I am 28 years old and I was diagnosed with PCOS 6 months ago.
I was 205 lbs then.
When my doctor told I had PCOS, I came home and cried for 3 straight hours.
My husband got me a gym membership.
Thanks to my family for standing by me. Special thanks to my husband.
My OBGYN put me on metformin and I decided to take metformin along with healthy diet and exercise.
I am a vegetarian and ate lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains and drank lots of water.
I did cardio exercises 4 times a week.
I had irregular periods six months ago.
Now I have lost 25 lbs so far and my cycle is regular.
I feel great now. I feel fresh, energetic and confident now.
People have started noticing my weight loss.
To all the ladies out there, who have just started the weight loss program, don't give up.
My husband and I have decided to start a family now. I pray and hope I conceive soon. Wish me luck, ladies :)
Editor's comments: Congrats, Ruk! A tremendous achievement.
One little thing…it's easy for vegetarians to develop a vitamin B12 insufficiency or deficiency because there is little B12 in plant material. Vitamin B12 is found primarily in animal products.
Secondly, a side effect of metformin is that can induce a vitamin B12 deficiency, since it impairs your ability to absorb B12 from your food.
You will need adequate vitamin B12 for the healthy development of your future baby. So give some thought about where you are going to get the B12 you need. Maybe you will need to take a B12 supplement?
