How did I say bye to the monster called PCOD?

Many of you know that I had gone through many years of infertility treatment and got conceived naturally and the journey was not easy. Obesity, pcod, thyroid, irregular periods, annovulation and infertility is all inter connected. One can't blame PCOD and say I'm obese because of Pcod because you may have pcod because of obesity, So it's a vicious cycle and the only way to come out of this is " WEIGHT LOSS" .

First I was not ready to accept that my weight is hampering my chances of getting pregnant. I too tried many ridiculous diet and I couldn't manage more than 3 days, It was in 2016 June I went through an Ovarian drilling for the 2nd time. The doctor who did that said " Every single thing inside you is perfect and the only thing you need to do is loose weight ". It was a tight slap on my face and I took it in positive way. Things I did to loose weight.

1. We cut down on eating out, ate only home cooked food.

2. Stopped reheating the foods, I ate in room temperature but never reheated as the food loose its nutrients.

3. Started having filling foods like Ragi porridge, ash gord soup, vegetables, boiled eggs etc

4. I still enjoyed home made bajjiyas and pickles.

5. Ate local vegetables only bhindi, brinjal, ash gord ,pumkin, gavar and other local vegetables and ditched all the exotic vegetables and fruits.

6. In September I got lot of energy within me and joined gym. 2 days I did cardio and 3 days weight lifting in a week.

7. Weight lifting has direct effects on ovaries so I started ovulating properly and got my periods regularly ( The reason for my infertility was also TORCH so i got treated for that and conceived naturally)

8. Completely avoided packed foods like Maggie, pasta, masala oats etc

I never hurried or try any short cuts, I relished my icecreams and chocolates occasionally. From whopping 96 kgs in June 2016 , I came down to 78 kgs in April 2017 . My goal was to reach 70 or below and get pregnant but God had different plan and I got pregnant without taking any ovulation medication in May 2017.

Diet should be our life style, something which we can follow practically. I'm also a follower of Rujuta Diwarkar so I adapted her method. Stay happy and stay healthy!
