Stronger than PCOS!

Kind of excited!
Just got my, "I am stronger than PCOS" teal wristband.
I ordered it HERE, and got one for my hubby as well. 

I am on day 5 of a complete PCOS friendly lifestyle. I must say I am feeling pretty good. I don't feel so tired and fatigued, and I can't wait to see how much I have lost this week. My weigh in is on Wednesday morning and I can't wait to see how this week went. 

It is a very big change to the way I used to do things and the way that I ate and lived my life. Before starting this 5 days ago, we liked to eat out at restaurants all the time, because it was quicker and easier to feed our self's that way, LOL. The fact that you order food and it is brought right to you and you don't need to spend too much time and or energy getting it to you. Now I or Mel cook all of our meals, everything is organic, preservative free, and home cooked. Lots of fruits and veggies, and nothing that has been processed or came out of a box. For those of you that may not know that is the way that a person can get the symptoms of their PCOS under control, our bodies for some reason react totally different to processed and preserved foods, it makes us gain weight quicker, feel sick, retain a lot of water. 

So I have been eating 3  meals a day and a small snack in between to keep  my metabolism moving and  my sugar levels from going crazy. That actually is my bigger problem my blood sugar levels, when I didn't eat for long periods of time and then when I ate a high fat, high sugar meal, I felt sick immediatly afterwards and before I ate I felt like I was going to faint if I din't eat something quick enough. I have started to learn when I feel a little funny and I will eat a cup of cherries or grapes, or simply eat a peach, or any fruit that is handy. Basically I have to carry a quick healthy snack with me where ever I go, because let's say I will be running errands and don't eat when I am supposed to I feel anxious, grouchy and feel like I need to eat the first thing I see in front of me. If I have something with me on the go that is in my list of "good" foods, I don't feel so overwhelmed when I walk by a burger joint or a pretzel shop.

Well that is all for today, just was so excited to share my new wristband :0)
