I just wanted to post to say hello. I'm relatively new to IJ and just joined this community a few weeks ago.
I did WW about 5 years ago and lost 50 lbs, but then it went back on when I had some medication switched. *sigh* I put most of it back on in 3 months due to medication. Blah!
Anyways, I've just been recently diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary and starting to show signs of insulin resistance and my dr wanted me to get some weight off and get a look at my hormones and cholesterol numbers after two month of diet and exercise before putting me on glucophage.
I've been doing WW again for the last 6 weeks and I've got off 23 lbs so far!
I just did a round with 60mg of prednisone to cope with my asthma from the tree pollen this spring. I'm tapering off it and since I got to a lower dosage, I've taken off a couple more lbs this week. :-D
I'm in for the long haul on WW for now. I've got 57 lbs to go to get my goal weight of 150.
I started at 230 and I'm down to 207 as of this morning. :-)
I'm not doing meetings, but have the books and am doing it with my family. Both my folks are doing it to which is helping all of us. I am doing the point ranges instead of the new fixed points and flex points, if that makes sense. It's working, so, I'm not going to mess with it.
I have been working out, but had to stop for a while due to asthma flare issues and an upper respiratory infection, but I'm going to get back with the weights and bike again.
So, hi and this is me. :-)
