Hi everyone! I have PCOS and am trying to lose some weight after the birth of DS. I lost a good few kilos initially but just can't seem to get rid of the 10kgs I want to lose to get to my previous weight. I have been working out with a PT, playing club netball and eating Lite and Easy, its just not working any more!
I put on weight TTC, I came of the Pill (Dianne) and went on clomid then Pregnyl to get pregnant. I put on about 5 kilos while doing this, and previously my weight hadn't shifted much for years. This, plus the weight I gained when pregnant has left me about 10kgs away from my starting weight (62 kilos). I'm not diabetic (just had a BT come back within the 'normal' range). Before sending me off for the BT, the Dr suggested trying Metformin as some PCOS patients have had success with losing weight on it.
Has anyone else had success with Metformin for weight loss even if they have 'normal' insulin levels? Also, after a two year break i am worried about putting weight on when going on the Pill. Has anyone experienced a weight change (I am starting it tonight..!!)
