Waiting & Hopeful

I'm waiting
I'm waiting on You, Lord
And I am hopeful
I'm waiting on You, Lord
Though it is painful
But patiently, I will wait

Sometimes it's hard to wait. Actually, most times it's hard to wait. Especially when you are waiting on something that you so desperately want. And in this case, I think not only do I want it. I need it. The more and more I read about PCOS, I realize that I just can't go on living with it and not be treated. It could cause serious problems.

I think the biggest issue for me is weight. I've lost a few ounces shy of 50 pounds since November of last year. Which is huge. I mean - fifty pounds in less than a year?? That's impressive if I do say so myself. But I need to lose more. About 30 pounds. I was over weight when I got pregnant with Lilly. Which now looking back, I gained a lot of weight when I went off birth control. Which means I wasn't having cycles...more than likely due to the PCOS. All the puzzle pieces are finally coming together.

I've lost and maintained two pounds this week. I know that it doesn't sound like much...but it's big for me. I read that even losing ten pounds can help with PCOS and even sometimes triggers ovulation.

And ya know, with all of these crazy things happening to my body here lately... I have started to realize how complex the human body really is. It's absolutely amazing how God created us.

I only wish my body did what it should be doing...instead of causing me so much grief...
