PCOS Challenge Coaches
Alice

Alice is a professional nanny living in the suburbs of Washington, DC. The PCOS symptom that has the biggest impact on her life is rapid and stubborn weight gain. Alice’s motivation for participating in the PCOS Challenge is her concern about her overall health and her desire to watch her unborn niece or nephew grow up. Her biggest obstacles are self-esteem and body image issues and lack of motivation. She hopes that she will gain the necessary skills over the 13-weeks of the PCOS Challenge to lose weight and feel healthier.


PCOS Challenge Coaches
Amanda

Amanda grew up on a farm in Michigan. She is married to her husband, Joe, and works as a Speech-Language Pathologist. Her biggest long term health concern is that she has a family history of type 2 diabetes and wants to prevent it from happening to her. Though she struggles with weight gain, her biggest obstacle with getting healthier is lack of motivation. She has been having difficulty conceiving a child, and hopes to lose weight during the PCOS Challenge and to successfully conceive and maintain a healthy pregnancy.


PCOS Challenge Coaches
Jaumeiko

Jaumeiko is a Speech-Language Pathologist. Her biggest PCOS symptom is hirsutism – excessive hair growth on her face. Jaumeiko has undergone various hair removal treatments, and some were very painful and left scarring. She tries to maintain a healthy lifestyle because she is most concerned about the long-term effects of PCOS such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Her goal for the PCOS Challenge is to learn how to better manage the hirsutism and her overall health.
