I have the craziest type 2 diabetes story. I've always had polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) so I knew that I was predisposed to getting it (and my dad also has type 2). Of course, my doctor said losing weight would help for the PCOS and lower my risk of type 2.
I started going to Weight Watchers and followed the points system diet religiously. I walked, drank water, watched the portions and wrote everything down. I gained two pounds the first week.
The second week, I gained another pound. The third week I gained 3/4 of a pound and gave up.
