In the time since mid-January 2012, when I started focusing on eating a much healthier, lower carb, higher protein and fiber diet and making other important lifestyle changes, I'm proud to report I've lost 25 pounds!


Living with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and type 2 diabetes can make weight loss extremely difficult, if not next to impossible. So I'm thrilled my lifestyle changes and focus on nutrition has led to such awesome results. It's extremely encouraging.

Unfortunately I've fallen off the wagon a little bit in the exercise department. I'd worked my way up to the ability to tolerate up to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise without a surefire migraine attack. I'm probably able to do less than that now because I've only been working out about once a week for the past month. A lot of that is simply the struggle with migraine attacks and not feeling well enough to exercise. I've been able to keep up my healthy eating habits despite these difficulties simply because we've gotten into the habit of stocking the house with healthy choices and not buying very many unhealthy choices.

The good news is that every single day I wake up with the possibility of getting back into the habit. Hopefully my migraine brain will be more cooperative with that.
