I have struggled with my weight and body image since adolescence. My weight fluctuated and even when I was fit, I wasn’t comfortable or confident. I was diagnosed with PCOS shortly after college. Suddenly, my hormonal imbalances, the ease of gaining weight, and the near impossibility of losing weight all made sense. My struggles with antenatal and postpartum mood disorders certainly didn’t help. I have tried many things, but I haven’t been truly successful with any of it. Even if a certain way of eating helped me feel better physically, I was still in the same destructive place mentally. It was time for a change so I started reading Chris and Heidi Powell’s Extreme Transformation.
