My husband and I have been trying for a family. We have been trying for 5 years now, with successes that have only resulted in miscarriages. Yesterday I went to my OBGYN and was given a full fertility assessment. I was told that everything looks great, except my weight. I cannot go on fertility meds because I exceed the BMI requirements. I have to be at 37 or 38 at the highest.... which puts me at a considerable amount of weight less than I am now. So, I am a woman on a mission.

I have PCOS, and 2 1/2 years ago I made the dietary switch to vegetarianism to manage my symptoms more. It worked, but now I need to be a healthy vegetarian and work on losing my gut. So, I started a profile on here (I had one, years ago) and I'm going to implement it into my aresnal to kick some caloric ass. :)

I welcome any and all friends that I may pick up along the way. So to anyone looking for a friend, someone who wants to offer some encouragement, or someone who wants another person in their corner -I'm your gal! :)

Look forward to hearing from you all as we all embark on a journey to make ourselves well.

    Heya there lady! I hope you don't mind that I added you as a friend. I read your very insightful post in the PCOS group about metformin and when I read your intro I completely relate. I couldn't have said it better. I am feeling so determined now to get my self in the healthiest way possible. I really would like to have a child with my partner. Our path was more difficult than what most face and I have been overweight for so long now. Before I hit 40, I really need to change things around! Hope your journey is going well still!
