I reached my first goal!
I reached my first goal! I’m down 27 lbs! Kind of a weird goal number but I did it based on my weight and when I first set my goals my start weight was different because I started my whole workout healthy eating and stopped for a while. So now I weigh 155 lbs. I’ve gone from 182 to 155 and I can tell. All my clothes fit better and I look better. I was starting to look really big. PCOS sucks, yo.
I’m really happy about this :)
I need workout DVD suggestions!
I have a gym membership but I don’t feel like going anymore because by the time I get there have my workout class start, do my class and then leave its almost 8 at night. Now thats its finally getting nicer out and the sun is staying out longer I dont want to be stuck inside at the gym until so late at night.
I need DVD suggestions so I can work out at home! I like 30-60 minute workouts. Anyone have good ideas?
I’m finally getting where I need to be
Sorry I’ve been MIA. Both computers in my apartment are broken and my tumblr app doesnt work when I’m at work.
Lots of stuff has been going on but long story short, Ive figured out why I havent been able to lose weight. I have PCOS which is Polycycstic Ovary Syndrome. I have high testosterone and my hormones are all fucked up. Because of the testosterone you dont lose weight and it kind of just keeps piling on.
I’m on medicine for it now. It helps you lose weight. and it helps relieve your symptoms.
I was also diagnosed with IBS, major depressive disorder and social anxiety disorder. My doctor knows how important it is for me to lose weight for a bunch of different reasons, so all the medicine shes put me on is geared to help you lose weight.
I’ve lost 15.5 pounds in 2 months. Thats the most weight I’ve ever lost. I’m so happy about it.
Ive gone from 182 down to 166.5. I have a long way to go but its so nice getting on the scale and everytime you step on it you weigh less then you did before.
I’m also taking fitness classes. I take one 4 times a week. Cardio fit and tone, body bump, step and strength and kickbox jam. I feel smaller, my clothes look better. I feel better. I feel happier.
It was always so discouraging never losing weight even when counting every calorie, working out a ton because nothing else worked. So of course when doing all those things and losing 10 lbs in the matter of 10 months…you just dont want to do it anymore..thats exactly where I was at. It turned into a “whats the point” kind of thing.
When my doctor found out about the PCOS shes like “yeah, this is why you arent losing weight. You CANT. It wont happen, not until you get on medication.” I didnt think it would really work this well…but it has and I’m so thankful. Because of the PCOS I had a skin condition called CRP. Basically brown dry itchy as fuck patches of skin inbetween and under my boobs, in the front of my neck and under my armpits..that was the worst. The creams didnt help. Nothing made it better. I just kind of accepted I’d always have it. But the medicine for my PCOS is making it go away. Its almost completely clear from everywhere. and its just such a big deal to me its like “OMG I have normal looking armpits!!” like isnt that crazy? To be so excited about how your ARMPITS look?! Thats all I wanted though. To wear a tank top or swim suit and not have to worry about people seeing that.
I’m feeling better and looking better and I’m just glad I have the answers to all my questions now. My wedding is in less then 3 months so I want to look my best. Obviously. My fiance has been super supportive through all of this and my mom has even backed off about my weight/eating/exercising. Which shes NEVER done. I didnt feel good the other day and she actually said…”well why dont you just skip your workout class for the night. youve been doing really good and youre not feeling well so one night wont ruin anything.” I almost died when she said that. She would have never done so before. And I’m glad I didnt go because I felt WAY better the next day.
I hope everyone else is doing just as good and hopefully my computer is fixed soon and I can be on here more. I miss my tumblr friends! :)
