Before and After PCOS – Megan’s 102.6 Pound Weight Loss Journey

Megan Lost 102.6 Pounds

I have always had a weight problem as long as I can remember. I do remember it being a bit worse in my teen years, which I later found out I have PCOS so I do carry most of my weight in my hips.

NAME : Megan

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?  I often stayed home on my computer instead of going out. I turned down activites because, “fat girl’s don’t do that.”

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?  I teach sever and profound special education and I was given a younger age class that need a lot of work and physical therapy on the floor. There was one day I was working with a student on the floor and I realized that if I was needed in another place in the room whether to help another student or to assist with a student’s behavior at my size I couldn’t effectively do it in a timely manner because getting off the floor was a workout! After realizing this I knew I needed to do something about my weight and quick because I love my job so much.

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?  I decided to return to Weight Watchers.

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?  I saw results after about the first month when I noticed a change in my energy.

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?  I still don’t like exercise. But I know it’s a needed part of it and when I get my raise this summer I am going to join the gym that has a pool so I can swim laps instead of walking on the treadmill.

DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?  I have given up before, I refuse to give up this time around because I need to succeed this time for my job.

DID YOU HIT ANY WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAUS? HOW DID YOU OVERCOME THEM?  I hit a 3 month plateau but I just keep going because I knew that one day my body would give it up and stop the up 4 pounds down 4 pounds.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?  It took me 16 months to loose 102.6 pounds, I still want to loose 61 more pounds.

DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?  Yes, I found a wonderful gentlemen because I did start getting out more. And a month ago also joined weight watchers with me.

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?  My diet looks pretty similar I have just changed my portion size and I have added my fruit to my diet.

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?  I feel better and get outside a lot more and do a lot more activities with my friends because being fat is no longer my excuse.


  1. Take it one meal at a time.
  2. You didn’t get fat over night, your’re not going to loose it over night.
  3. Learn on your support system.
  4. Still treat yourself with foods you love.
  5. Find what works for you, not every program works for every person.
