Welcome to the team! :)
Looking forward to getting to know you around the boards.
Hey there and welcome!
You're in the right place. While it all may seem a bit confusing the more you poke around the more you find. I started because of the recipe database about a year ago and now I'm using it for nurtition and excercise tracking. There are also some great groups out there for PCOS and other purposes (30somethings, military etc.).
I am a grad student as well. I haven't been at my current school but my prior grad school had a great gym with indoor track, excercise classes etc. Maybe your school has one too?
Sounds like you have a great history with excercise, where as I've been sporatic at best but it's a very important part of keeping your weight and PCOS in check.
Good luck to you and feel free to email me any time.
Dx PCOS - 4/2008
Byetta- 5mcg X 2
Hi there. This is the first time I'm taking a minute to join a group and post something- so here goes.
I am 33 and I just was diagnosed on Friday (1/28/11). I have read a lot and I don't really know where to start. I've had suspicions about having PCOS back in Dec (when I initially joined SP) but I guess I needed to wait until I heard for sure.
Now after reading everything, my head is spinning a bit from so much information out there and I'm not really sure where to start!
Originally from Ny and I was a dependable gym rat. I was at the gym at least 4 times a week and had lost about 20 lbs. Now that I have moved to PA, with no gym, I took up running (2009) but stopped mid summer ('10) and have done nothing since. I don't really know many ppl in my area, my parents are deceased (both cancer) and I have no family in the states. I'm a FT grad student this semester and I am currently unemployed. I'd love to find myself and get on track to a life that I'd like to have.
I'm not sure if this is the place for me, but I recognize that reaching out is something that I need to do even if I am terribly shy about opening up to ppl who don't know me.
Additionally, I haven't a CLUE as to how this site works I find it super confusing!! So if you've read this far...please show me the way! lol.
I welcome friendships, a good ear, good conversation and more information about PCOS that makes sense.
::Whew:: that's a lot! Thanks for reading!
