Poked and Prodded

I went and had my blood drawn today for a number of tests related to my PCOS. I am insulin resistant and this is one reason why it is so difficult for me to lose weight with a normal diet. I carry it all right in my middle which is very common for women with PCOS and pre-diabetes. Once the results come back I hope to be put back on metformin, which helps to regulate my blood sugar, which results in easier weight loss. I was on metformin while trying to conceive Lani and I lost 10 pounds in the first two weeks!

GAH! All the medical mumbo jumbo makes my head spin. There are so many facets to PCOS and it can be confusing because no woman has the exact same symptoms. I have a blog that is specifically geared towards my PCOS and write more about it over there. I will try to only stick to the weight loss aspect of it here.
