been afraid to update my tracker because in the past when I’ve updated it, I’ve had to change it back. I guess I’ve been trying to figure out if this weight loss is going to stick. I don’t even know how much weight I want to lose and when I want to lose it by. I just know that I have a lot to lose, and I want to lose it.
