Fighting PCOS! Kiah first shared her story with us back in 2014 when she was down 47 pounds after being diagnosed with PCOS. Today, she has lost a total of 75 pounds. Sleep apnea and chest pains are gone. Check out her latest update and find out how she did it.
“I’m down 75 pounds. It’s been a slow steady journey. This has been a three year transformation. During the first year, I lost only 13 lbs. After being diagnosed with PCOS in year two and researching better ways to heal my body, I lost 40 lbs more. Now, in year three, I’ve lost another 22 pounds and counting. It’s not just about the weight loss, so many other parts of my life, unseen by the naked eye, have been positively changed.
At the beginning of my journey, my BMI was at 65, more than double over the high risk rate. Today, I weigh 190 pounds with a BMI of 27.3. My sleep apnea is gone. My chest pains are gone. My fatigue is almost diminished.
I’m working through my PCOS symptoms and fighting for a healthier life. I’m taking back my life one day at a time. I promise you, it’s not always butterflies and rainbows, but the journey to healthy living is totally worth every obstacle, every tear, and every self doubt that you will face.
I had a vision to change my life. I visualized, planned, and put it into practice. I trusted the process. Changing my mindset was the hardest part, but once I took control and trained my brain like I was training my body, things began to fall into place.
My best advice is to trust the process and make it a priority to live consciously everyday. I thank God for the strength to fight this fight and all my loved ones for the continued support. Hard work pays off! I’m not perfect, but I never gave up on myself. #ideserve. #PCOSsurvivor
