stressful, life-changing events and many other things have caused a slowing down of weightloss. i've even felt some weight gain..dun dun dunnn..
i've found it so hard to lose the weight no matter how hard i've tried! gave up a time or two..and it seems like..when i try to treat one thing..another one arises..i'm dealing with alot of things right now, but my main battle/WAR right now is the WEIGHT..
i was praying to God, asking for guidance and wisdom on what to do. i was asking WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME? WHAT IS THIS? i could here him say, GO BACK TO THE BEGINNING, the source...check the center. He started bringing things to my memory..and BOOM...PCOS. that's it..i was diagnosed with it a few yrs back...BUT NEVER TREATED. and i'm kinda upset that there are meds out there that could help me but they never offered them..smh..
