For over 2 years John and I have been ready for another Baby to add to our family. We've been keeping it all kind of quiet since we didn't want the pressure of everyone asking us about it every month. Last month we gave in and said we couldn't do anything about this on our own. Something must be wrong. We went to a fertility specialist and found out that I have developed PCOS, or Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. PCOS occurs when your body gets an egg all ready to be released, but it doesn't release and forms a cyst. PCOS has lots of lovely side effects, but one of the main ones is that it makes you insulin resistant. This explains why I can't seem to loose weight easily. So the Dr put me on a diet called "The Belly Fat Cure". On this diet you have to limit your sugar intake to 15 grams of sugar a day or less. At first I thought there was no way I was gonna accomplish this.
It has been an adventure so far and it's just barely begining. There are days that being "broken" has a big emotional toll, so I had to wait for a day that was more optimistic before writing this post. I've already lost 7 pounds and for the most part feel pretty good.
It's just one step to a healthier me.
