    Decent weight losses with PCOS?

    I am wondering if it is possible and if so how to get a decent weekly loss! When you hear of others losing 6 pound a week it makes my 1/2 a pound seem pitiful! I know that any loss is good but is there away to speed things up (I am not touching metformin again!!)

    Me too, I keep failing. My hormones go crazy and I hit the chocolate and undo everything I've achieved.

    I'm doing herbalife diet at the moment and excercising I'm enjoying it and loosing 1.5 a week sometimes more but a loss is a loss. Keep at it girls, I've also avoid eating rubbish for a full 2 weeks I'm really proud ;/) x

    I've keep getting annoyed with this very same thing! Everyone seems to loose 2-4lbs a week so easily and I find it hard to get 1lb off with being really really good and lots of excercise. It's frustrating!

    I've lost over 5 stones so far, the first 4 was pretty easy. Since then it's slowed but I have toned a lot and while the weight hasn't moved as quick I have lost as many inches with the last 1.5 stone as the first 4. It is very frustrating to watch others shedding lbs in a week doing less than me.

    It is frustrating but I guess you just have to get into the mindset that a loss is a loss, and that the slower it comes off, the more likely it is to stay off.
    I get frustrated with it being so slow, although my losses havent been too bad so far (I'm on SW) but they are starting to slow down.

    I dont mind losing half lbs here and there if I can have the odd 'booster' week every now and again where I can lose 3 or 4 lbs. It is frustrating though when other people seem to be able to do it so much more easily. But all bodies are different, and if your pace is slower then so be it. Whenever Ive done diets before Ive ruined it by being impatient and then giving up when it hasnt happened so soon.
    My attitude this time is different and I understand its a long term goal as opposed to a quick fix and hoping that helps me to stick with it!

    Have any of you looked at insulin resistance and cutting down your carbs? I've got the full works of pcos, endo and fibroids and struggled to get off a total of 3 stone in the 5 years since I hit my top weight. I've lost just short of 5 stone in 7 months using a mixture of different ketogenic plans. The evidence is pretty compelling - check out Dr Michael R Eades blogs amongst many others. I'm now looking to shift a little more, but maintain in the main by adopting a low carb lifestyle using a 5:2 intermittent fasting approach to drop another stone. I can't tell you how much better I feel in every single aspect from ditching carbs, it's worth a shot

    I have insulin resistance as part of my PCOS which is why I always struggle to lose weight. I have cut down on carbs a lot but I do still have them in moderation. I am losing weight slowly and surely - If I need a bit of a boost I will cut carbs completely but while i am still losing weight whilst eating them I am making the most of it!!

    Man, I was terrified I wouldn't be losing significant amounts, especially with such an extreme diet as Lipotrim. I just didn't think that with PCOS I'd have anything above minimal losses and be inspired to give the hell up but nope, first weigh in, down by over a stone. It's working for me and I have hypothyroidism too. Shocked. Overjoyed. Overwhelmed. Feeling bloody great.

    but yeah I did hear about the ketogenic-insulin resistance relationship and I'm aware Lipotrim is a keto diet which is probably why it's working for me..

    I have insulin resistance along with a string of other horrible symptoms and I have been doing Slimming world for 5 weeks now and dropped 15lbs.

    It can be done, but you have to really want to do it. I spent so long blaming my bad habits on PCOS but you have control of your life and habits and can make your decisions a positive one!

    On slimming world, if you follow the plan 100% you can lose a steady amount each week. I am. You can also try the success express menu it really boasts weight loss, it's on slimming world page but you have to be a member!

    Decent weight losses with PCOS?

    I think it honestly depends on your body and the way pcos is in it. My friend and I did sw and we both have pcos, mines a little more severe than hers though. I've got the excess hair, missing periods , the full works. As she only has missing periods. But sw works for her and the carbs in my favour worked totally against me. It all depends. Good luck though, at the end of the day, a loss is a loss
