Hi. I am new to this team. I have been on Sparkpeople, but never thought to look for a PCOS team. I am really glad to find you guys. It is a relief to be able to talk to women who are going throught the same issues.
Hi, my name is Stacy and I am 24 yrs old. I was diagnosed when I was 18 but I've never talked to anyone else with PCOS before. Just nutritionists and doctors. This is pretty cool, hopefully we can all help each other out!
Welcome Kaleigh! You are so young to be dealing with this yucky stuff, but at least you ARE young enough to make some changes NOW, so good for you!!!
Let me tell you, I never thought I could lose this weight. I thought it was a lost cause. I cannot believe that I've been able to take off nearly 45 lbs already and I KNOW I can get to my goal. It might take me longer than someone else, but I know I can do it! SparkPeople is great for that. Use it to your advantage. There is so much support here that it's touching!! And I LOVE having a PCOS group where people REALLY understand the struggles of losing weight, since it IS different for us than for other people.
Keep posting and be sure to ask for help if you need it!
Hi all! My name is Kaleigh and I am 21. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was just 15.. It's been a battle with my weight ever since! I began seeing a nutritionist for some help at the beginning of this month. A woman I work with suggested SP, so here I am! I have successfully lost 10lbs in 4 weeks (very excited!!!) My goal is to get to a healthy weight so that when we are ready to try and get pregnant we can concentrate on the real task at hand and I cant blame my weight!! Cant wait to meet everyone!
Starting weight - 202 Current Weight - 189 (10/18) Long term goal - 140 (by Sept 2008) Short term goal - 170 (by Thanksgiving 2007)
