Becoming a Power Up! for PCOS Representative for South Carolina

Weight: 144.8!!!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week, we’ve finally been getting some thunderstorms so the temperature was actually quite pleasant today.  My fiance and I had a great day out running errands and then cooking dinner together and taking the pup for a nice, long evening walk.  I had oodles of math homework to get done before midnight (yes, because I put it off AGAIN!!!).  In the midst of all of this, I had the pleasure of speaking with Power Up for PCOS about becoming a state representative for South Carolina.  Apparently the closest Power Up group to my area is TWO STATES away!  I plan to fix that.  I’m a little nervous since it’s just me and I have never done anything like this before.  I am going to be in charge of organizing and presenting information at monthly meetings as well as organizing a 5k for my state.  I’m really excited to take on the responsibility and hope that I am able to drum up interest in the group in my state.  If this sounds like a commitment you would be interested in, you should get in touch with Power Up for PCOS to see if there is a need for a volunteer in your area.  Their mission is awesome- they provide financial support for the inCYST Institute for Hormone Health (these two groups are two of your biggest allies when it comes to managing your PCOS).  They also have a comprehensive network for PCOS education and support.  It’s really an awesome group, and I hope that you help them continue to gain momentum and recognition in their mission.  The more support that Power Up and inCYST receive, the more they can advocate on your behalf to find answers regarding PCOS health.  Check them out, see if you can help, you won’t regret it!

    I started a support group in my area – and have been interested in converting it to a Power Up for PCOS group. At this point I don't have the mental dedication necessary to devote my time. At some point, when I'm no longer useless – I will. Glad to hear you started yours!

    Lynne,

    I have been really surprised so far at how easy they have made the process for Power Up- you seriously should check it out. It was not nearly as intimidating and overwhelming as I thought it would be. You are NOT useless- positive words and positive thoughts can make such a difference! I will keep y'all posted about the progress I'm making, but already I'm feeling pretty confident about things. Our first meeting is Thursday! I really hope you're doing well, I'm cheering for you!

    I am so sorry to just now be responding! I have been very negligent about checking my blog over the last month or so. If you are still interested, there is a support group starting in Columbia, and there is one (that is not yet Power Up affiliated) that runs in Spartanburg. We are always looking for people who are interested in starting groups, please let me know if I can help you further!
