I have not weighed yet - I'll be dropping by the scale in a few minutes on the way to the shower. I'm not looking forward to it - I've got plantar faciitis and haven't been exercising, and also took Prednisone to help the healing. Ooooh that's a terrible match! But I'll see if any damage was done in a few minutes.

My goals for the next week is to do my therapy without missing. I need to do stretching exercises about 5 times a day. I always find myself busy and unable to stop at work to do it. I have to learn to say NO and get this done or I'm just not going to heal permanently. So this week I'm stretching 5 times a day, and icing at least 4 times a day.

Hullo! This is my first post in the PCOS thread. I've lost a pound! The Metformin is really helping my appetite, and eating low-GI isn't as tricky as I thought it was.

I haven't been able to get over the embarrassment hurdle to exercise -- I do crunches and lunges and squats and pushups in my office where there's no-one around to watch, but I know it's not a substitute for real exercise.

Hi all

I'm actually doing pretty well. The scale at home was kind to me and showed me a new low since I bought it. My "official" scale weigh-in is with full clothes so it still weighs me a lb above my ticker weight but I'll take it

My goals are to TRY to do my elliptical every day for at least a mile or to walk at least a mile every day.

Well I lost 1.5 pounds in January. It sounds low, but I was not allowed to exercise all month and I took a round of Prednisone, so I thought I was doomed - so I'm happy.

I've already messed up with therapy. Two 12 hour days at work, eating lunch at my desk, etc. Not much stretching going on! I have two days off. Stretching ahead!

Hey that works

My latest BC pill makes me nervous. Sometimes I have spotting pre TOM, sometimes I don't. A few months ago I had spotting pre TOM but then no actual TOM. Although it made up for it the next month. This month it was the same. Although I have had some cramps but no actual TOM. What gives? Not that I'm complaining about lightness but I like consistency. I don't want to change though because I don't know how my body would react with a different pill and at least I seem to be able to lose some weight while on this pill.

Actually yes, as of Feb 1st I have gained back 20lbs from my low weight. I know that my eating has not been great but...

blah. So I am working on it. I didn't get as many exercise minutes in as I would have liked this week but a new week starts in a few hours.

Hi ladies! I'm another PCOSer. I'm currently BFing my six month old DD, which has been helping me (I think) in my weight loss. I started on 12/27 and am down 24 pounds, with another official WI tomorrow.

Default well, I am losing...woo hoo!!!!!

I am now 2 weeks into my diet and I have lost 7 pounds, while on my prednisone, naproxen and the humira. I have not started back on the methotrexate yet. I was "the biggest loser" in our little 15 person competition at work, and am in second overall so far. Too early to get too excited. But at least I am on the right track!!! Thanks so much for all the support!!!! I will keep everyone posted... Teresa

80 to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello ladies! Jenny, that's a great weight loss! Congrats to you and your little helper.

Teresa, that is really great to lose weight with steroids. You must be well disciplined. Keep up the great work!
