I was convinced I had PCOS and told the DR and because of my history of pregnancy diabetes I talked him into putting me on metformin and I have SLOWLY been dropping weight over the past 18mths, down a total of 8.5kgs or so. I have since gone on to develop full type 2 diabetes, and had an increase in metformin to 850mg twice a day. So probably just caught it early.

I have now started menapause which is really not helping my hormonal ballance with the PCOS!!! Now I have to go on the pill to help get periods more regular at the moment they are anything from 3 to 6 weeks apart! Think I might go for a gyno checkup just to make sure it is menapause and nothing else though, just to be on the safe side.

I have been feeling really unwell for weeks and it all started when I was given a box of Lindt chocolates, oh so yummy, I ate most of them in 3 days (did share some with family). I really stuffed my blood sugars and I have been battling upset tummy and headaches, dizzy spells, insomnia and severe fatigue. Not a good thing. I must have looked bad because everyone I ran into has asked my whats wrong!!

Note to self; Don't each chocolate it's bad for my health! lol
Started to get sugars down this week but feel like crap still, I could sleep for a week!! On the good side the upset tummy has stopped me from eating a lot so my weight is down to 81.5, but not a good way to do it.

Need to get more water into me to flush out my system.

The one thing I hate is although I don't have the energy to move I have to keep going to keep my matabolism burning to keep the sugars down!

Hope to feel better this week.

On the up side a bought a size 18 swim suit for our xmas beach holiday that I feel good enough to go out in public in! last years was a 22!!

I'm happily plodding along slowing shrinking.

Been getting stuck around 82kg up and down but now feel like I can put a bit of a burst in and drop a couple more kilos for xmas!

I was looking a a photo from 18 mths ago and boy have I lost a lot of weight off my face! a whole extra chin has gone! Has given me a bit of a lift, lets see if I can be a bit more motivated this week, see what exercise I can get done.

goals for the week;
- Water (again - still)
- exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.

Didn't do any specific exercise yesterday but spent a lot of time going back and forth from the laundry to clothesline to laundry to bedroms. Pretty sure I got my 10000 steps in. ha

Got to get on with the xmas shopping. Need to get everything done and finished by the 13th as one of my 9 year old finishes school then. And I have to send presents interstate!!
