Like most PCOS women, I had a sudden and uncomfortable weight gain. between january and july of last year I gained between 40 and 50 pounds, all the while eating healthy and trying to stay active. While the weight went on easily, months of cardio at the gym and watching what I eat hasn't helped at all. after a month of serious working out (5 days a week an hour a day of cardio) and focusing on lean meats and lots of veggies and fruit, I had gained 7 pounds and my joints started hurting and I was in so much pain at night I was taking aleve and sleeping pills to sleep through the pain. I don't know what to do. Now I just want to be back down to my original 180, I'd be happy at just being under 200 again. Help anyway you can, I can't take weight loss pills they make me have insomnia and crazy mood swings. My doctor seems to be disinterested in my problems, he doesn't seem to really care that I've been trying, he kinda just makes me feel fat, which I am, but not in a we-can-work-together-to-help-you way, just a this-is-your-fault-you-fatty way. And with my enthusiasm for working out and my love for healthy foods ( I really love veggies and fruits and salad and chicken and I throw up if I eat fast food because my body just isn't used to that kind of high fat high oil food ) I just wish he wouldn't make me feel like such a failure.
