Hanging out with a gf of mine is doing me no good on my diet. I dont know how she keeps the weight off the way she eats, all junk really. If I ate like she does I would be 500lbs. I need to get myself back on track but it is hard with others around that eat only junk and if I am hungry that is what I have to eat also when with her.

I have been looking into other diets/life changes like vegan, paleo. Dont really understand the paleo dont know if I could really do either. With PCOS I really need to find a diet that works with me. a diet that gets this damn weight off

Last night went to the drive in. Have not been to a drive in in prob 20 years. I had my son sit on my lap but he keep sliding off bc of my big belly. I look like I am 9 months pregnant. I hate being like this, i never in a million years thought that I would be this heavy and it would be so hard to take off. I wish that I didnt have PCOS so It would be easier to lose weight and I wouldnt feel like such a failure.

    Hanging out with my sister is a lot like you hanging out with your gf, bad influence on me! I don't want to avoid hanging out with her but I do stand my ground more often no matter how much she ribs at me. She doesn't change her eating just because I'm around and I don't expect her to. It's kind of like being a recovering druggie and hanging out with drug users, in a way. It takes a lot of willpower to stick to your plan and if you're not strong enough you have to stay away from them.

    Anyway, I hope you have the strength to stick to it around your gf and that you find a healthy food plan that works for you!

    I know it's hard to skip the junk food when people around you are indulging, but don't assume they're "getting away with it." Your friend may be slim but that doesn't mean she's healthy. Anyway, it's not about her body; it's about yours.

    It may mean packing your own healthy snacks to take with you when you go out with her, or choosing places that offer healthier options. Or doing things that don't have food involved at all, like taking your son to the playground and playing with him. Most of all, it's about learning to say no to what tastes good but isn't good for you. Believe me, I know it's hard, and I don't always do it either, but I try.

    One of the things I love about the food tracker is that I can enter a food before I eat it to figure out what effect it will have on my daily calories. You may find it useful to decide the night before what you plan to eat and enter it into your tracker so you can see if your plan meets all your nutritional requirements.

    I know PCOS makes it harder to lose weight, but so do a lot of other medical conditions. Find people on here who are dealing successfully with the same challenges, and ask them how they cope.

    I believe you can do this. I wish I had a magic answer for you, but it really is a matter of choices.
