Welcome to the team. I'm short too.. 4ft 11in. I have been struggling with my weight since childhood. At my highest weight 218 is around the time I was told I had PCOS... I think that was in 2007. I realized I did have some of the symptoms.. adult acne, facial hair(nothing that Sally Hansen hair remover cream can't take care of) and during that time I had one episode of a period that didn't end for a month. I became so weak. My doctor put me on the birth control pill which stopped the bleeding. I only took them the one cycle.. Luckily, my period went back to normal after that. I have been a yo-yo dieter since then. Every time I lose 30 lbs I'd gain it back because I'd go back to my old eating habits. I hope to keep it off this time. I whole heartedly believe a low carb diet helps me. I feel better and have less cramping during my period. I am more active and enjoy going to the gym and Zumba class. I had an ovarian cyst in 2011 and it dissolved on its own. I have a small uterine fibroid that doesn't bother me at all. My parent's are both diabetic and I refuse to let heredity get to me. I am in the clear of it. Another reason low carb works for me.
Best of luck to you. You can do it! :)
