My name is Danae and I am 27 years old. I have been married for 7 years and have a 6 year old son. I joined this group for support and inspiration. I desire to achieve a healthy weight to 1) be healthy and 2) be able to have more children. I stopped having cycles 3 years ago. This last year I finally got insurance and was able to go to the doctor and was diagnosed with PCOS (polycycstic ovary syndrome). Because I had gotten so big, my body could not regulate my hormones causing my testosterone levels to elevate. I lost 25 lbs and now have cycles around every 8-10 weeks. I am 5'3 and was 242. I am now 217. Though I did give in to depressive feelings for a few months, I have maintained my 25 lb loss. I have a goal of 150 (this is was a healthy weight for me). 25 down and 67 to go.
