I have PCOS, which stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is a lot of things with a lot of symptoms. It affects the hormones, menstrual cycle, glucose level, and metabolism. I can relate to especially the glucose level, and the metabolism. I am a PCOS sufferer who is also a diabetic. I have always been the perfectionist type so long as I can remember. Maybe it is time for me to ditch that rigid way of thinking. It has held me back; that is why it has become a struggle. I have all of the guidelines and rules and regulations that I have set up for myself. Why the struggle? What is the problem?
One thing that has helped me to leave much of the struggle mindset has been exercise. I has helped me a lot mentally, physically, and emotionally. I am a person who is starting to finally understand how much of a big step I have taken with the exercise. I am more motivated than ever to exercise. Now if I can do the same thing with the diet. I could use some guidance as far as reconciling exercise with a healthy diet. I admit that I engage in mindless eating and that I make health choices. They have been made quite often. I have no excuses, not even the PCOS. How do I go about reconciling that? All that I know is to let go and not let the pressure get to me.
