The time has come!

It wasn't until I saw the photos from my son Daniel's 2nd birthday that I realised how big I was. I knew then it was time. I had to do something about my weight.

After being told by our fertility specialist that we had to see to become pregnant with Daniel that I had PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and I would always find it difficult to lose weight, I basically didn't try. I kinda watched what I ate, I didn't go overboard with food, but if I wanted something I'd have it.

I had no idea how hard it would be to lose weight. I knew though it was the right time for me to at least give it a go. I think that is the biggest "secret" I can offer anyone who is thinking of losing weight is that YOU have to be ready to do it. No one can do it for you and there is no magic wand that anyone can wave that can make it any easier. One thing to remember is you have to want to do it for you and it's not always easy.

I started this blog in March 2007. I've already lost quite a few kilos. YAY me! ;) For the sake of consistency I will take my updated pics with the same clothes each time.

Just wondering if you have any advice for people sufferng from PCOS with weight loss. I was Diagnosed with PCOS @ 18 and just started to put it on really quickly. Did you try to concieve naturally?? I have being trying for seven years.

Unfortunately we didn't conceive naturally, I was on clomid and had internal ultrasounds mid-cycle to pinpoint ovulation.

Have you tried a low GI diet like the WW Core plan?

My heart goes out to you, ttc sux :(.
