PCOS ruled my life, for years. .
It made me second guess everything I would eat, it made me feel like a crazy person, it gave me anxiety/ depression and it ruined my self confidence.
I was extremely active in high school I played all the sports and was an average size back then. It was when I started college the weight started packing on. .
At first I totally thought it was the freshman 15 everyone was buzzing about, but even when I tried to go back to the gym or ate healthier I was still gaining weight like a crazy person.
I didn’t have my period for almost 6 months, I finally went to a doctor and that’s when I was diagnosed.
I was placed on metformin and I felt like it did nothing for me and mind you metformin is made for people with diabetes which I was not diagnosed with.
The years following were awwwwwful. I still was gaining weight, random people were asking if I was PREGNANT and the fact that people were asking me when I was due and I had to respond, I’m not pregnant... mortifying.
Then I was sleeping all the time, in between college classes I would go out to my car and sleep even if I had gotten 12 hrs of sleep the night before. .
I was miserable. .
I watch a documentary called food matters, I started small with clean eating and then I slowly got back to the gym buuuuut mind you at this point I was about 200 pounds. .
I was strict on myself and never went off my eating habit or working out. I lost about 45 pounds by doing this. I felt pretty good about my size but I still was having so many PCOS symptoms daily including cystic acne. .
This is where plexus came in, this is where I started to feel like a PERSON again.
I lost 30 more pounds or so and I was able to finally maintain it. I started having normal food in my diet and wasn’t afraid to gain ten pounds by eating a piece of freaking pizza. .
Gut health happened and to this day over 3 years later, I’m still on my health journey and I’m PCOS symptom free thanks to being consistent with these products! They gave me my life back.
