performance: gaining 0.5 lb a week

I have always been the 'skinny' girl. Size 6-7 at 6'4. Modeled in NY for several years. I started getting Depo Provera shots in 2003 and promptly gained about 30 pounds and leveled off. I stopped taking the shots in 2005 thinking that would drop the weight and then gained another 65 pounds in just a few months! My hair started falling out. I went from porcelin skin to severe pre pubescent acne. My periods stopped and I was completely and utterly exhausted 24/7. I bounced from doctor to doctor for several years trying to find out what was wrong with me. I kept being told, "Its your diet". No, its not. I eat well and ALWAYS have. I finally found a doctor who asked the right questions and most importantly BELIEVED me when I said I am not ok. She diagnosed me with PCOS. Unfortunately, she moved out of state before we could lay out a treatment plan and her replacement could care less. So, I am back to square one. I decided I am tired of being fat so until another doctor is found that cares enough to LISTEN to me, I am on this diet for the long haul. I went from 183 pounds to 278 pounds. I want the real me back by any means available. I can't do anything about the hair loss, the acne or the periods (can't say I miss THOSE) but by god I can do something about the weight even though I know it will always be an active battle! I am strong. I am determined. I am driven. I will win.
