  • Congratulations! I have PCOS too. In my first marriage we tried for 3 years to get pregnant and I did every fertility thing possible but no results. My marriage ended and then From 2010-2011 I went from over 300 lbs to 220....I met my current husband and I got pregnant after 3 months-and gained it back but I had 2…
  • Oh yes I understand completely. I lost 80 lbs and got pregnant with my twins... by the girls first birthday I lost all of the weight--but we weeks later I found out I was pregnant again with one baby. I gained 40 lbs back with her pregnancy.... but she is 1 tomorrow and I lost 62 lbs! In total I have lost 102 lbs and I…
  • Congrats! I lost 80 lbs before my cycles regulated then I was surprised to find I was pregnant- and with twins! I gained 70 lbs back but lost it all again and 2 weeks after their 1st birthday I found out I was pregnant again. I gained 40 lbs with her and have lost 60! Down 100 lbs in total from my start and my twins are 2…
  • Great to meet other women with PCOS out there!! I'd love to help offer support and share recipes & workout ideas!!
  • what do you consider a heavy weight?? I started with 5's, I'm on 15 pound dumbbells right now and going to be doing 17.5 pounds next week??
  • chop up any mixture of zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes, parsnips, beets & butternut squash. Add 1/2-1 tsp extra virgin olive oil and some italian seasoning, roast in the oven stirring every once in a while!! Add 3-4 oz of chicken breast, pork loin chop or some other lean protein and you're set to go---it's under 350…
  • hey!! You can add me as a friend, I have PCOS as well!!
  • My daughters were born at 35 weeks, Isabella was 6.8 pounds, Mackenzie was 6.4 pounds. They just turned 1 and are currently 24 & 23 pounds, 1 inch height difference--one is in the 97th percentile and the other is in the 85-97th percentile. They are big for their age, but I agree, we only offer them healthy food choices but…
  • Good for you!! I have PCOS as well and am doing this without meds too!! You look beautiful--please embrace your curvy body!! I would love to have a sexy body shape like yours!! You're rockin' it!
  • Hola Mommies!! I have 1 year old twins & a 5 1/2 year old stepson!! Busy busy!! Just went back to work last week 2 days a week--as a care aide in our hospital!! Talk about crazy life!
  • He's 10, I don't think he should have to worry about calories! As an adult, you buy groceries and can pack his lunch or prepare healthy snacks. You make the choices. Not him. He should worry about being a kid and playing. I'm sure he understands an apple is good and a chocolate bar is bad. Only put good choices in front of…
  • I think that if he has other intersts--as you mentioned sports, encourage him there to play and do his best. If he has other physical interests outside of that ie. swimming, riding his bike, just playing outside etc. Encourage him that way and participate with him. Support any activity he wants to do and make it a family…
  • I am so excited for you!! I have a similar success story and would love to be here to support you!! I was very young (19) when I got married. My husband and me tried for three years to get pregnant with no luck!! I was diagnosed with PCOS and after multiple tests I was told that I would be unable to concieve. My marriage…
  • After watching the documentary 'Supersize me' and then reading this quotation in a weight loss blog--I know that Canada's numbers are similar. So now I'm going to rant--and please bear with me! IF you love your children, please, be conscious of what you put in their bodies!! You are the adult, YOU buy the groceries and YOU…
  • I think it's better to come up with your own shakes--with plain non fat greek yogurt plus some fresh fruits and veggies. Slim Fast has a LOT of sugar, little protein or any other real nutritional value. 1 serving of kirkland plain, nonfat greek yogurt has 18 g of protein already--add some blueberries, strawberries and 1/2…
  • If I eat any white sugar or white carbs now, I crave it--for days after!! Sometimes I find it`s easier not to have cheat days or cheat meals because any processed stuff or white sugar is blech. I used to load my coffee with white sugar and cream or full fat milk--now I use almond milk + cinnamon and it is delicious!
  • I was told that I couldn`t get pregnant with my PCOS. My husband at the time and I started trying and after 3 years we had no luck. I started losing weight, went back to school and planned a life for myself without children. Things didn`t work out between my husband and me and I moved on. I hit a plateau with my weight…
  • Yes!! I noticed a huge difference!! I lost 80 pounds before getting pregnant with my twin daughters--I ate white potatoes, white bread etc and it took me 2 years to lose that. I was doing weigth watchers but I didn`t follow a clean eating diet or a low gi diet or anything, I just stayed under my `points``. I didn`t pay…
  • Thank you everyone!! I've just started doing different cardio and circuit training and plyometrics and stuff and want to get an accurate idea of how many calories I"m burning---I HATE GUESTIMATING with the exercises on here!!!!! I think it will help with my weight loss for sure and I've noted to press START!! Haha you guys…
  • I don't know if this helps, but I'm 25 and I'm 5'6??
  • Hi!! Feel free to add me and let`s all get this weight off together!! I have 7 month old twins at home, I workout 5-7 days a week and eat around 1300-1500 calories a day---lower GI as well!!
  • One word for you . . . HOT!! You look amazing!! Thank you for motivating me!!!!
  • I would have the plain nonfat greek yogurt with berries and drizzle 1 tsp of honey on it for a natural sugar source---or blend it up into a smoothie with some fruit!!
  • My twin girls Isabella and Mackenzie are 6 1/2 months right now!! I gained 60 pounds while I was pregnant with them, they were born at 35.5 weeks naturally, without a C-section!! Isabella was 6.8 and Mackenzie was 6.4--and I was huge!! I was unable to nurse and didn't understand or learn about pumping and consistency with…
  • Thank you, I'm trying to do lots of cardio to maybe balance it out so I won't gain . . . I'm nervous to see a gain on the scale!!
