    You're right there. I have battled big time with PCOS since I turned 20. Before that, I was a comfy size 12 with no effort. It's changed so many things...

    hi oozzle., I'm glad to see you focusing on yourself for your own health and wellbeing. I don't know anything about pocs, but since you seem to be eating healthy, perhaps your portions need to be smaller. ? Yoga might be a form of exercise that will suit you, or tai-chi? I think that is a gentle exercise method. I want to encourage you to keep looking forward, many hugs, marie.

    It seems you have been given some great advice and are already making steps forward, particularly with the healthy eating and looking at the next step.

    As others have suggested - start with gp and get your bloods monitored in regards to your pcos. See a physio as they may give you exercises to help cope or strengthen up parts of the body to aide being able to move a little more or show you how to strap things.

    I would suggest a stretching/light movement class to get the muscles and ligaments prepped before doing anything further - you might even be able to get something on a dvd to save money. If everything starts to gel together a little better for you then perhaps an aqua aerobics class - keep in mind that there are varying levels that you could do. It's generally a lot gentler on the joints.
