I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Adriane and I'm 23 years old. I live in Montana with my husband (and childhood sweetheart!). I was just diagnosed this week with PCOS and have started a metformin treatment plan.
I came to discover my PCOS due to research into other medical problems I am dealing with. While plugging in my list of bizaar symptoms online, PCOS kept coming up like a big red flashing light, so I got it checked and sure enough. Unfortunatly, PCOS is not the culprit causing my other medical problems. I have an un-diagnosed muscular disorder that has baffled every doctor I have seen since it began. It makes it very hard (read: impossible) to exercise, so as you can imagine, losing weight is particularly difficult for me.
Although the metformin seems to be helping already (minus the aweful side effects), I know there is still a really long hard journey ahead of me, and I hope that this community will help me stay motivated and dedicated to my goals.
I hope at this time to lose about 48 lbs by winter, and another 40 after that. Ultimately I would like to get back down to 160lbs. Although that is not considered my healthy weight according to BMI indexes, that is the weight at which I always felt most healthy and happy. It is my goal to get back not only to the healthy, but even more so to the happy!
Cant wait to get started and I hope I can be a good help and support to all the rest of you as well!
Thanks and God Bless!
