Well , I ordered a couple of books on PCOS , and got my 1st one today . I have already read a good bit of it . Its about how eating healthy might not be enough for woman with PCOS . And a LOT of it sheds a LOT of light on things , and why even though I eat healthy , Im still over weight . There are certain ways that a woman with PCOS has to eat to make a difference , seeing as our bodies are so resistant to lose weight . Im feeling relived bc so much of that Im reading makes cents ,and applies to me !!!! Thank goodness something finally makes cents with all this ! Now maybe I can get down to my normal body weight again! {not that I dont love myself now , but I just want to be healthy} ....Im in no hurry ,and am not looking to this for aesthetic reasons , but more bc I want to have more children , and I dont want cancer , or a heart attack any time in my life ! I think those are pretty good reasons , dont you ? Just FYI , bc Im sure there are those ppl out there who are gonna say ''well if you didt let yourself get so fat , you wouldn't have this problem'' ..for those ppl , I am overweight because of the PCOS , its not that I have PCOS because Im over weight . Its a fact , dont believe me , look it up . I just had to say that bc you know , you always have ''those people'' out there ..lol....Anyway , just had it on my mind , and thought that I would share !

Feb. 2, 2008 at 7:25 PM PCOS = polycystic ovary syndrome . And its similar in some ways to a thyroid problem . In the way that I have a very low metabolism , and that Im always tired . Im doing ok , hoping that eating a diet that is good to improve the disease will help soon . I have alot to have energy for , summer will be here pretty soon . and no , thats not a stupid question ..lol..Only about 10% of woman ever develop this , so its kinda rare .

Feb. 4, 2008 at 1:10 PM I have hypothyroidism and PCOS losing weight is next to impossible for me.  I feel like I need to explain to everyone why I am so over weight.  People keep telling me OH just exercise and eat healthy but it is so much more then that.  They look at you like you don't take care of yourself when you are actually working really hard to lose the weight.  Your post was an inspiration.  Thank you.  I need to get some books too.
