Losing Weight with PCOS?

I am looking to find something to help me once in for all. I am done with all this crap. Let me tell you about myself first. I was diagnosed with PCOS back in 2005. My husband and I have basically been TTC since then on and off, not religiously or anything but here and there. Ive done all doses of clomid all the way up to 150mg, none helped me ovulate. I did the metformin with the clomid, I did just the metformin alone. Nothing!! I dont get my periods regularly, havent really since the day I had my first one. I normally will have to take provera in order to start a new cycle. When the 150mg didnt work, I just got fed up and good or not, I said screw it. Im not going to do any medicines. So I quit the clomid, I quit the metformin, I quit provera. So November 15 was my last period (provera induced) well about 2 weeks ago, I started spotting. It was just like a light brownish color, and only showed when I wiped. I remember I did this before and the doc said it was breakthrough bleeding, and he had me go on the provera to stop the breakthrough and to start a real true bleed. So I remembered that, and just said ok well I will start the provera. Cause I did that for about 4 days, and it wasn't really stopping on its own. So I started the provera and like 2 days after my last pill, I started spotting again. This time it was a little red, but then it stopped again. I thought ok what in the world. Cause normally I take my 10 days worth of pills and then I get my period about 5-10 days after my last pill. So I thought ok a. its too early to be doing any kind of bleed, and b. it didnt last. So I decided to take a pg test just to see. Well to my amazement I saw a PREGNANT. Yep a digital test that said PREGNANT!! I was flipping out. Here I am thinking that I can't get pg, Ive done all the clomid out there, and the doc said injections will be my next step. So Im flipping. Well I tried to not get my hopes up. My dh told me to not get too excited till I took another test. Well I took another one the very next morning. NOT PREGNANT appeared. Oh gosh I was just so sad. I thought, what a cruel joke this is. All these years, and all these pg tests Ive taken to finally see a POSITIVE to then turn into a NEGATIVE. Oh girls I was just so upset. Its like you just pulled my heart out of my chest and stomped on it.

Even still I had a little itty bitty amount of hope left in me, so I went to the dr. I just wanted them to confirm that I was or wasnt'. So either a. it was a false psoitive (which everyone is saying since its a digital test and it said PREGNANT that I probably was or either B. I had a chemical pregnancy. UGH!!

Again remaining positive, on the flip side of that. If I truly was pg, then that gives me hope that I can at least get pg (so I did ovulate) all these years not. So to my point of this long story. I had started exercising about 2 months ago. Im a big girl I am about 5'7 and weigh 230lbs. Honestly I dont want to be this big and get pg because it taking me so long and so hard, I dont want my weight to affect my pregnancy. I am going to be 30 my bday and Ive been trying to find a diet that I could do and to continue my exercise regimin. Ive been slack the past 3 weeks, but plan on getting it back together tomorrow or monday. i really would like to at least get to 180 and I really think that maybe my body will start acting like its supposed to. my goal is 140lbs but its like on one hand, lets get me pregnant and then i can lose after the baby is here, but then they say if you go ahead and get to a good pre pregnancy weight that it will be easier to get off afterwards.

The thing about dieting is I LOvE FOOD. I love all the bad stuff. The chips, the cookies, the JUNK. FRIED, Fast food. Diet Dr pepper. I mean all the bad stuff. I mean do I really need to cut out all of that stuff if I really want to lose weight. Us women with PCOS, we crave the junk like that and I am trying to get in my head that if this really works if this really would get this weight off then it would be worth it. Could someone give me a sample menu. I am such a picky vegetable eater. I tend to like alot of chicken, hamburgers. I mean really the dinner, lunch is not the problem. its the snacks and breakfast cause i hate eggs and for snacks i like the satly snacks. Anyway I am sorry this is so long, but if you can truly help me. I mean truly think you could send me a plan to go by of what to eat, when to eat, what to drink, and what exercise I need to focus on that would mean the world to me. I have been doing ZUMBA at my gym and love it. Try to get some weights in there at least 2wice a week. Im desperate guys. I feel my dream is going to pass me by of being a moom if I dont do something RIGHT NOW. This is it. I need to do this once in for all. Please help me!! Thank you so much!

You mentioned that you like chicken and hamburger so the first thing I would start off with is looking for the chicken breasts that are boneless and skinless. On the hamburger look for the one that is lean when it comes to fat content. On both if you want to try it look for organic. Some supermarkets will carry organic meats.

If you like some kind of fish figure out which kinds of fish you like so that you can have a variety to add to that.

You mentioned that you are picky when it comes to veggies so make a list of all the veggies that you do like and try to come up with a kind of salad you can have. Do the same thing for the fruits that you like.

So a meal for one day might look something like this:

Salmon-baked or broiled with a salad consisting of spinach, tomatoes, radishes, red onions, and green peppers and then for dessert a mixture of fruit that might look something like this: apples, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe with some honey on it.

If you would like to talk more about this or anything else please feel free to e-mail me off site any time.

First off, treat the cause, not the effect. Get some help!! Try to figure out why you love all the bad food! Is it an emotional issue? Do you lack self-esteem? Do you love the bad food more than yourself? Do you not care about your future? There can be so many reasons, but the trick is to treat that, or at the very least, identify it, and to get to a point where you really respect your body and wouldn't even think about eating food all the time, that you know will put on weight. The occasional treat - that should be no problem, but I really mean occasional.

Find vegetables you do like. Try everything. Try different ways - cooked, raw. Look at the carbs you're eating and try to reduce those, and the fat. If you love burgers, start by throwing away the top half of the bun. Do it before you start eating (so you won't be tempted). Then scrape off most of that fatty, sweet sauce. You'll still get the flavour, just not all the calories. Start small - a complete diet change can be very daunting, especially if you crave the food you shouldn't have. Work on why you crave it. This is really important.

I don't think anyone can tell you what to eat without knowing you, your like and your dislikes. Everyone's preferences are different. If you can go to a dietitian, you can definitely get help. They will tailor a diet for you based on your likes and dislikes and will also be able to answer questions for you, and support you in the process. If that doesn't suit you then go to Weight Watchers or something like that. Most of the big weight-loss companies, do have successes if people follow their guidelines.

Good on you for exercising!!!! Really - it's the hardest thing for most people to get going and keep going with, but it's so important!

All the best with this. It's sooooo difficult and my hat is off to you for wanting to reduce your weight. You will thank yourself in the long run, and be proud of yourself when you achieve what you want to.
