      Back in 2020 I started rapidly gaining weight. I went from 140lbs in March to over 200lbs by December with maxing out at 220lbs shortly after. I was diagnosed with PCOS in May 2021 and started taking Metformin for the insulin resistance. Although I have not lost a significant amount of weight, I was able to drop down and level off around 205lbs for the last year or so.

      That's very encouraging. I plan on cleaning up my diet as well. Thank you!

      Metformin has made it much easier for me to lose weight if I am eating a healthier diet. It really helps with my insulin resistance!
