Ok, now you have my attention. I have gained about 20 pounds in 1.5 months. I read your thread about going from a size 22 to a size 14 in such a short amount of time. After I had my child I went from 230 to 190 without doing anything (in 2 weeks time). I swore to myself I would keep it off. I got up to about 210 and lost 40lbs. Now I am up to 230 and gaining everyday. I eat like a rabbit. I live on a road that is 1 mile from my house to the gate. If I do the walk it is 2 miles. My problem is that my right knee has had 4 surgeries and still pinches when I walk. I have PCOS, but i don't want to blame it on that. My Dr. put me on Yaz today and I hope that doesn't worsen the situation.....:dizzy:
Thanks for the inspiration. I hope you will stay on this board to give me a little push once in a while. :D[/QUOTE]

Hey Kayla.........thanks for the kind words. I've been on these boards for a couple of years and will remain on these boards. I have gotten some great advice and have been fortunate enough to give advice as well. Don't give up. Just stick with it. PCOS does play a big role in all of this. How long ago were you diagnosed? Were you being treated before now? PCOS wreaks havoc on our hormones and once you find a treatment option that works best for you, you will notice that your hormones settle down to a normal level. Once you achieve that, it does make it easier to lose the weight. You may still need to work harder than a non PCOS woman........but it can be done. Hang in there..............we're all in the same boat here and we need each other to keep focused.
