I'm 27 years old and have PCOS.
PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) There is no cure,its a condition that
makes a woman fat,pimply,hairy and *infertile IF NOT managed*. Sometimes even progresses to Diabetes so I'm also careful with what I eat.

Thank God, The good news is PCOS is Manageable with exercise and weight loss. And so here I am.

I am positive that I will be victorious. For three years straight, I kept on gaining. And my doctor told me that if I don't stop soon I will be obese. I have a very small frame too.

I want to target 110 but OB wants me at 100lbs. I thought it was impossible. I was exercising and I'm a vegetarian so I don't understand. But I kept on going and the weight started to drop. Until this year where my weight really plateaued and I was desperate.I went to fatsecret, and realize I need to improve my diet.

Then I was back on track. So here's a try to 107to battle PCOS and be healthy. Most of all become a mom. Battle infertility.

I'm getting married December 2013 too!
So all efforts to be fertile and be fit for the wedding day and that
dream dress of mine.

Update at 2014 I am 104lbs at 5' flat and very petite frame as a Typical Asian

Don't be too hard on yourself. But be focus and positive.

54lbs to go in a year would only mean 4.5 lbs a month. Go slowly... but surely. I hope you continue to trust God more in helping you to become more disciplined with proper diet. I think prayer would go a long way. so would research.

go go go...

Yes Ponky82! You can do this. Wow, great progress. You are an inspiration. If someone talks to me about giving up, I hope its okay that I tell them your story to keep them motivated. And the highlight of the story would be how well you are doing today. Keep it up!

This is so honest for you to share Ponky82. I salute you.

You are doing great sweetie. Keep on going. Smile

I hope swimming is something you can do though. I swear it helped me loose when I needed to. I have PCOS so its also hard for me but your friend is correct. Your little victories must be celebrated and later on you'll be surprised. Goal reached!
