I don't have any experience with weightlifting...but I do have PCOS and IR. Sorry to say t. hat I had it in Jr high/HS/college when I was quite thin and active, also. Some people assume that you get it from being inactive or obese....not so much...and not always. It is also a genetic thing. For a long time I was able to minimize the effects by being active. But, if you gain (like I did when pregnant) those pounds are SO stubborn for PCOS/IR peeps. Stubborn? Yes. Impossible to lose? NO. It has taken me a year to lose a little over 40 lbs. But, I am also hypothyroid which is also fairly common among the PCOS cysters. Forty pounds down is way better than gaining. Low carb combined with IF is what has worked for me. Good luck.
