If you read any article or comment about PCOS (Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome ... that's what I have that makes it so difficult to make babies!) most will say "a key to help you get pregnant is to lose weight". It's true. Infact, all three times I've been pregnant, it has come at the end of a 10 to 15 lb weight loss. Well I'm desperate to have a 2011 baby ... and I realize that I need to do something to lose weight so I can acheive that goal. I do realize that my time is limited for this to happen, but I'm still hopeful!

I went back to see my good friend, Dr. Merrill, and he put me on a nice med routine that will help get the ball rolling. I have never been one to turn straight to medicine though. Don't get me wrong ... it's great! But if I can help on my own too, then the meds won't have to work quite as hard, and I, for some reason, don't feel quite as dependent on them. They are my aide and not my crutch. Anyway, I digress.

This week I joined Weight Watchers (AGAIN) with Cortney, my next door neighbor. They have a new points plus program that I have enjoyed working with. There are a few things that I'm frustrated about ... but all in all, it's been going great. I'm more consious of what I'm putting in my mouth and what activities I'm participating in. I weigh in this week and am hopeful for a decent number.

I did awesome this week! I was down 4.2 ... putting my at 182.2! My goal this week is to burn 2.4 and finally put me in the 170s. I haven't been in the 170s since I was pregnant right after Jace! WAHOO!!
