Small update on how things are going in my corner of the universe trying to battle PCOS and all that comes with it. 1️⃣My traps are still hanging on, and my delts are tryyyyyying so hard to make a comeback. Believe me, I want them back too 😭😭
2️⃣I'm also noticing my actual waist starting to reappear a bit. If you watched my "Something Isn't Right" video, you heard me talk about one of my red flags 🚩🚩🚩 indicating hormonal imbalance was abnormal fat storage in my midsection. While I've never been able to keep a 6 pack year round, I still had a fairly tight waistline. Seeing less inflammation (I think it's a combo of fat storage + inflammation, as inflammation as a typical response to a stressed system) is definitely a step in the right direction. 3️⃣My anxiety has been SO. MUCH. BETTER. I don't feel depressed OR excessively anxious anymore. It just kind of dawned on me the other day. I was thinking, and just realized, "Oh my gosh. My head feels so much clearer and I don't feel this immense metaphoric weight on my shoulders." Thank you Jesus 🙏🏼💛
4️⃣I've been sleeping more soundly and naturally waking up earlier. Before, I was constantly tired, sleeping 10+ hours a night, and now I'm sleeping around a comfortable 8 1/2-9 and feeling energized throughout my day 💪🏼
So ya. That's where I'm at currently. I'm going back to my reproductive endocrinologist for more testing + an ultrasound at the end of the month. I also stopped taking birth control because it did NOT feel right once again, so I listened to my body and my instinct.
Ladies, take charge of your health. Be an advocate for your health. Speak up if something feels wrong. I can do this, and so can you. Thank you all for all of your support so far in this journey 💛💛💛
