My weight problems first started in 2004 when my dad died, I quickly gained from comfort eating. In January 2006, I started losing weight quite well. 06.06.06 my periods started (I'm pretty sure I'm now doomed because of this!) I started putting on weight again, acne came back with a vengeance among other things. I wasn't diagnosed for another 3 years because doctors told me that they just take time to settle. In September 2009 after an ultrasound and blood tests I was diagnosed with pcos, I wasn't given any treatment but was sent to a dietician with no success, I see the dietician on the 17th March (my mums birthday) and I hope she will write to the doctor and then I'll get treated properly. I have a lot of weight to lose, I wish to lose 9st (144lbs). Hopefully next year I'll be able to blog 9st lighter !
