As looking to those picture on the side, I unlike the other girls have a little more than 30 lbs to lose. I have tried everything under the sun-just not for very long. I get lazy and stop cutting veggies, stop going to the gym, eat whatever I make my husband etc. I know a lot of times it is just a mental struggle too. I have PCOS. My 1st doctor was not very encouraging when speaking to me about all of the side effects and that stuck with me. I hope that I will be encouraged by the other girls and we will have a blast along the way!

Oh Annie, I'm sorry your first doctor was so discouraging. It makes me want to punch him in the face. (What's his name? I know people...)

I hate your first doctor. Also, thanks for linking that site, I'm glad I got to learn more about what you're going through, and what you have gone through.

If you ever need a work out buddy, I'm right down the street :-)

I'm really glad you linked to that site, too. It's crazy how many women are effected by PCOS: 1 in 15.

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
