    I've done exactly the same Fannyanna, I was on this board last year trying a low GI diet but it just didnt work and I didnt lose a thing! I joined SW last week and am loving the plan so far... I have done it before years ago and it did work so hoping it will this time round too - time will tell!
    Also started officially taking my metformin too - was supposed to do it about 4 months ago but kept putting it off/forgetting so I'm on a mission to turn my life around now!!


    Lost 2 stone at Slimming World in 2013 in order to start IVF treatment. Gave up the diet due to getting pregnant naturally!!

    Hey Girls,

    Looking for a bit of advice as im lost and stuck in a rut!!
    Been attending doctor since January with my thyroid and finally after 10 years been put on thyroxine thought that would help me lose weight but no joy. First month i did not bad and last month i just lost 0.5lbs and this month 2lbs its getting me down so bad! Iv been following a low calorie diet which has worked previously with me and i lost 3.7 stone in 5 months. I then gained some back so started slimming world where i lost over a stone before i stopped losing weight there. So i left as didn't feel consultant was helpful and this year started low cal diet and this previous month also low carb too (Most days between 1000-1300 cals). Im devestated to just lose 2lbs this month as tried so hard so considering sw again.

    Doctor said to me 6 years ago via blood tests that i had PCOS - I am lucky that i get periods each month but they are awful, cramp very bad almost to extent i nearly faint and very heavy, i have awful skin and horrible boils until i was put on dianette (This has cleared up alot), iv alot of skin tags and lose alot of hair which is brittle and thin. Iv never had a scan or anything and until today my PCOS hasn't been mentioned but the doctor today said she wanted to do more bloods to check for it again?

    Anyone any advice?

    Hi all,

    I am new to this group!

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 18 (now 28). I originally sought treatment for this 4 years ago but for various reasons have delayed treatment but now, it's all systems go! My periods have been VERY irregular since being 18 (for many years I had one a year if I was lucky!). I always felt a bit fobbed off by my GP/Consultant when they said that losing weight is the most effective way of boosting fertililty, however, last year I lost 2 stone and my periods came back, every month, as regular as clockwork and the same as before the PCOS diagnosis. I also had an ultrasound scan which showed absolutely no cysts on my ovaries (whereas previous scans shown both ovaries as being affected). So, losing weight DOES help. However, I then gave up smoking on 1st October 2012, put a stone back on and my periods have stopped again. However, I am not going to be too hard on myself as quitting smoking is a fantastic acheivement in itself!

    So, after years of on and off WW, I have given myself the kick up the bum I need and tomorrow, I am going along to my local Slimming World club, more determined than ever! I am keeping my eye on the ultimate prize and am going to lose this weight!

    I look forward to getting to know you all better xx

    Hi,
    I also have PCOS, diagnosed in 2003; I have all the lovely symptoms, including no periods at all! I have just started on metformin and am due to start IVF treatment in 6 weeks (the private sector accept a BMI of up to 35) but I am hoping to lose a stone before then.
    I have done SW before and lost 2 stone which I have managed to keep off, so giving it another go. Wish me luck!

    I have pcos and 3 kids. So don't give up hope girls for anyone trying.


    I did really well on slimming work last year and then in October I got the mirena coil put in and I piled on the lbs.

    Back to slimming world and motivated more than ever.

    I need to lose this weight to be healthy and happy. It's down to me. And I know it's gonna be tough but SW worked before and I can do it again!

    Hi slimming world worked for me inthe past the first time I went then I stopped going and quit smoking and put all of it bk on and more. I went back again last January and my weght just fluctuated so stopped once again. I am a bit of a serial dieter. This last month iv been eating low gi but mixing it with sw at home and I think its slowly working. Trying not to weigh myself too much because on the weeks I feel I lost I weigh and I havnt and I get really down so just trying to continue everyday like a new day x

    Hello,

    I've got PCOS with insulin resistance and my GP was very negative when I was diagnosed saying I need to lose weight but it's almost impossible to do so with the condition, I left feeling doomed to be fat forever!!

    But actually you CAN lose weight with PCOS, my short weight loss journey so far has been a little up and down but that's through my choices and not because of PCOS.

    I'm doing Slimming World and almost lost a stone but have put some on again over the festive period. Back on track now though!

    I just want those other ladies with PCOS to not feel too negatively about it, you can lose weight and take back control of your health again.

    Happy slimming xx

    Hi all

    I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 16 (27 now) I take metformin (slow release) and havent noticed a big difference with these. Been taking this since around the age 21..

    This is the first time with SW, was with WW but the sugars wasnt helping so my GP advised me to try SW..

    So far ive lost 2lbs and been doing it just over 2 weeks. Im keeping positive and aiming to my goal of IVF... Need to get BMI to 30..

    Reading all your stories is giving me so much hope

    Good luck to all you PCOS warriors xx
    Nat xx

    Hello

    I too found my GP very negative, and like you felt doomed! Since starting slimming world I've managed to lose weight and I feel so positive this time round! It's an awful condition but I have hope finally!!
