SO, i guess i should be happy, but actually have mixed feelings here. so, i've lost only 6 lbs since i went to the dr. and that means since last weighed in on spark, im really only down 3 lbs. which is okay. a loss is a loss right?
well, bc of my loss of 6 lbs since i've been to her last (which was in sept) she doesn't think that i should go on met. now, this is great news on the one hand, but i feel like it would just help a little more so i can get over this slump. but, we'll see how i do the next few months.i just feel like i should've lost 10-12 lbs in the last 2months...that isn't unreasonable. its not like i wanted to lose 20 lbs. that's only a 5-6 lb lost a month. and all it is is 6 lbs.
well, just wanted to update and share the great news, that just happens to be a little sad for me at the same time. thank you guys for reading this! :)

i second the advice about extended release. i couldn't take the regular but am fine on the extended. and for what reason i don't know, but not all doctors offer the extended release. so, be sure to ask about it...

best of luck!

Metformin ER (Extended Release) has been much gentler on my digestive tract.

I have been diagnosed with pcos since 2000. i was put on met back in 2004 to help regulate my cycle and lose weight. i lost 30 lbs while taking it. we then concieved with the help of clomid in 2006. i haven't been on met since we conceived. i've gained with the pregnancy and then lost then conceived again (without anything..we were very lucky) and then gained again now i've lost 40 lbs total since my journey began (before i started sparkpeople this last time:0) however, i am a little worried due to the side effects. are there any thoughts on this? any suggestions. i know that i will lose and it will be fine it's just that i'm worried about, more specifically, the side effects of my digestive tract. is there anyone here who has been taking it long term and seen any of the effects? liver, kidney? etc? i need to do something at this point. trying to make a long story short, i have increased my workouts to around 12 hours a week now, that's up from around 8 hours a week. i've seen a difference in clothing, just not on the scale. this is frustrating. as you all know. thanks for any suggestions.
