OK I don't normally post my business on FB, CM or wherever, nor do I ask for a lot of help. It has to be bad for me to ask for help.
I was recently diagnosed with PCOS, a VERY mild case (IE I'm starting to have irregular periods, and I have cysts on my ovaries that don't cause me any pain, and I'm having a VERY hard time losing weight). I did Weight Watchers for a LONG time, and lost gained lost gained ect. But for now I'm doing MFP, which I love! I track everything DAILY, and I'm 5 days out of the week under my calories, sometimes (maybe on the weekends) I'm over a little, but the average for the week is under. I'm either staying the same, or gaining. I have my MFP set to 1350 calories a day (I'm 5'4" 176 lbs) (that's what MFP gave me as a calorie goal).
I'm currently "grounded" from my Dr to only do very low impact workouts (I tore my ACL years ago and I never had it looked at, because we didn't have ins at the time) I went and had an MRI done a month ago and it turns out my body absorbed my ACL, so while awaiting surgery I'm basically allowed to walk, swim, bike and a few other workouts (no running, no zumba ect). So I'm not super limited since the things I'm allowed to do are still good workouts (IMO). I'd love to run though (I like to run, but I'm also not trying to mess anything else up, because if I do I don't know if ins would still pay for my surgery if I did something I wasn't supposed to do).
I'm seriously wanting to say screw it and just stop counting calories ect, because I feel like I'm not going anywhere. Could I have seriously hit a plateau after a year of WW and counting calories? I'm just so frustrated. So if you guys have some words of wisdom I'd be forever thankful!
Thanks for reading :)
