    Hi. I've got PCOS and have just started weight watchers. I'm not going to the classes myself as I can't afford them, but my Mum goes and I've been in the past so got all the information from her! (And she lets me use her logon for the website so I have full access to everything!) Fingers crossed I can stick to it and shift some pounds! The weight has just crept up over the last few years and I need to get it down before it gets too much! xx

    Heya. First week I lost half a stone too. Yay. Im doing it online ... Got a deal but did go to classes before. Got quite a bit to lose so going to pace myself.

    The recipes are great ... Tried a few sweet treats. Lol.

    I try not to go totally overboard on carbs as i tend not to lose much when i do but its nice to know i can have some.

    Well done and good luck ladies

    I also have PCOS and have been doing WW since August. I lost a stone and half last year on Slimming World but got bored so signed up to WW online. I lost two and half stone until Christmas but had a bit of a gain after enjoying myself too much over the festive period (8lbs - eek!!) so working to get that down now. I'm also TTC and have my first hospital appointment on 7th Feb so hoping to have a BMI of 30 for then :)

    Oh wow - you are doing brilliantly - well done! I was the same over xmas - thats another thing with pcos - not only do we find it hard to lose weight but all we have 2 do is look at a bit of cake and we r gaining! Lol. All the best for getting to a bmi of 30 - how much more do you have 2 lose? And good luck for your first appointment! :) xx

    I know, I had a huge gain. Reckon I'm about 11lbs off bmi 30 so have gone back to basics and am eating as much fruit,veg and good for me stuff as I can. Thanks, excited for appointment but scared I won't have lost enough for them to investigate so trying extra hard xx

    My pct won't give fertility treatment if you are obese so it's under 30. Some say 35 but from what I've heard the majority is 30 which means you are in the overweight bracket rather than obese. X
