I have never been much of a risk taker. I have had some exciting times but for the most part I am a pretty ordinary and normal person. I thought I lived a good life and did the right things until recently the last couple of years my weight really ballooned up on me.

It seemed like no matter what I did, the weight would just keep going up. I went from slim and trim to borderline morbidly obese. To be honest, in the beginning I said, oh the clothes don’t fit like they used to, and I’d go up a size. Then there came a point where half the stores I used to shop in didn’t carry my size. Until now there are two stores I can buy clothes from. I find its hard to walk up stairs. I am often achy.

My life career plans have been put on hold.

It took all my courage to eventually talk to my doctor, and she sent me to a gynecologist, the result being that I have been diagnosed with PCOS. I probably always had the it but when I was thin it wasn’t causing symptoms, as I gained more weight the PCOS picked up and then made it harder to lose weight.

So now I am extremely heavy, diagnosed with PCOS and a symptom of it is being insulin resistant, so losing weight is harder and putting it on is easier.

Now I am beginning to put myself first, make healthy choices and live for me. I have this, and I will do all that is in my power to win.
