Feeling defeated...

So I only lost 1 pound this week...but I put on 5 pound last week. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?! I even stepped it up by working out this week...I feel so disheartened.

I got diagnosed last week with PCOS. That's polycistic ovaries syndrome. Side effects of this are excess weight, excess hair, lack of/excessive mesnstrual cycle, excessive hair growth, diabetes, fertility problems...the list goes on and on. Luckily, I'm not unusually hairy and I've had a child, so hopefully my fertility isn't effected, but I do have excess weight, and am being tested for diabetes. 

It was a shock to be diagnosed with this, I didn't expect to be. I only went to the doctors because my periods where playing up, and now I have cysty ovaries. Brilliant. I asked the doctor if this could be contributing to why I find it hard to loose weight, and he said it would be, and that I should just stop worrying about it. But I don't want to give up. I am determined to be fit and healthy. The day my BMI says I am normal, will be a bloody miracle. 

So, basically, I'm just feeling annoyed at my body today. Before I would have just given up and accepted the fact that I will be slightly overweight forever. But now, I think it has made me more determined.
