Welcome Stevie! I hear Stevie and I think Landslide (Stevie Nicks) so no problems with gender from me! Women with PCOS often have a child, sometimes even two, before things get really bad, so it's not unheard of. You can get checked out for cysts, but it's almost not really worth it, you should be eating low-GI anyway, it's good for you. Glad to have you here, feel free to bug if you have questions!

Welcome! I am "vertically challenged" as well, and that really is a reality that there is no room for much "junk in the trunk" @ our height (I am not even 5 ft! 4 ft, 10.5 in.). I know I weighed 190 lbs. but am pretty sure I was at least 200 lbs. before I started this journey in Feb. 2010. I officially started losing weight in Nov. 2009 w/my diagnosis of hypertension, but for sure once I was told I have type 2 diabetes, that was it for me and that was in Jan. 2010. I joined Spark in Febl. 2010 and to this day cannot understand why I waited, but that's the past.
My message is one of hope. I am now 100 lbs. Again, @ 4 ft. 10.5, that's a good weight for my frame. It takes lots of strength, courage and deternination but together we all have it. Couldn't do it alone!
HUGS adn sorry this is so long. I just understand how hard it is, esp. being short! (UGH I hate that word!)
I have a 3 year old daughter she is my world and reason for waking up in the morning, I have been married for 4 years this past december. We both are overweight and when we got together we just became even more unhealthy because we just ate whatever we wanted im ashamed to say. My daughter loves fruits and veggies and i love vegging out with her. Since I was a very young teenager i had always had unwanted body and face hair i thought well my genes were hairy, wasnt until last week when i watched a special on pcos that i realized i have many of the symptoms. my doctor always said i couldnt have children but i have my daughter, i dont know if i have cysts but i know its very hard for me to lose weight and im hairy and i hate it, and as cliche as it sounds i hate the hair so much that i would eat to try and focus on something else but it became more difficult to focus on something else when every other day i have to shave my face!! then i had a bigger problem i was overweight im 5foot exactly and i weight 230 pounds i hate being fat, every month i tell my husband we are going to do this for sarah and for ourselves because i dont want to die and then that little monster in my mind that says mmmm icecream sounds great attacks me i have a horrible sweet tooth, but i feel i really have got to kill that monster and live a long healthy life monster your going down!!
