Diagnoes with PCOS- Already very Active

Postby munchkin » Wed May 11, 2011 10:56 am


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! :evil: 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!

Hi Munchkin,

I have PCOS too. It sounds like you're already doing everything right so ask your doctor to refer you to an endocrinologist (hormone specialist). They'll be able to give you a much better idea of exactly what's going on with your PCOS and how to best treat it. And if he won't, go to another doctor that will. PCOS is one of those things that not all doctors really "get" and by the sounds of it, your's is one of those.

Good luck!
