I remember just a few days ago, I realized that I wanted the body that I had when I was a teenager. I was thin as I could be. Losing weight no longer seemed to be a struggle. I wasn't fat. My clothes fit well and I was proud of myself. I had to lose 30 pounds. Nowadays I have over 100 pounds to lose. I am not sure how many believe that PCOS has the symptoms of obesity as well as facial hair and insulin resistance. I was diagnosed as having PCOS in 2008 and now it seems that I will always have to deal with it. This is a period in which weight loss would be of great benefit to me. I don't wish to weight 50-60 pounds for another period. The period that I am referring to is that I remained a certain weight for a period of time only to gain more weight. Right now I am in the 300 pound period.
I am currently on Weight Watchers and there are times when I feel like I am wasting my money. Weight loss is quite hard. I tend to overwhelm easily so diet and exercise has been hard for me. Applying what I have learned is even harder. I have to cut back, eat in moderation, and learn to say no. Those are things that I often fail to do. There is no starting tomorrow. It is now starting today and now. It is also past time that I consume a breakfast daily and follow a plan. I also hate the word diet. Diet implies limits and the word temporary. Lifetime commitment scares me but it is better than limits. I do wish to be healthy and it starts with me. I choose to eat healthy. I choose to make exercise anything but a chore. Now I do wonder if losing weight is really 70-80% healthy eating and 20-30% exercise.
