I chose to participate in the Jumpstart program because I was tired of feeling like PCOS was dictating my life. I felt like this disorder was holding me back from realizing my full potential and appreciating this life that I’ve been given. We have spent the last 4 years doing infertility treatments resulting in one health baby, two miscarriages, and a lot of cancelled and/or negative cycles, not to mention a heavy dent to our finances. After our most recent miscarriage this past July, I really wanted to find hope in seeking real healing with this disorder, and that is when I stumbled upon PCOS Diva.
I think a couple of my big take-aways from the 7 Day program were unlocking the power of gratitude and being powerfully positive. Walking through the exercises on gratitude has definitely changed my focus from the lack in my life (fertility, femininity, etc.) to the beautiful abundance that God has blessed me with. This has made me so much more grateful for my wonderfully supportive husband, my beautiful and vivacious daughter, and so much more… I also feel like being powerfully positive has taught me how to love myself wholly despite my PCOS. I now realize that I have the keys to unlock the PCOS cell door and all I have to do is “CHOOSE” to open it…. daily, hourly, moment by moment. I get to choose it because, I AM WORTH IT! This mindset has and will continue to improve my relationship with my husband because, if you believe you are beautiful and worth a better life, others will follow suite and treat you that way. My husband has been so encouraging through this week, enjoying the meals and cheering me on along the way. I am so blessed that he decided to jump right on board with me on this journey to pursuing a better version of myself.
If you feel like PCOS is dictating your life and holding you back from experiencing your full potential, please consider doing the PCOS Diva Jumpstart program! For so many years I have felt like a victim of PCOS. I have been trapped in the jail cell of infertility, having stubborn extra weight that is nearly impossible to shed, crazy hair loss, oily skin, brain fog, insomnia, seasons of depression, and a lack of energy. The PCOS Diva Jumpstart class has most certainly given me the keys to unlocking the PCOS jail cell. Through the class I realized what it truly means to have the power to “CHOOSE” something better for myself. I am certain that through the Jumpstart program, I have been given the skill set necessary to THRIVE with PCOS. I can now confidently say that ‘I have PCOS, but PCOS doesn’t have me!’
