Just that really. What worked for you? Did you use supplements, medication... etc.

I've lost 8lbs in 3 weeks so my BMI is back In normal range - no diets exactly I walk twice a week 45 mins pushing a pram all up hill - go to gym for an hour a week and have reduced my portion sizes steadily my stomach has shrunk so I need less food to feel full! Also PCOS can cause insulin resistance so need to eat no sugary food I've cut snacks I just have 3 meals a day no snacks and I've switched white rice and pasta to brown it fills you up more and it's better for you! I need to go to gym more as I still want to lose another stone! Good luck I think you can control PCOS with diet mine hardly affects me anymore I used to have no periods and now I have a regular 35 day cycle!! Xx

Thank you for replying Boo2you.
I am eliminating carbs, I think my insulin resistance is out of control! Plus I'm gluten intolerant anyway.
It's just soooooo hard to shift weight, it's good to see positive stories smile

Switching to brown carbs and eliminating sugar from your diet should help insulin resistance - mine's ok since I've been doing this plus I also have a genetic condition which also causes insulin resistance so I have to keep it in check - I still have more weight to lose - I've found that by restricting my portion size I need less feel full which helps! Good luck xx
