PCOS, Updates, and more..

Hello my lovelies!

Well, it’s been a while! Wow, February? Dang. My punishment shall be swift! That punishment? The horrible agony of realizing I’m a really bad blogger(though technically this is wordpress. So shouldn’t that be wordpresser? ). I’m working on it. Life, as I’m sure you know, gets busy and sometimes we forget to do things. I won’t promise I’ll be amazing, just that I’ll try harder. This is more for me than anyone else anyway.

So, quick update. I haven’t lost a pound. Seriously. I’m still hovering between 216 and 220. I’ve been to the lady doctor and she thinks I have something called¬†polycystic ovarian syndrome. Which is a very large and scary word, not as scary as “thyroid cancer” but hey, nothing’s as scary as cancer….except bears. Bears and bee’s. Bears with bee’s in their mouth…yeeeeaaahhh, that’s a bad thought.

I’m going to call it POS(They call is PCOS but POS is so much more amusing), since I’m a fan of saving time on big words when it doesn’t matter. So the Mayo Clinic, WebMD, and the government all have lots of info about POS(PCOS). It’s great information and stuff I should probably read at some point. The skinny is basically that I can’t lose weight right now, among other things. My hormone’s are apparently all messed up and it’s causing some other things I didn’t even notice to happen. The great news is that I probably don’t have a thyroid issue, but the bad news is that until I get treatment I will not shed a pound unless I burn upwards of 3k calories a day.

Which leaves me in this weird stuck place. The great thing is that I’ve stopped the weight gain, which is important. I have to continue working like I’m going to loose the weight because if I slack I will start gaining weight. That sucks, all the work with none of the results! Oh well. I’ve been told that once we figure it out I will likely start shedding pounds and that I will have to be careful I don’t drop the weight too fast. I don’t really have a problem with that.

So, that’s the weight loss update. The rest of the update is that you might see this space changing some. I’m aiming to start using this as my website/”Hey I want to talk about this” place. You, the reader, might see me doing reviews for products, or video games, or talking about things not related to weight loss. I’m trying to manage my online persona (since some people have been using my name to do not to nice things) and keep it the positive way I am, this means promoting this and other sites and I thought it might be nice to just consolidate my blog and try not to limit creative writing self and be super spread out in several blogs that I never keep up with.

In the short this means I’ll have the occasional posts talking about something not really related to weight loss, but I think a good portion of my posts will be about that and my struggle with POS for quite a while.
