Hey guys. I've been in and out for quite sometime for a number of reasons but my recent discovery has pushed me back into the weight loss realm.
What's going on....
Well, it turns out I have PCOS. Hubby and I have been actively trying to get pregnant for a few months now and with no luck. I was pretty much doing everything possible from temp tracking to cervical mucous tracking to peeing on an ovalution stick every single day. Honestly, I was so sick of tracking things I thought I was going to scream. It wasn't until I missed a period for another 60 days that i called my OB/GYN and talked to him. He had me do some blood tests and my levels came back a few points above normal as well as my weight gain over the years. After further discussions I was diagnosed with PCOS.
I have to admit that I feel a little relieved to finally have an idea about what's going on with me but at the same I am feeling a little discouraged. How have I managed to hold on to this weight for so long? I really need to be about 40 pounds lighter than what I am, realistically, but I'm giving myself short term goals to get there.
My husband and I had a great sit down and we came up with a weight loss game plan. I told him that I could not do this alone and he agreed that I won't. So, here are today on our way to 30-40 weight loss with a baby waiting at the end.
