Hey all new here. I was diagnosed w/ PCOS at the age of 14 and I've been on Metformin since. I can't seem to lose weight no matter what I do. Went from 330 to 200 in College when I was on Meridia. But in 2004 I got pregnant w/ my son and gained 80lbs!!! Then on Meridia again lost 40. Got pregnant in 2008 with my daughter and gained only 20, but can't lose an ounce.

And they refuse to prescribe Meridia, they keep pushing me towards the surgery (they need practice I guess). My husband and I don't want me to go through the surgery. So I think Medifast is my LAST option. I begin tomorrow and I am so nervous it won't work (I am thinking positive though!) Please, share your successes with me. I have tried a trainer, I have gone to the gym since January for 1 hour a day (lost a woping 2lbs on 1200 calories in that time) and I am sooooooo hoping this is a similar story for others and they found their "Miracle" in Medifast..

Good luck. Read through all materials carefully. Measure your lean and green. Drink plenty of water. Get plenty of sleep and ask questions...

Racergal..while I can't sware to anything..I feel confident in saying I think Medifast might be your key. Work the program and stay on program and the weight does come off..

I worked out like a mad woman and couldn't shake any weight. I watched my carbs and calorie count during this time and couldn't have been doing anything more to encourage my body to give it up and nothing would budge. Medifast worked.

Hang in there....come to the site for support when you need it and drink your water!!! Do all the things the materials tell you to do and read the boards. It's all very helpful..

Good luck!!..

I have PCOS and recently started metformin. I started Medifast in mid-July and have lost 33 pounds and about 25 inches..

My best weeks are when I'm on plan, keep my calories under 900, carbs under 90, and drink at least half my body weight in water (currently around 109 oz)..

I do not exercise other than walking around and doing household chores...

Good luck, racergal! I take Metformin for my diabetes, only 500 mg a day, very low dose, but I think I will soon be off of it!..

Comment #5

Good luck Racergal22!! I haven't been officially diagnosed with 'PCOS' - but I have had trouble getting pregnant and have been told I had cysts on my overies similar to someone with PCOS. I am not on medicine either. However, since starting Medifast in late Jan this year I am down 120+ lbs and am having normal cycles. So stick to the plan and you will do great and feel even better!!..

Welcome. If you push yourself and stick to the plan I'm sure it will work for you. I have PCOS and have been on Metformin for about 5 years. I have been blessed with 2 beautiful girls even with dealing with PCOS. I too looked into the different surguries, but just didn't feel like those were the best choices for me. I started June 4th and I have lost over 50lbs.

This plan controls your carbs and allows for weight loss. You can do it!!..

Good Luck! I have PCOS (it runs in my family). This is the first program I've really had success with, but I've had really good losses so far....
