My name is Sarah and I am 35 years old. I was diagnosed with PCOS in 1996-97 somewhere along in that time frame. I have struggled with my weight since graduating from high school. I have two fabulous children that are absolute miracles. Currently I am at 215 lbs and this depresses me because I always said I would absolutely not let myself get above 200. But here I am. In 2004 I managed to get down to 160 which is my goal now. I felt great at that weight and feel like it is an attainable goal. In 2006 my husband got very sick and we discovered that he had a severely leaking heart valve. This required open heart surgery and a very lengthy recovery process. This is when I lost control of my eating and exercising habits that had maintained the 160 lbs. At the beginning of this year I have decided to regain control of my body. I joined the local gym and committed to daily exercise. My diet has never really been a problem. I manage to eat mostly healthy foods most of the time. Anyway, my sister sent me info on this website and it looks like a great way to get some support and track my progress. Thanks for having me.
