“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

Its been a while

It's been awhile since I blogged. Been super busy at work polishing the choirs for state assessment. I've been on Instagram and twitter just haven't blogged. I hate when I get behind blogging.

So here's what's been happening.

I got to try trader joes. Love it.

I'm still doing weight watchers online. It's going well. I'm not one of those people that drops multiple pounds a week but I am losing. Sometimes I gain but soon after I have a better loss. Overall since Jan 2 I've lost 3.4 lbs. some wouldn't be happy but I am. Considering that I've lost more in three months than I did the last two years. Pretty great.

My obgyn is working with my regular doctor and my cardiologist on what may be the final puzzle piece into why I can't seem to lose. Remember the endocrinologist that told me I was genetically predisposed to being overweight and gave me a weightloss pill? Yeah I took it for a few weeks and all my other doctors vetoed that idea. He seemed to miss a panel that my obgyn would have expected him to have done. The pcos panel for polycystic ovarian syndrome. My obgyn discussed this with me and I blogged previously but he waited until some symptoms calmed down to talk further. In the mean time my general physician brought it up and my cardiologist loved the idea. My obgyn and I chatted about a week ago.

So here I sit today doing a 2 hr glucose test to check for insulin resistance and the pcos panel to seal the deal.

I have mixed emotions here. I don't want to be insulin resistant but if I am they can treat it and it should help me lose weight much easier then in turn reversing the resistance and controlling the pcos. So there are pros and cons you see.

In the mean time. All three drs love weight watchers and my OBGYN described this to me: "your body doesn't want to change so its fighting against you. Keep fighting hard and eventually your body will give in and you'll lose better. " (all this in reference to pcos and weightwatchers) also the more I lose the more things balance out in my system and the easier losing becomes.

I just can't wait to be successful. !!!

I have attached pictures of data for these three months. Notice I have been below 200 for 6 weeks now! I'll try to blog consistently. I'll update about this insulin stuff.

  1. I just read an article that Olivia and Hannah from BL have pcos. It was very encouraging. My endo wants me to take a weight loss pill, too. I'm not sure I want to go that route, but I'm not sure what else to do. I haven't been diagnosed with pcos or anything else (other than the diabetes), but there has to be something going on as to why I'm not losing. Frustrated right there with ya. :)
