Thank you Babyby2012. I have a friend who keeps talking about Hunry Girl as well, so I was going to check that out. Both my husband and I were doing good at one point eating at home and then started house renovations and kinda fell off the wagon. We are getting back into the habit, though, I always love new recipes to get in the mix.

You are definately not alone. I feel exactly the same some days. My biggest advice about the food is to eat the things you used to eat but in a healthier way. I still eat pizza, chicken gyros and taco's. I just make it myself with healthy ingredients. www.hungry-girl.com has tons of low calorie recipe swaps. Just click on "chew the right thing".
Thank you very much. I appreciate the kind words and what you have experienced. I'm really just going to try and chalk this up to a crap day and keep being active and really try more with my diet. Thank you again for the cheer up. =o)
You are not alone in the not feeling "pretty and girly" because of this disease. I've been diagnosed for a little over 5 years or so and I felt a lot better when I was put on my meds. It has taken me a long time to accept the fact that pregnancy would be very difficult, both conception and carrying, that I really gave up hope. However, my doctor says that it may take more time and effort than other women but that it is not as hopeless as I had thought. My thinking also is that because we have to work so hard at concieving that we appreciate the pregnancy and children even more.
As far as weight loss it is possible but it is hard and people with PCOS don't lose as fast as everyone else even working twice as hard, I learned that the hard way. Just don't give up and remember that we are all here to support you!

Hello, I am 26 yrs old and recently Diagnosed with PCOS while TTC. Mine is not the diabetic kind. I finished my first cycle of chlomid and have been using a fertility monitor as well, only to read that it may not work for people with PCOS and chlomid can make the results wonky.
Most of my friends are either not trying or already have kids, so I don't really have anyone to talk to it about. My husband is very understanding and sweet, but I don't really know how to explain it to him. This thing aboslutely sucks and makes me feel completely helpless. I don't like the extra hair and I have always dealt with my weight, so knowing this makes it harder to lose doesn't help either.
I hate whining, but today I just feel like I might explode because I feel like such a failure. I have been getting more active lately, but I am still finding it very hard to change my eating habits. Which in turn makes me think about why if I would like to start a family so bad can I not just change my diet for it. Then that leads to me thinking I am weak and feel bad and then eat some more sweets.
I really wish all you ladies luck in dealing with this awful thing. Like how unpretty can this disease make you feel. Not only can you have wonky periods, but weight gain with it being harder to lose, acne, hair loss, excessive hair in the wrong places, and trouble conceiving. Makes you feel all warm and girly inside right? All right. I am done now. Thanks for reading.
