Welcome! Sorry you had to come here, but very glad you found us. Congratulations on your weight loss! I know how hard that can be. And I definitely understand the emotional eating when upset.

Please try not to be discouraged. I know.. I know... that's easier said than done. But there is a LOT of hope for those of us with PCOS. After a few years of treatment, I was able to become pregnant. G will be 12 this year. And medical knowledge and treatments have only expanded since then. There is definitely hope.

There also is a lot of good information out there about PCOS. One of the best places for info that I've found is soulcysters. Learning about your disease, and things you may be able to do to lessen its impact on your life, will help you become more confident and less discouraged.

I don't have any specific tips for you, because my concerns had more to do with dealing with IR. There are definite things you can do if you're IR. But since you're not, my diet tips probably won't help.

Hang in there! You are not alone.
