PCOS realization post
I realize that there are times when I have nothing to write about unless it is on another blog. I realize and know that I need to lose weight. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and that does make losing weight harder. This means that I have to work extra hard in the diet and exercise departments. I have been having weight problems for most of my life. I want to lose 100+ pounds, but I realize that it is a rather large undertaking considering my condition. I was diagnosed as having this syndrome nearly seven years ago. I gained a lot of weight in a short span. My weight gain was not gradual. It was climbing and climbing and climbing in a rather short period of time. The truth is that I have gained a lot of weight partially because I gave up on myself as well. I realize that I haven't made that much progress over the years. I have to realize that there are complications and health risks to having Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, like insulin resistance, diabetes complications, heart attacks, and strokes. Those are the things that I should have reminded myself of, but I have a thing for good food and being easily overwhelmed. Those are issues that I admit that I have to work on. This post is my light-bulb moment for today.
