UPDATE 5/22/16:
PCOS ruined my 20s! I was diagnosed in 2006 when my weight shot up out of nowhere. I went from 200 lbs all the way up to 300 lbs! In a 10 year time span (my 20s), I could lose about 40 to 50 lbs at a time but it always came back. It was very frustrating! In 2015, I decided I was fed up and ready to lose this weight for good! High protein, low carbs, low sugar and cardio! That's what is working for me. Also, lots of water and eating smaller amounts of food.

My long term goal is to get down to a healthy weight and be consistent with exercise and healthy eating! To me, it's not about being skinny to look good. It's all about living a long time! Living a healthy, active life, And enjoying every minute of it!

I'm glad i have my husband Jonathon, family and friends to support me. Anyone else wanna be friends, just add me!
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me!

    **Sorry for being so tardy in welcoming you**

    emoticon Welcome to the 300+team. 300 is such a BIG number but if we persevere, focus and motivate one another we can reach our goals!
    We have so much of life ahead of us and it is so much better to work on ourselves and reach for our goals.
    We can do it-- we are worth the effort!
    All we can do is take it one day, one bite, one pound at a time.
    I am looking forward to supporting you in your quest for better health and a happier future.
