Inability or hard time losing weight despite best efforts (and me inevitability giving up because I'm just "supposed to be" this big from now on)/insulin resistance
Infertility/Little to no periods
Extremely oily acne prone skin (I've been feeling 16 again in that regard)
Strange pelvic pain
Did you hear the "lightbulb" moment?
Sooooo because I was on day 42 when I went to the OB, I was "induced" with oral progesterone. Apparently, not only is PCOS annoying, the no period thing can give you cancer. Scary. So because I had water weight and PMS I gained again this week, 1.3. Ugh. Not happy. On the bright side I was started on Metformin for the insulin resistance, with the expectation of it helping me lose at least 10 lbs, and get my lady parts functioning better. So hopefully, I'll start seeing losses in the weeks to come. "Clomid" was also bantered about--because of the difficulty that comes with getting pregnant and this disease. So please, if you suffer from PCOS and have had to endure any of this, please connect with me, I'd love to pick your brain.
Keep up the water intake.
Keep moving, now that I'm back to work and off vacation.
Get this PCOS problem under control, and start losing weight again!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day, and has a wonderful week to come! And many thanks to all of my Mamavation Sistas that have been supporting me through this craziness. You all are such a blessing!
