150.8. The scale is moving in the right direction. Yesterday I was 152.4. I got permission to go to the full dose of 1500mg of Metformin. My weight may be down because I only got 1400 calories in yesterday due to not feeling well from the medication. I was expecting an adjustment period.
This week I've only been doing walks and yoga stretching. I am really focusing on reducing inflammation. I upped my dose of fish oil to help. Plus I'm really needing to relax about home schooling. I really don't think all these things are flaring is a coincidence.
Here's my theory: by going off Metformin about a year ago my body was slowly going back to the insulin resistant state it had been. I was on birth control so it may have slowed it down, but once going off birth control my body was getting more and more inflamed. Weight gain, acne returning. Tendinitis in my shoulder, my knee hurting while running. More inflammation.
My hope: going back on the full dose of Metformin will allow my body to calm down. Plus other supplements to help
I am very curious about the hormone levels. My cycles have been 30 days. My temp charts show I'm ovulating. That great! Seems my PCOS is mostly affecting adrenals and androgens
We shall see. One day at a time.
