Default I'm new and inspired

I've done the dieting for 10 years now, but for the first time I'm actually inspired. Today was the official start of my new diet and for the first time I feel like I can do it.

I have PCOS, so I'm doing the insulin resistance diet, and I read the book cover to cover on Friday as soon as I got it. It made so much sense to me. I spent an entire summer on WW two years ago and lost nothing - because of my insulin resistance.

I hope you all don't mind if I hang out here and chat with you all. You all seem more talkative than the PCOS board.

The IR diet is good stuff. You might also cross-read about the South Beach diet, which contains many of the same principles. There's lots of recipes and such in the SB forums that may help you out, too.

I wouldn't call myself strictly either an IR dieter or an SB dieter anymore, but my plan is still based in part on what I learned through those books. The concepts of linking and limiting quantities of carbs at any one meal are especially helpful to me.

Welcome! I also have PCOS, but unlike some, I haven't found that it has affected my weight loss. So I guess it's different for all of us.

Good luck!!

Thanks for all the warm welcomes!

I went to the grocery store last night and was buying so many different kinds of food that I don't usually buy that at one point I didn't recognize my own cart!!!

That happened to me also on my first shop - I actually started filling someone elses - I was so embarrassed!
