Hi SPers,

I am 24 years old an approximately 2 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS. However, despite all the reading I have done about PCOS, I am sometimes still so terribly confused.

When I was in high school I would frequently tell my doctor that I was having irregular periods, and his response was that it was normal and probably due to my weight. My weight was due to my unhealthy eating and exercising habits. My acne was just because I was a teenager. And, my excess hair was just genetics.

At the age of 17 I finally went to an OB/GYN who swore I was lying about my whether I was sexually active. After finding out I wasn't pregnant, she then said my irregular period was due to my weight and prescribed me progesterone so that I got my period. I was also prescribed levothyroxine but taken off of it a month later.

At the age of 22 I went to another OB/GYN, due to me moving, and was diagnosed with PCOS after a few lab tests and a ultrasound. I had no cysts and my doctor said that the inconclusive results of the tests she had requested pointed to me having PCOS. I still question her methods, but after reading so many things online, I'm pretty sure PCOS is an appropriate diagnosis.

So now, I'm here at a 24 year old so tired of being obese (ugh, that word still hurts as much as it did the first day I saw it on my medical records). I want so badly to lose this weight and keep it off. I've lost 9 pounds so far, but I keep getting scared about the road ahead.

I'm scared of:

Hitting that plateau
Gaining it all back
Never meeting my goal(s)
Trying to run again

I'm hoping I don't give up...I don't want to give up this time...I may just need a little motivation and encouragement sometimes. I'm going to do this because I know in the end the results are going to be amazing!

I wish each of you in this group the best of luck. I'm standing right beside you hoping we reach our individual goals together.
