I feel that way, too, a lot. It's like my body gets "stubborn" and wants to hold on to everything, but then when it finally "let's go", it all goes off in a rush for a while, then back to "holding on"!
Don't give up!!! Even if the healthy behaviours aren't enough to manage the underlying Insulin Resistance (which is what's causing all this trouble), it does still help! If you're not on Metformin yet, you may need it to kick out of the rut. Many docs will prescribe Met automatically for PCOS, but if your doc it hesitant, then showing him your food and exercise journals might make him re-consider. Remember, too, that minimum dosage for PCOS is 1,500 mg/day (you have to work up gradually to that, though).
One last thing - I find that the Sparks nutrition plan is a little high in carbs for us, and their suggested menu has a few too many processed carbs. Try making their suggested low-end for carbs your high-end (same range, just shifted down), and change the menu so that the carbs are all "good" carbs and not so many "boxed" ones.
Hang in there!!! Keep up the FANTASTIC work!!!
