This week is the week I take back a little bit of my self-control! In 2003 I was diagnosed with PCOS after one round of the Depo Provera shot. Since then I have been in an uphill battle with weight loss and that is about to change. I know the one thing that will make me a happier person no matter what is to feel in control of my weight again. Tuesday I am meeting with a doctor in my area who is helping me formulate a diet and exercise plan that will specifically target my PCOS problems. The big goal is to focus on my insulin resistance, and then weight loss will ultimately follow.
Thankfully, I stopped drinking anything aside from water (and the occasional glass of wine) on January 28th, the same day I had my physical for becoming a Foster Parent.
To me it doesn't matter if we get pregnant, adopt, foster only, I just HAVE to take better care of myself and my health. At 26, I shouldn't feel like I'm 40.
Today I cleaned out my pantry (most was past its due date anyway), fridge, and freezer. I was happy to rid myself of the not so healthy foods. I mean, I wasn't eating them anyway, they had expired!
So wish me luck, I will keep everyone posted on my progress, and I hope to see some positive results very soon!
