Since 15I was diagnosed with pcos/pcod since i was 15 years old. I thought there was something wrong with me because I had hirsutism. I thought i might be a guy on the inside and a girl on the outside. My mother entertained me on this thought ( I had already reached puberty, and she decided NOT to remind me of this).
i went to the drs. they put me on birth control pills for it, it was pcos and thus my hirsutism.
I managed it well until I got to college. I binged and NOT purged there. I put on 40 pounds. at age 15 i went from 184 to 135. so now i was up to 175. I got married had kids. I lost all but 11 pounds after my son was born. got pregnant after 3 months pospartum. I lost all but 15 pounds after they were born. then I gained 20# in 2 or the 3 weeks. and the weight just escalated out of no where. up and up and up.
now here I am at 241.4 and trying to lose slowly but surely. its a rough and hard battle. (i'm down from 248. my goal is to get down to 240 by dec. 31, pray for me!).
so thats my story and i'm sticking to it.
I have been on metformin for almost 2-3 weeks right now. Although, being sick has stalled my progress. but i have no doubt that in a day or so, I can resume exercising again. and my weightloss will hit 20pounds soon. I am very looking forward to it.
