I've had PCOS for a few years now and I've been doing some research and I think that it's part of the reason that I'm struggling with losing weight. I went to my Dr on Saturday and she comfirmed my suspicions. She put me on glucophage to stabalize my hormones and hopefully boost my chances of weight lose. I'm so sick of yo-yoing up and down with my weight and now I'm at my highest weight ever.

The other part is me...my husband has been dropping the weight with little to no effort and not even exercising. I'm happy for him! I'm just so discouraged because I've been trying so hard with little to no results.

Today is my fresh start...I'm going to push forward and try harder. I'm on track with tracking my food so far today. I just need to get to my basement and hop onto one of my pieces of exercise equipment. I'd also like to get some strength training done today.

I did really good yesterday. I was a little high on calories, but I was able to do 30 min on my recumbent bike. :o) I did 2 min of Bicep curls.

    I am sorry you are feeling discouraged. You have done the research on PCOS and in discussing with your doctor have discovered somethings that may help you. Hoping the medicine helps you get going in the right direction. Just keep going & don't ever give up!

    Comparing ourselves to others...we all do it, but we all shouldn't! Your body will not react the same as someone else's, so focus on what you know you need to do and leave it there. Knowing about the PCOS gives your more information about how your body may respond, so take that info and run with it...literally! LOL Track that food and move that body, girlie! I'm right there with you tracking again and moving again. And let's not leave the most important key out of this equation...Philip. 4:13 (through CHRIST)! Praying for you!
