Before completing the 7 Day Jumpstart, I had given in to PCOS and my unhealthy eating habits. They controlled me and I knew I had to do something about it. Throughout the program I found I was spending more time planning and prepping. I found breathing exercises are a helpful way to start and end each day. Since completing the Jumpstart Program, I have more energy. I have learned how not to be a victim of PCOS and my eating habits. I can now say “no” and work through perceived cravings. I have been doing Yoga and found it is not only a good source of movement but also helps my bad back. In addition, I have lost some weight.
I had been aware of the PCOS Diva site, newsletter and Jumpstart for a while. This January I decided I wanted to do something to improve my health and outlook. I liked the look of Jumpstart because not only was it about food, it’s so much more than that. I feel that in the past the reason I always failed was it was only about healthy eating and not about my state of mind. Amy’s emphasis and support for self care is amazingly powerful for me. I now even read a book in the bath as part of my relaxation routine and as a librarian I never thought I’d manage this!
