WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: eating AT NIGHT...I get the snackies around nineor ten
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've been diagnosed with PCOS, and I have two choices: to be healthy, or die young.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I've been overweight my entire life, but it's just recently that a doctor actually turned to me and said "hey, there might be a hormonal problem going on here." I don't know why, but no one ever thought it was important enough to investigate. I've not got a great practitioner who is handling the whole thing in a very professional manner. It's scary, but it's almost a bit of a relief to know what is wrong, and how I can beat it. I now know i'm not a freak, and that there are other people like me...lots of them..yay for us!!
