I have PCOS and weight has been a major issue for most of my life. I am now 30 years old, and being a nurse I am all too aware of the health implications of being overweight so have decided to tackle this weight issue of mine once and for all.
I have tried many of the commercial diets with moderate sucess, but found most of them expensive, difficult to maintain and hard to incorperate into my busy family and working life. After doing some reading and speaking to one of the dieticians at work I have decided that a simple low GI eating plan is probably the best option for me.
On weighing myself today I was 112.7 kg
My initial goal is to be under 100kg and to loose enough weight to be able to manage some of my PCOS symptoms, regulate my cycle and ovulate so that we can concieve our much wanted third child!!!! At the end of the day though, I am not so concerned with what the scales say, I just want to be healthy and be able to instil good eating habits in my children so that they don't follow the same path that I have. Also, I want to be able to shop in the regular section of clothes stores rather than being resticted to choosing from the small selection of 'big girls' clothes that are available.....
So, I would love some support on this journey! Please join in and share your own stories
