PCOS & #PSPfit


Today at 4pm EST, I’ll be doing a live #curvyconvo chat on about PCOS on twitter and facebook. PCOS stands for Polyciystic Ovarian Syndrome and a LOT of Plus Size Princesses have it, whether they know it or not.

I have PCOS and I think its important to discuss it from time to time because there is often a connection between the syndrome and weight. My initial post on PCOS can be found here and a small debate about PCOS and weight can be found here, you can also click on the PCOS tag on the blog to see everything we’ve discussed so far.

The conversation will continue this afternoon at 4pm, hopefully you’ll log on and share/ask questions.

Now onto our Plus Size Princess Fitness Challenge! You guys are inspiring me by hitting the ground running this week, here are a few of the girls who are rocking this challenge by eating well, working out 4 times a week and logging their efforts on twitter/instagram:



We are off to a great start! #PSPfit

    Crap, I can’t believe I missed this.
    I apparently was struggling with PCOS. Once I had it under control- voila, 75 lbs gone.
    It’s absolutely ridiculous. I also had a cyst explode in September which was probably the worst experience of my life. So painful.
    Anyway, the key to working with PCOS was really just the fact that I acknowledged that something was wrong with me. It stopped me from getting demotivated all the time.

      How did you get it “under control”?

    I just want to say thank you! They aren’t enough people out here talking about pcos and the effect it has on you to lose weight. I myself have it and struggle to drop weight no matter what I do. Also my boyfriend thinks that it’s just an excuse to why I’m fat! He doesn’t get it!
