6 Weeks of Changing....for the better!

I'm totally ashamed that I've neglected my blog for...well, a really long time...BUT if you only knew how much time I've been spending in the gym, you would forgive me!

To-date, I have lost 5.2 pounds total--with NO medications!!! I wish I could express how exciting that is for me...after two years of busting my butt to lose, I'm FINALLY losing for good! I keep telling myself that ONE day, I will get married, I'll want to have kids, and I'll want to be the best ME I can be....and I will!

On another note, September is PCOS Awareness month! While I'm very aware of my PCOS many women are not, so here are some signs:
-adult acne
-significant weight gain (around the middle)
-scalp hair loss
-hair growth in other areas (face, arms, etc.)
-fatigue
-blood sugar spikes

I can honestly say that over the last 6 weeks, while I haven't been "perfect" I've never felt so good in my entire life! I'm managing my PCOS with no meds, I've almost stopped drinking diet soda entirely (not that I've ever drank much to begin with)...I ran 2.15 miles today. Last Tuesday it was 1.75... 6 weeks ago I could only do .75 and my heart rate was crazy high! I'm sleeping better. I'm more focused. And I'm so excited about being healthy!!

Oh, and here's my new favorite thing: Big Green Monster
2 cups of organic spinach
1 tbsp flax
1 banana
1/2 cup grapes
1 cup soy milk

Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Skeptic beware, you can't taste the spinach and that is a whopping 4 fruits/veggie servings!

That's the great thing about WW--I'm learning to try new things! It takes me out of my comfort zone, and its teaching me to LIVE my life and feel amazing!

Anyway, I'm done for now... I'll try to keep this thing updated more often!!
