HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I love to read mostly thrillers and some chic lit, games, movies, fishing (which really amounts to holding the pole while DH does the icky stuff lol)

PETS: 3 Dogs Patches, Freckles, & Mushie and 1 cat named Honey (who really thinks her name is "Meow Meow")

EYE COLOR: Hazel

HAIR COLOR: Reddish Brown

OCCUPATION: Keeping hubby organized in our Construction business.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: East Texas, USA


WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: When I eat something that is less than healthy I have the tendency to throw in the towel all together. About a month into dieting seems to be my most challenging time.


WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: There are several reasons. I was just diagnosed with Type II diabetes which completely scared me and DH and I have been TTC our first baby for 3 years now and not only want to have a baby badly but want to be in shape and good health to keep up with our child and be around for all the wonderful events in their lives.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm originally from Long Island, NY and now living in Texas. Since I work from home I've not met a whole lot of people here so poor hubby tends to be my only support right now. I'm looking to meet some great people who understand the struggles of both losing weight and ttc with PCOS. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was about 18. Basically was put on BCP and didn't think much about it until I got married and wanted to get pregnant. I'm on the SBD and since losing 16 lbs and starting 2000mg/day of Metformin and 10 mcg/day Byetta (for the Diabetes), I have started regular monthly cycles for the first time in 3 years, so I'm more hopeful than ever that I'm on the right path to babyhood!

Phew, hope this isn't TMI lol. Looking forward to getting to know you all better!

NAME: Charisa

AGE: 18

BIRTHDAY: August 29, 1988

LOCATION: OH

CURRENT WEIGHT: A week ago it was 276 lbs. No clue now, since my meds are still messing w/ me

GOAL WEIGHT: 2 sizes down (I don't go by numbers, that's the doc's job)

HEIGHT: 5'3"

EYE COLOR: Gray w/ green in middle

HAIR COLOR: Auburn red

OCCUPATION: Student of Business Administration and a PSEO student through my high school

MY BLOG: Forbidden Silk

INTERESTS AND HOBBIES:

I study Japanese, listen to music, watch anime, play video games- ZELDA is a MUST, love to wrap presents, I have a neice- 5 and a new nephew, my bestest friend is my male cousin, it's foggy and 7:30AM while I am typing this, my other friends are Tylenol Arthritis and SLEEPING, I have hair down to my "little" butt, I love taking pictures and writing my various anthologies with my Marz and the gang, LOVE romance stories with steamy guys, etc.

THINGS I DON'T LIKE:

Meanies, looking at skinny girls (guys are great!!), loud music, ER stuff, BDSM (creeps me out), shows that should be 1 hour but never are, blackouts, allergies, cats, my Senior pictures, etc.

MORE ABOUT ME:

Well, I was diagnosed less than a year ago with PCO and insulin resitance. I had gone to a dermatologist and HE tried to diagnose me and I got really sick b/c he was WRONG. Then I had to deal with a screwed up period and I was all MENTAL for months afterwards.

You see, I have always had allergies, but they had become UNCONTROLLABLE. Now, shots have steroids in them, and I was on those for 2 years before I was diagnosed. Now allergy shots can mess with your insulinand all that, so the buggers made me worse.

This was all the past summer. It's December now, and I went to an endocrinologist, a really nice old guy, back in Nov. (?) and he got me all fixed up on these new meds and everything. He was the one that said I had insulin resistance. I'm really grateful to him because I've had this for most of my life.

I've had horrific rashes and I was in so much pain, physically, emotionally, mentally... I've had signs of this ever since I started puberty and NO ONE would listen. We went to all these doctors and all of them said I was fat. I've never eaten that much and I can't see what being "fat" has to do with being somebody's fault all the time, right? I couldn't help that I was 12 and gaining 50 pounds a year! I couldn't get anyone to help me.

Well, anyway, I started to get acne when I was 8, and then my period at 11. I got hair on my neck in the past few years. My periods have always been regular, but I got this rash and I've always burned or stung really bad in my "girl part." It was ALL the time, and only got worse when I would pee. It was VERY painful. I would cry and I couldn't walk. My teachers didn't care, and gym class was ****. I'm sure some of you know what it's like. With all that.

One of my docs put me on birth control which made me REALLY sick and PSYCHO. Now I'm on Spironolactone, 4 pills, to make me pee out all the baddies, and Metformin, one pill. The Metformin makes me VERY sick, so I have to ake it really slow before upping any doses, and I can only half a pill at a time.

Oh, and I still have the rash, which is "there," so you can imagine how painful living has been. And I have a VERY expensive cream for it.

The Spironolactone and the cream are NOT cheap. And insurance won't pay. Jerks. What to do???

I've also been pretty tomboyish all my life. I always hung out w/ my dad and older bro. Awesome dudes. So, I never really cared when I become very muscular and when my voice changed a little during puberty.

I have this pic of me in the 5th grade. I am HUGE, like 2 feet taller and a bit wider than everybody else. NOW, I am short and wide! XD

I have hairy arms and I don't shave my legs b/c I only wear long pants anyway. My leg hair was very nasty, but it seems to have gotten a bit better. The neck hair doesn't grow out as fast now, and I can actually shave my armpits b/c they are not so course anymore. My facial hair doesn't bother me. To ME, it was just another thing I could do with my dad, shaving. I think it's cool, cus girls can't just "get it." And I like how strong I am. Bro says I'm an ox! :P

I HOPE I have remembered it all. I don't suppose I have to go through the teasing, making fun of, ridicule and whatnot, do I? I think you gals all understand, right?

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have been fighting a tough battle with PCOS and depression for years. I lost a lot of weight on the South Beach Diet two years ago, but gained most of it back. Now I'm back on the SBD and currently in Phase II. Taking Metformin XR (500 mg pill twice a day) and Yaz. Oh, and my addiction to carbs doesn't make things easier!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: An increased commitment to exercise. Cardio 3-4 times a week at the gym, and resistance training 3 times a week. Trying to do yoga once a week as well!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Trying to stay motivated for long periods of time, and getting people around me to support me in my diet/weight loss goals.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I am currently going through a divorce. He likes that I am fat so that no one would want me. So, I am about to lose 200 + lbs real quick like.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I was diagnosed the summer '06 after having a second miscarriage. I was determined to find out why this was happening to me, so I kept bugging the Drs. Well I went in to the hospital to have the D&C and my sugar was 185 fasting. So my OBGYN suggested I see a endocrinologist. He just asked some questions and looked me over. He then diagnosed me with PCOS. I currently take metformin/glucophage and I recently started working out and watching what I eat just as he suggested. It's hard but I'm trying. I am an certified emotional eater. Going through all the divorce stuff has kinda stolen my strength. Everytime we fight or he does something stupid here I go to find something to "make me happy". So I am glad I found this website. I have found great information and support so far.

TOP WEIGHT: 226

CURRENT WEIGHT: 226

GOAL WEIGHT: 150... but to start with, 190 by June

HEIGHT: 5'5

OCCUPATION: Student

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Virginia


WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Normally, I hit some "crisis point," either to do with blood sugar through the floor or some emotional difficulty - a paper, feeling tired, feeling low - that I would normally self-medicate for with food. Then I cave. I have very little will power because I've always used food to make me feel good, emotionally and physically. When I'm feeling stressed or tired, it's the first thing that gets sacrificed.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I started the IR diet on Monday. Admittedly, this is only day 3, but I feel so full of energy! I'm amazed at how wonderful it feels not to be cycling through periods of high and low blood sugar. I'm sleeping better, I'm less anxious, and I really can go for long periods between meals without eating. My soda and chocolate cravings are basically gone. It's a miracle. I want to keep it up, even if I don't lose, because I feel so much better!

CHILDREN/AGES: Matthew, playing in heaven since 12/20/95, and two M/C in 2000 : Want to TTC again as soon as I lose some weight

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Scrapbooking, shopping, music,reading, tattoos, Native American lifestyle and art, travelling, cooking, photography, movies, love to hang out with family and friends!

PETS: None

TOP WEIGHT: 252

HEIGHT: 5'5

OCCUPATION: Student now, was in nursing until I broke my back in 2005

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Currently SW Washington State, tho am originally from Montana and just moved to WA from Oklahoma...whew!


WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have a really tough hard to break habit with carbs! I love salt too...and when having a bad day, nothing is better in the world than a Pepsi! Sometimes I feel like I don't have a very strong support system to help with my weight loss, and more than anything I would love to have some online buddies to encourage each other. I have a broken back (a story in itself) and it has made excersise a bit more difficult as well as arthritis in my knees. This is not an "excuse" but it makes working out/swimming/ etc so much more painful.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I more than anything want to be able to have another child!!! But with the PCOS and also being diabetic it has made it a challenge, I am sure the weight issues don't help. This time, I acknowledge I have a problem and am ready to deal with it! I know I can do this!!! I am being treated for the diabetes as well as the PCOS with Metformin 2000 mg/day.
