    New to SW with PCOS - Advice needed :)

    Hi All,

    Just started slimming world on Monday (second attempt) and I have PCOS. I have struggled before to lose weight trying Weight watchers etc but after my Mum lost over 3st (and now my group leader) im giving SW ago.

    I looking for advice from other PCOS suffers for on exercise, diet and any other tips

    One thing in particular i have very big thighs. When i was 18 i sudden gained a lot of weight which resulted in a lot very horrible stretch marks on my legs. They have faded now but the skin is no longer tight and therefore my thighs are huge ( i mean rugby player size!!) Any tips on how to lose weight and tone this are in particular would help.

    I am doing extra easy and am also a veggie.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi, I'm also doing SW with PCOS - I'm 18, and am also veggie! (Doing Green plan) Have lost 10.5lb in the past month, really by limiting the amount of syns I take every day to five and drinking loooooads of water. (Though we went out for dinner the other day and I had the most cheesy, delicious lasagne which was probably about 40 syns haha!)

    Hi, i have pcos and endometriosis as well as insulin resistance and this is my 3rd time back with sw and my weight has been up and down mainly due to stress and binging, but i know its not the plan its me! I find that when i can exercise the higher impact the better, i mainly do cardio such as the cross trainer but i have also found weights to be brilliant at toning and reshaping. I find with foods that potatoes bloat me out so i have to limit them and also i have to have lactose free milk because again it bloats me out and i get stomach cramps, does anyone else find they have to limit their potato intake? i find it really hard as i love spuds! lol x

    I'm a veggie with PCOS. I just find my weight loss is slow, but not sure if that's the PCOS or just me? I try not to get disheartened when other people or losing 3/4lbs and its just a pound loss for me.....again!!! But I've started to jog this week so hopefully that'll speed things up....fingers crossed.

    Hi,

    I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 19 (now nearly 24), although I first went to the doctors about it at 15. I had many of the symptoms, but the doctor just brushed it off as me being ridiculous. If only she had diagnosed me then, I would have been prescribed metformin so so much earlier! I have lost 3st5.5lb to date with Slimming World. I usually stick to the extra easy plan, it is just so simple. I love that I can just eat and eat on it. I do lots of exercise too, I don't think I would ever have lost as much if I didn't. It is definitely worth doing. Since starting, I feel less lethargic every day, I don't need as much sleep and I am 100% happier.

    Stick with it, it will be worthwhile.

    I've got PCOS and have been diagnosed for nearly 5 years. I've been on slimming world before and lost just short of 2 stone. Its a great diet for us PCOSers and very flexible - good luck ladies!
    The Road may be long and tough but I will get there in the end, PCOS will not beat me!

    Good luck with Slimming World, I've chosen to follow a low GI diet so am hoping that works for me this time. I also have PCOS but was only diagnosed this year so now I realise why it was so difficult for me to lose weight on previous attempts!
    I am also with the OP on the big thighs - on the surface I actually carry my weight very well and people are often surprised to hear how heavy I am but if they could only see my huge legs under my clothes they'd probably understand!! I guess this will only go with exercise but I am concentrating on my diet first just so I get this right!!!

    I'm going to do the slimming world diet with low gi mixed in, which is fairly easy to do amongst all the plans. I have thunder thighs too I think it's to do with where pcos sufferers put on weight. I think the best thing is exercise. I used to do leg crunches at the gym which helped. If you do join the gym they will give you an induction and let you know what you need to do in order to achieve what you want.

    Hope this helps x

    It varies tinkan from person to person, I've lost 11lb with ww but that stopped working for me and I went back to sw and have lost a 2lb but on both plans my weight has fluctuated but I want to add that I'm an emotional eater that sometimes binges and am on medication. So it really does vary from person to person, sorry I couldn't be of much help.

    Good luck on your journey, sw is a great plan.
