I have just been diagnosed with PCOS. I have always been about 10-15kg over weight and for about the last 6 years I have gone to the gym 4-5 times per week. I do do cardio sessions (interval training), 2 weight/resitance circuit sessions and a boxing class. I am consently changing my cardio and weight programs and have had many trainers over the years. I dont eat anything 'white' (bread, pasta etc) and only drink alchole maybe one a week. I dont drink soft drink either. I have a great pair of legs and have lost about 10cms of each thigh, about 5cm off each arm but HAVE PUT ON cms in my waist (i feel like a beach ball with legs). I have a dangerously high waist measurement of 90cm and I am only 147cm tall. I am 26 years old and I dont know what else to do. I am miserable in my life as I cant go out an enjoy a meal with friends or have a lazy day at the beach since I am always excerising. After being told I has PCOS and asking what I should do about it, when the DR said 'loose weght', I almost punched him! The only reason I began to suspect PCOS is because I cant loose wight around my middle and I have extremly irregular periods. I have been on the pill for 10 years and my periods are between 3-14 late EVERY month. I have slight acne problems (and NO Diane does NOT help) but I dont have any excess hair. The only good thing that has come from my diet and excersie is that I have bone density which is off the charts. What is the point of all this hard work when I have yet to shift ONE cm from my waist. Can someone please help me!
