Confessions of a PCOS Health Coach | PCOS Fertility

It’s been a while, ladies! I’ve got a confession, I struggle, too! I’ve had many women ask where I’ve been and if I’m alright…thank you for caring enough to check in! Life has been a bit of a roller coaster the past 10 months and I’m not immune to the same feelings as all of you beautiful women. As silly as it sounds, being a health coach doesn’t exempt me from life and all that comes along with it. PCOS Fertility is a sticky subject and I’m opening up with a few confessions of my own.

Confession: Is there really power in a struggle?

I believe there is power in the struggle. Whatever struggle you’re dealing with, there is power to be harnessed. When we can step far enough back from ourselves to see from the outside looking in, life’s picture becomes a bit clearer.

All of what I do is preceded with prayer and laid on a foundation of God’s Word. Did you know that there is an enemy that will throw everything but the kitchen sink at you when you go forth with God’s Word? This is true for all of you who walk into work places, homes, families, fill in the blank…as a Living Light for Jesus. You all probably know what that kitchen sink feels like when it’s chucked at you. I know I do.

It can come at you in many forms:

  • Feelings of Isolation
  • Sleep Deprivation
  • Stressful Circumstances
  • Violence
  • Deception/Lies
  • Illness
  • Anger
  • Doubt
  • Negativity
  • My least favorite, INFERTILITY

Yep, you read that right! I understand that my list is short and could be much more exhaustive, but this is what has been thrown at me the past 10 months. All of it. Including infertility. {Forgive my vague phrasing. I’m aware that it can be called many things by many people depending on how long they’ve been trying to conceive or what they believe.}

Many of you know what it’s like to walk through ‘infertility.’ I won’t waste time explaining that roller coaster. What I will say is that, whether or not you believe it now, God will be glorified through the waiting when we trust in Him.

Confession: Me and My Fertility

I’m struggling alongside many of you. Yes, I’m angry and dealing with negativity and feeling isolated and having lies thrown at me by the enemy accuser. I’m also being challenged to a faith walk. I have no clue where this path will lead me in regards to conception, but I’m trusting. God has been clear with me that this (my personal struggle) is not a battle of the flesh, but a battle that is spiritual in nature. How funny of God to ask a PCOS Health Coach NOT to worry about how much coffee I drink or how much sugar I consume or how much sleep I get or how many supplements I take. Trusting HIM. No doctor visits, no progesterone cream, no crazy cleanses, you name it, none of it for me. {Please know that I’m not prescribing this path for any of you. This is MY personal walk through MY path. I’m simply sharing my journey.}

Confession: Health Coaches Struggle, Too

If you’re thinking that I’m a PCOS health coach and that surely because I have my proverbial ‘ducks in a row’, I shouldn’t be dealing with this. You’re wrong. Hear me, ladies! My fertility has very little to do with the state of my health. Yes, I am always trying to ‘walk the talk’ of what I coach women in everyday. I also encourage you to continue to strive for physical well being in regards to PCOS. God’s Word asks us, “Don’t you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own…” (1 Corinthians 6:9 NIV).¬†Physical health is important to God. His word tells us that “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.” (1 Timothy 4:8 NLT) This is the verse that PCOS CROWN is built upon.

An Invitation To Struggle And Grow With Me

With that said, I’d like to invite any who are interested to come along with me on a faith walk. You don’t necessarily have to be struggling with fertility to come along for the ride. Anybody is invited. I’m going to be memorizing Psalm 27 because there is so much truth in this short chapter to combat any struggle you may be walking through, including all things PCOS. I’d love a few Cysters to come along! Another confession. I hate memorization and often feel like my brain power can be used on better and more important thoughts. Huge Lie! Nothing could be more important for me to spend my brain power on. More about that later. For now, take some time to read through Psalm 27 to see just how powerful it is. What a weapon of victory we will have when we armed with these truths!

So there you have it. I’m choosing to have victory. Not necessarily victory over fertility. Victory over my flesh and my desires. I’m laying it down at the cross. I’m daily choosing to trust God with my path and call on Him for the strength I need. Come along!
