PCOS and me...
Here's a tip: Nutrition is the most important part of losing weight. If you haven't yet, get the myfitnesspal app. It's free. It takes a bit of effort to learn to use it comfortably, and you'll prob never feel like you're doing it perfectly, but you can really learn a lot about what you're putting into your body and where your nutrients and energy are coming from.
Um, other tips, about skimble or working out in general:
Start small. Develop new habits. Like everyday after lunch you do ten squats, or everyday before breakfast you do 50 jumping jacks. Whatever it is, it can be small, but it's something you commit to doing for a length of time. Like, tell yourself "I'll just do this for three (or whatever number) months, THEN I can give it up if I want to"
A two minute workout is better than nothing, and can often lead to more.
Don't underestimate the power of walking.
I was diagnosed with PCOS several years ago. Having a healthy body weight is so important when trying to conceive. I took a year to prepare my body for having a baby. Besides dieting, I cut out caffeine, doubled my water in take, started taking a prenatel vitamin, etc. I'm 39 and still trying to conceive baby #1, currently on Clomid, and IVF treatment number 4 coming up soon.
Wished I would have started a healthy lifestyle 10 years ago and possibly skipped fertility treatments.
I started on 25mg of Clomid and its still my current dosage. I think age plays a big factor because of the risk of multiples. My last scan I had 4 folicles between 18-22 cm, so the low dosage works for me.
Just a heads up throw your scale away. I gain about 8lbs each month when I'm on clomid but was told it was from the massive amounts of hormones. It takes about a week for the bloat to go away. I just use a body fat analyzer now.
If you decide to go on Clomid make sure your getting scans and being monitored for OHSS.
Good luck and sending you tons of baby dust :)
I might get PCOS according to the doctor :(
