    Hi Guys,

    I have PCOS and one of the side effects is weight gain. My partner and I decided to TTC about 2 years ago with no joy :-(

    I've been advised by my gyne that weight loss may help. So I've joined slimming world!

    Just wondering if there's any other slimmers out there in the same boat? Or do anyone have a weight loss success story to motivate me and maybe others?

    It would be great to hear from you.

    I have PCOS too and yes one of the side effects is gaining weight and finding it hard to shift it (IMO not the worst side effect if you suffer from acne with it too!). The doctors always say losing weight will help with the symptoms but for me I got the symptoms and diagnosis when I was at my slimmest after losing my student weight after Uni!? I like to buck the trend :D It's all to do with insulin like a diabetic which is why losing weight can help the symptoms in some cases.

    I have an underactive thyroid too which slows my metabolism up so a double whammy. But on a positive note as you can see from my stats, I have managed to lose weight. I have to be very strict with SW and not have too much 'free' food despite what the diet is supposed to allow me, and only 1 HEXA on a green day and not 2, but now I know what my body likes and doesn't like I'm losing a steady pound a week on average. I don't get the losses others get because of my medical problems but slowly losing it is better than not losing it at all :)

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for your reply! Do you have any children? How long did it take u to lose weight? I'm soooo glad I'm not the only one with pcos. I used to have terrible acne but I started to use clinique anti blemish 3 step and the wash. I also use the anti blemish foundation and within 6 weeks it cleared by 100%. there's not a spot on my face now! I tried millions of products before that and it's awful so I really feel for you xx
