God Healed Me From PCOS
Thursday, September 26, 2013
I usually do not share personal information, but I felt the need to share my testimony.
Back in 1995, I was diagnosed with PCOS. I was only 19 years old at the time and certainly had NO CLUE on what it really was. I lived with PCOS for about 15 years. During this time, I would have very heavy menstruation cycles that would last for weeks to months on end unless I took birth control pills to regulate it (which I absolutely didn't care to take those pills) because as we know PCOS is a hormonal imbalance disease. I gained about 93 lbs. within the 12 years that I had PCOS. I also suffered from depression. In early 2009, I decided to lose weight. I had lost about 20 lbs. It made a difference because in late 2009, I only had one cyst on my left ovary that was about 2 1/2 inches. I continued with my weight loss efforts and lost another 12 lbs. My menstruation cycles were now normal, which was a major blessing because I hadn't had normal cycles since 1994. Unfortunately I gained all of the weight back, but my cycles remained normal. Anyhow, in early 2012, I decided to not just lose weight, but to truly get healthy overall. I slowly but surely overhauled my diet and began to really pay attention to what I was putting into my body. I also began to take exercise more seriously. Well in 2012, that cyst was about 1 1/4 inches and I had lost 22 lbs. Now in 2013, that cyst is GONE and I'm nearly 37 1/2 lbs lighter and counting. I have to attribute the eradication of this disease to God first and foremost as He is the overall Healer. I thank Him for giving me the mindset to not only desire change, but also to putting forth the necessary effort to accomplish my goals. I am BEYOND thankful for His grace and mercy upon me!
