Wow! I guess I really haven't followed through with tracking my weight loss efforts. These past few weeks have been hectic. Nothing has changed significantly weight wise. My total weight loss however is now -22.4 lbs. Not bad but still not great.
Things are about to change in my life though. The hubby and I had our first appointment with an RE today. My suspcions were confirmed. I do have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). It was quite apparent on the internal ultrasound. Our RE was very informative. He did express my excessive weight will make getting pregnant, staying pregnant and having an easy pregnancy difficult. He really made me nervous with the kind of birth defects a baby could have if I were to be pregnant at this weight. The RE did give me a prescription and directions for Clomid. He was not discouraging at all but it got me thinking. We definitely want to start our family but why add an additional risk?
After our appointment, the RE sent me for some blood work. He wants to see what some hormone levels are like and to see if by chance I'm ovulating now. (I highly doubt it.) I'm supposed to call his nurse tomorrow to find out the results of the tests. When I talk to her, I'm going to express to her my concerns with staying at my current weight and starting Clomid. The hubby and I had a nice long chat during lunch and decided I'm going to work hard (joined a gym after lunch) and loose at least another 10% of my body weight then start the Clomid.
I'll be attending my first Zumba class tomorrow night. I've been working on recipes from Hungry Girl's and Rocco's Dispirito's cookbooks. Some of the recipes are to die for!
