Great info, Gabby. I have had to live gluten-free for 20 years now. I am now completely grain free because my body is identifying grains as glutens...

DYKT my fiance has finally decided to diet with me. Even though I need to be low carb, he has agreed to change his diet to match mine (no more cooking two meals for dinner!). I was so psyched. I think I may be able to make it through low carb with his support.

I am HOOKED on The Sims 3.
I'm benched from ballroom dancing and hot yoga at the moment, and I miss it!
I am really happy with the progress from the low carb eating.
I'm a Christian who is in a season of not going to church much.
I believe I've been healed from fibromyalgia through prayer.

I just have to say that everyone here totally ROCKS!!!

DYKT...
- I had 2 different doctors tell me that PCOS didn't exist {luckily I have a smart doc now!}
- I love to read, sew, cross-stitch, and anything crafty which makes exercise not my best friend
- I have 2 dogs and 2 cats
- I believe that the biggest shelf in the house is the floor
- Housework is also not my best friend {see love for reading, etc. above}
- I just stole a skip-it from my nieces so I can use it for exercise!!

DYKT - I am completely blown away today. I normally do body measurements once a month but I joined a new challenge team and they require it weekly. Needless to say, within 2 weeks, I've lost 0.5 inches off waist, hips, arm and a full inch off my thigh!!!
This has never happened before and I believe it is due to the mixture of meds that I'm on that finally have me balanced out (has taken 5 years to get here but yippee!!!), as well as staying focused as much as possible on exercise and eating right.

DYKT - I hope that all of you find this same balance!

I hate housework
I love to read-but didn't discover this until I was in my 20s
I want to do a cleanse or detox
I have a hard time remembering to take my metaformin
my husband and I have an appointment to see a new fertility specialist next week and I am super excited because unlike my last Dr. they don't require I be below a certain bmi to be treated!

- I'm within 4 lbs of my 60+ weight loss goal
- Working in Addictions has transferred hugely into my weight loss knowledge efforts, especially surrounding my eating habits
- Zumba is seriously the most fun workout...
- But boxing is my true love.
- Hubby and I are now actively trying to conceive!

Lost 65lbs in 15 months to get healthy and in top shape to try to get pregnant, and succeeded! Had our first baby in February 2013!

I only gained 32lbs in my pregnancy (and immediately lost half within a few weeks of his birth). April 1st is my full restart date.

- I am 34 years old, with no children
- After a year of constant nausea, weight gain, acne and other symptoms, trips to multiple specialists and gall bladder surgery, I received a PCOS diagnosis.
- I've been under treatment for 3 months, and my symptoms are almost gone.
- However, losing weight seems impossible no matter how I watch my diet and how much I exercise.
- I am getting married this October and the closer it gets the more hopeless I feel about my weight.

- I am 45 years old with a 7 year miracle baby.
- I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2001, after gaining over 150 pounds over a 10 year period.
- I was put on metformin and lost 90 pounds when I found out I was pregnant.
- I put the weight back on after the baby born.
- I was told last fall that my PCOS blood work came back negative, so I no longer need medicine.
- I am at a loss of how to get the weight off and be healthy for my little girl.
- I would love another baby, but with my age and weight, asking for another miracle baby is ...

I went vegan to lower my cholesterol, and stayed vegan because of the animals.
I have been suffering from PCOS symptoms since I was 12, and just now diagnosed at age 24.
I am hopeless addicted to sugary carbs.
I hate shopping for clothes/shoes, but love to look at appliances!
I cry when I see people run because I am jealous they can do it and I can't.
My biggest dream in the whole wide world is to run the San Antonio Rock-N-Roll Half Marathon (but can't even run for a minute straight).

I am new to the team
I am 35 years old
Reah Evanier is not my real name
I was not diagnosed until my late 20's
I breathed a sigh of relief when I was diagnosed - because previous doctors had brushed my abdominal pain off as hypochondria
I suffer from social phobia
I have NEVER been in a relationship
I LOVE to cook - but hate to do the dishes....
I love avocados (which is good because they help with weight loss)
I hate cranberries
I was also diagnosed with ADHD late in life
I might be autistic
My favorite craft activity is Origami
oranges are my favorite fruit
I will never get tired of seafood
I would like to run a marathon one day
I have never smoked or done drugs
I find tracking my calories helps not because I tend to eat too much but rather too little otherwise
I've been practicing belly dancing when no one else is looking
I hate slapstick and find the videos of people being hurt on Youtube horrifying and not funny at all
I talk too much .....

Hi all,

DYKT...

I'm 27

I was diagnosed with PCOS at 20 and was told that if I didn't have children in the next 5 years, I never would. I was also offered a hysterectomy as a solution to the excessive bleeding I was suffering from. I count myself lucky that I turned this offer down no matter how tempting it was at the time.

I have been pregnant despite all doctors informing me that it was impossible. (My little girl, Hope, had to be born just over halfway gestation due to health issues not related to PCOS and is now watching over my partner and I from another place) She has given me the push to get fitter and in better shape.

I want to treat everyday as though it's my last and dream like I'll live forever.

I'm always willing to help a friend in need.

I am now a mother to a beautiful, healthy miracle baby girl!
I learned that taking Metformin can actually help my milk supply, and so even though I have PCOS (I learned that women with PCOS sometimes have difficulty breastfeeding), I am so far able to breastfeed my baby.

I'm new to sparkpeople and was recently diagnosed with pcos.
I've been married for 2 1/2 years and my husband and I met online 10 years ago.
We have 3 parakeets who talk all the time.
I also HATE doing dishes.
I want a baby really badly and get very emotional whenever I think about it and my Dr prescribed metaformin but I'm afraid to start taking it because of the side eddects I've read about.

-I was a bit bummed by my lack of weight loss last week, but I didn't gain, so I should be happy..right?
-I started adding in exercise.
-I realized how OUT Of shape I am! LOL!
-I'm loving metaformin! Holy cow! I feel awesome!
-I had sugar for the first time since starting my prediabetic diet. I broke down and had one of the itty bitty mini blizzards from dairy queen. Holy crap, I had a sugar hang over! NO lie! I had a headache and everything! I wont do that again! :D
-Its another snow day here in texas, so my kids are home! I love this! :D
