"When you want your goal badly enough, feel the intensity of it, let it fuel your waking thoughts and actions, let it influence you in all ways possible and let nothing get in the way of achieving it" -Kimberly Adamson
! I can tell you also that you'll find the more weight you lose the more the symptoms of PCOS will go away. At least they did for me. About 5 years ago I lost around 65 pounds and I couldn't believe the difference it made. Unfortunately, I gained most of it back, and with it came the same old symptoms back again. This time 'round once I lose it, I don't plan on gaining it back though. Good luck!

Hello, my name is Shannon. It has been over 6 years since I was first diagnosed with PCOS and I have battled with the military to get help for it ever since. Finally I found an amazing doctor who listened to my concerns and has given me a referal to see a PCOS Specialist at the local military hospital. The doctor has ordered a ton of tests (which I am still going through on a weekly basis) and desided to put me on Provera to help me have my cycle. Before seeing this specialist it had been over a year since I had my last period. I had always been irregular do to the PCOS, but that was taking it to a new level. Since being on the Provera I had my first cycle and as funny as it sounds couldn't have been more excited...
Back in Oct. I had reached a all time high as far as weight was concerned. I was 320 pounds and wearing a size 26. At that point I desided something had to be done about my weight and started watching what I was eatting. Now it is Feb. and I am at 292 pounds (and a size 22). I am so proud that I managed to lose so much weight for the first time in my life and am now more determind then ever to stick to my goals of weight loss as well as improved health. I am looking to meet new friends who know the struggles we face with PCOS and weight loss so that we can lend support to each other.
