Ok, I’ve always been kinda over weight, but the last few years its gotten really bad. I went from a size 12 to a size 16, and it’s gotten to the point where I hate shopping. (Good for my wallet, bad for self image lol) I’ve tried exercising regularly, watching what I eat, cutting out soft drinks, taking stupid diet supplements… I’ve done everything I could think of. Usually I would do the same thing as my best friend or mom, they would lose like 15 pounds, I would be lucky if I lost 5. I got to where I had pretty much given up on losing weight, nothing was working. I was hiding in sweat pants and baggy shirts. I hated leaving the house. I didn’t like seeing people I haven’t seen in a long time because I didn’t want them to know how big I had gotten.
Today, I went back to the doctor. It’s official, I have polycystic ovaries. I’ve suspected that for a long time because both of my sisters have it and I have a lot of the symptoms, but I had been in denial for a long time. I’m not very happy that I have it, but I am happy to know there’s a reason I’ve gained so much weight, and now I can work on losing it! Apparently my blood sugar was normal two weeks ago when I had it checked, now I have to check it every day for two weeks. In two weeks, I go back to the doctor, let her know what my blood sugar has been, and she’s probably gonna start me on metformin. She said it should help me lose weight :)
I’m not expecting a miracle drug, but it would be awesome if I could actually lose weight when I exercise and eat healthy! I’m gonna be joining the gym again this month, and starting to eat as healthy as I can… I can’t wait to finally start seeing results! :)
