polycystic ovarian syndrom
Hi Christina! I have PCOS, and I'm 37. Like you, I had one child with no problems way before I was diagnosed, and later developed symptoms that tipped us off that something was wrong. I had a very irregular cycle, and thought that I couldn't get pregnant at all until I had a very painful cyst that led to me getting my first internal ultrasound. I was shocked to discover that I [i]had been[/i] pregnant, but was in the middle of an early miscarriage. Pretty much blew my husband and I away! We had planned to adopt, and had not been using birth control since we believed it wasn't an issue. Long story short, my problem wasn't conceiving a child, it was carrying to term. I had had what I now believe to be three or more miscariages that I wrote off as nasty, painful late periods before I even realized what was going on. Once I knew there was a pattern, I started looking for a cause, and through some research, came up with PCOS. You're actually fortunate that you got your diagnosis at a workable age, as this remains an often misdiagnosed problem. I had to kind of bully my doc into doing some tests on me, but she was very nice about acknowledging that she was wrong when they came back! The upside - I was very lucky. I now have 3 more healthy, beautiful kids (4.75, 2.75 and 10 months). A lot of the reading I've done suggests that if you can get to a manageable weight and maintain a pregnancy (as in my case), you'll be able to do it again. I remember reading, too, that PCOS, once reversed, can actually make you [i]more[/i] fertile, because once those eggs start moving the right way, they REALLY move. That seems to be our situation! I did have more misses in between, and our youngest little girl was supposed to be a twin, but we lost the other baby. All this is a very long-winded way to say... keep on doing what you're doing. The Low GI diet seems to be great for us (although I am happily maintaining on South Beach). I wish I'd known about them sooner. Every situation is different, but my story has a happy ending, and yours can, too. If I can help or just lend an ear, let me know.

Sausage??
I'm on South Beach, and I don't know all the rules for Fat Flush, but I've lost nearly 30 lbs, and have eaten sausage all along. I get my store's made-in-store bulk, which comes in several varieties. I just drain very carefully and even blot the finished product to remove the most fat. I always kind of felt like it was cheating, but that just made it taste better, and it never impacted my loss. Good luck!

Interesting Site
I don't know about the rest of you, but I came into this dieting thing blind - pretty much everything I know came from this site or other internet searches. This link will take you to a breakdown of exactly what your body needs to maintain, gain or lose weight, as well as what nutrients are most important. Hope you enjoy playing with it as I have! http://www.nutritiondata.com/t...

How do you know which carbs are OK to add back?
I'm in a Phase 1.5 - I eat approved carbs about 3 or 4 days a week. I try to keep it at one "dose" per day, but I'm curious about how everyone determines what's Ok to bring back. My current theory about any kind of bread/grain/pasta is (and it's kinda dumb) when I read the nutrition info on a product, I compare the percentage of carbs daily value and if the fiber percentage is higher, I feel all right about it. Please tell me what your system is... I'm in a big stall and maybe I should be back in hard-core Phase 1.

Can you change the Rest and Sleep calorie burn?
Yes, but the calories per hour for sleep and resting are estimated... I'd like to adjust mine down.
