Hey there gals. :)

I knew I had ovarian cysts at a fairly young age but I didn't know about PCOS until I got my blood sugar checked recently. It was in the pre-diabetes range and the nurse asked me if I had regular periods. I haven't in many many years and she told me about PCOS. I have about 75% of the symptoms I've read about, I just had no idea it was PCOS.

The most troubling to me of the side effects is the hair growth on my face. I shave it off and it's horribly embarrassing for me.

I really need to see a doctor about PCOS because I have now read about all the complications from it and the risk of cancer. I'm putting it off right now both because I'm going on a trip out of state in a week and because, well, I have no insurance and am scared how much even the local sliding-scale fee clinic may charge. Wish me luck, and it's great to meet all of you.

Goals:

260 - Lost my first 9 pounds! ...DONE! 8/2/10
249 - One 'notch' on doctor's scales down! ...DONE! 9-17-10
239 - 30 pounds down!
220 - 100 pounds from goal!
199 - Finished with the 200s!
175 - Reached BMI 30 and left the severely obese category!
150 - Left the obese category... now just overweight!
145 - High end of 'normal' weight!
129 - Weight I reached on my old crash diet!
120 - Goal weight!
