Hey BoldQueens,

By now, most of you know that I have PCOS- polycystic ovary syndrome and after being on this healthy journey for almost a year and now the weight that I recently lost is packing back on.

Now I’m not one to complain, but don’t you just hate it when someone sees you for the first time in a while and the first thing they say is ” wait you like you put on some size *said in bajan dialect *. ”  That’s been happening to me  for the pass few days  and during those times I usually get defensive. The struggle has been so real and with every passing day I just get angrier and angrier. If you didn’t know I’m telling you now that to maintain and keep a size that would allow my period to come normally is so much hard work, time and money.

These few months trial and error has been my best friend and even though I’m coming up with a lot of errors I’m still quite determine to keep on my path to keep my PCOS as control as possible.

Now you are probably wondering what’s my secret in dealing with all of this and I know from experience that we as humans tend to get:

  • frustrated ,
  • depress or
  • downhearted when we don’t see results.

During this time you usually have two choices do nothing about it or get up and act on the situation. I chose to act on the situation and gladly enough I’ve been blessed with a wonderful team of positive individuals . What I realize that even though in life we may not reach certain goals we placed out for ourselves , that should never deter us from pressing on or trying something new.

Whether you believe it or not there will be days where we run into individuals who may not understand our current situations and instead of arguing or trying to defend yourself its always best to say thank you and move on. For it’s been said that time wasted is time never regain and within that space you could be taking that opportunity to discover a new talent or skill you never knew you had locked inside.So instead of focusing on tomorrow or next week focus on today and living in the now the best way you know how.

    Hi Ashlee, this is my first time on your blog and I am very impressed with what you have accomplished here. I am not familiar with pcos but I am very familiar with gaining weight back I have lost and how depressing that can be. I am a big beautiful black girl and I am proud of myself however I do want to be more healthy, with that being said I hope we can encourage each other with our daily struggles.
