Climbing out of a Rut

Monday, June 03, 2013

Lately I have been in a rut. I have been to the doctors office and now a reproductive doctor. My husband and I have been trying to have children for 5 years now. I found out that I have PCOS, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is correctable but of course they all tell me the same thing that I need to lose a lot of weight ( uh, duh, I know that). I really hate the BMI, I think that it needs to be revised. What if a person has more muscle on them then fat. They don't take that into consideration. When I was younger, I was really fit, I even had a six pack. So, I still have a lot of that muscle, thank God. It has been four months and I have lost 20lbs. I am very proud of myself for this accomplishment but for almost 2 weeks I have hit a hard plateau. I have decided to hire a personal trainer at the gym that is my second home, practically. It took me a while to find the right one because the others I just did not have a connection. I am excited to continue on my weight loss journey and spark up the fire inside me to continue pursuing my dream to have a family one day.

    I know your struggle. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years to conceive to no avail. It is very frustrating. You are on the right track, and that is awesome that you are working so hard. The last thing anyone wants to hear is it will happen when you least expect it, that's what they keep telling me... but all we can do is keep working hard and keep on praying! I will be praying for you too! emoticon emoticon emoticon
