Hello, My name is Amy. I'm a 35 yr old married mother of an 11 yr old, soon to be 9 yr old and a 6 mo old. I was diagnosed with PCOS and Insulin Resistance in 2006, prescribed 1500 mg of Metformin and exercise. That worked well until I became pregnant last year. I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, put on a strict diet and a new medicine. After giving birth to my daughter I thought nursing would help get me back in shape as it did so many other women. Nope, not me. I gained 30 more pounds AFTER giving birth. My PCOS symptoms came back full force (weight gain, intense sugar cravings, anxiety, and the dreaded cystic acne). After 5 months I gave up nursing, got back on Metformin and the birth control pill. After about 6 weeks time the only thing that has changed is the acne. It's been SO much harder to control my PCOS this time. SO I found Spark and I'm hoping to find other people like me that I can learn from and connect with. :) I have figured out that I need to cut out all sugar, processed foods, yogurt, and white flour. The biggest challenges for me is the planning and breaking old habits. If I don't have a meal plan in place for the week I set myself up for failure. The smaller challenges are making meals that everyone can eat since my husband and children don't have these issues and finding recipes that don't require breaking the bank because they require uncommon and expensive ingredients. I hope that being a part of this community will help get me going in the right direction!
