So the fun begins again. Stephen and I have gone back to South Beach – well, more officially this time. We’ve been eating somewhat Phase 3-ish, but haven’t been as strict as we could have been.
Then I spoke with my gyn on Tuesday. This pcos is something else. If things aren’t back to “normal” in two months, my doctor wants to put me on a medication that’s a potential abortifacient. I’m not exactly ok with that. . .so I decided to do what I could to help things along.
One thing that really helps keep my pcos in check is weight loss. Right now I’m still 15 pounds above my pre-pregnancy weight. I guess that’s not bad, but I really want to be at least back to where I was. Then I’d like to lose another 15-20 pounds. . .maybe. . .I haven’t decided on a final weight yet. I have a target number in my head, but am not sure if that’s realistic or not. We’ll see.
So today we started Phase 1. We didn’t follow the phases exactly the first time around, but now I’m going to try to stick with them to try and jump start things. Since moving back here (and it’s been a year and a half now), my sugar cravings have returned. It would be great if those would go away again – and quickly!
Today’s officially Day 1 of Phase 1. Here goes!
