Hello

I'm 25 years old and am currently at my heaviest weight ever - 106kg.

I come from a family of skinny, sporty people and my 56 kilo mother has never understood the struggles of being a person prone to being overweight, so I have always lacked sincere support in my attempts to shed the kilos.

I suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome and various other hormonal issues, these certainly do not assist the situation but I don't for a second believe that this is the soul cause of my weight problems.

I am a snacker and a sneaky eater. I snack all day long (on fruit and crispbreads, but eating is eating) and I am a sneaky eater. I eat healthy small portions in the presence of others, but indulge in snacks and foods that I know are bad for me in the privacy of my own home. Living alone allows this.

Today, I threw out the crackers, dip, chocolates, chips and soft drinks and replaced them with spring water, fruit juice, low fat yoghurt, fruit and vegetables.

I'm hoping to get the support and encouragement I need to make this lifestyle change here.

welcome to the group :) i too am a pcos sufferer but i have lost weight and i have had a baby. it irks me to hear of other pcos sufferers saying that they cant do this or that because of the condition but a lot of it is laziness! it sounds to me like you are NOT one of these people and that you are doing something about your weight. best wishes and sing out if you need anything :)

Welcome :D I'm glad you're doing something about it, we're all here to support you along your journey.

When I was 13 and my doctor thought I may have PCOS, he did the worst thing of telling someone, especially with depression, that weight loss would be a whole up-hill battle for me. For a long time I never tried because I figured what he told me must be true. *shakes her head* not the case, I've lost weight just as normally as anyone else :) You will too, don't you worry :D

hello and welcome to the forum! as others have said PCOS will possibly make it a bit more of a challenge, but it is still possible as modelled by other members of the forum with PCOS.

I understand the unsympathetic family line. My sis has always been skinny and occasionaly she will come out with comments that are not deliberately hurtful, but are nevertheless nasty. My mum even got upset when I reached 75kg because she was now the heaviest girl in the family!!

But family is famiy, despite the lack of understanding, most families want the best for each other.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
