After 4 years of repeated visits to the doctor’s and hospitals for a variety of issues from 9-week long periods to anxiety, I was finally diagnosed with Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome in April 2013. With this diagnosis, came the reality that I was going to have to start taking some of the lifestyle changes I had discussed seriously. This journey is not only about weight loss, it is also about finding myself again (cliche I know). Somewhere between the panic attacks, the weight gain and the trials and tribulations of life, I forgot who I was. This is my journey to rediscovering who I am through diet, exercise and self-acceptance.
