I, and many others, understand your pain and frustration. I wish I could give you a magic formula to make it all go away, but PCOS will be a struggle of ours for the rest of our lives. I, too, suffer from thyroid problems which makes weight loss nearly impossible. There are imbalances in your body that need to be corrected before your body will be willing to shed any extra pounds. 1. your thyroid levels will need to be perfect, and on the low side (TSH of around 1 is ideal). 2. PCOS causes difficulty with digestion of easy sugars. Our bodies turn into hoarders. Its a long complicated process that can't be totally explained in one post. But, the best thing you can do for yourself is learn about hypothyroidism and PCOS so you can demand correct treatment and start on the right diet. Low glycemic tends to work best. (I didn't have any luck eating clean because it still allows for grains.)
if your husband can see that you are trying your best to lose weight, he needs to support you, not tell you he doesn't find you attractive (I had to deal with this with my own husband as well). You need to atleast find someone to be your SUPPORT system. Sometimes places like this are great as a suppport system because we've been there.
I hope you find the answers you are looking for. Don't give up hope!!!
