Hi.I suffer from PCOS, and REALLY struggling with my weight. BUT....... having been in hospital for 5 days, I have managed to lose around 4lb, so thats a start.
Would be SO grateful for ANY advice or just someone to chat to who understands...xx

I, too, have PCOS, and found that it had a profound affect on my weight. The good news, and I'm only one example, is that I've (a) had two healthy babies {one with a lot of help from fertility drugs and procedures, which also didn't help my weight, and a second on all on my own) and (b) I've managed to take much of my extra weight off. You can do it. It's not a fun condition, but it is manageable. Feel free to message me if you have specific questions. I wish you luck!!

I, too, have PCOS and Atkins Low Carb is the only plan that works for me. I tried Weight Watchers and lost weight - but found that all the carbs made me feel bad, no energy, forgetful and other side effects. After going on the low carb life style I have more energy and my concentration is much better!! My sugar and other blood work also improved. Good luck in your weight loss journey.
