About Moi
My Name is Brittany, and I'm 23yrs old. I was diagnosed with Lupus when I was 15, and then diagnosed with RA, when I was 18. I also got married when I was 18, and I'm enjoying my happily ever after with my hubby! When I got married, I was slim and trim...But not for long. After getting married, I started to gain a LOT of weight! In 1yr, I gained 50lbs! Finally, I went to the Doctor, where I discovered I have low thyroid. After being put on medicine, my weight gain slowed down, although over the next 3yrs, I gained an additional 26lbs. When I was 20yrs old, I got yet another diagnoses of Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. That's 4 diagnoses in a 5yr period, if you lost count. They all effect my weight, in one way or another. Add on top of that, my love affair with food, and every 1 of those 76lbs gained was accounted for. Being 76lbs over weight is unhealthy for anyone, but it was especially unhealthy for me, and my health issues. Since starting this blog, in Jan-2010, I have lost 40lbs! I'm a new, slimmer, and healthier me! Before losing weight, I was told I needed knee replacements. Losing weight was the ONLY tool I had to help me hold off on that life changing surgery. Since losing 40lbs, my knees have never felt better! My husband and I are also trying to start a family, but my PCOS was not going to make it as easy as 1,2,3, as I didn't have periods on my own. My doctor had told me if I wanted a baby, I HAD to lose weight. Since losing 40lbs, I've had regular cycles for the first time in my life! Which is very important when trying to have a baby ;) This journey of mine is more than me simply wanting to wear skinny jeans. It has been a quest to becoming :Deliciously Healthy, so ALL of my dreams can come true! I'm almost half way there! With each new day, I get closer and closer to my goal of 120lbs, and becoming :Deliciously Healthy!

I Have A Couple Quick Questions For You...

I'm starting to notice some weird things going on as I'm gradually getting smaller. I'm wondering if anyone has ever experienced these types of things, while losing weight:

First of all,
Where the heck are my boobs going?!?!I was a DD, but after I had lost about 12 pounds, I realized I was a D! I knew that my boobies were going to get smaller, but I wasn't expecting to lose a whole cup size, after only losing 12 pounds! Am I going to lose a cup size with every 12 pounds I lose?! I'm not going to have any boobies left!
Anyone?

2nd of all,
I've lost 1 love handle, and not the other!
Seriously.
What the heck people?!I'm not losing weight very evenly here. Not in the sense that I'm losing it in my arms, and not my legs, I mean my left side, isn't quite catching up with my right! Is this common? Has this happened to any of you? If so, does it eventually work it's self out? Is my body playing a joke on me?

Thanks!

On a side note:
My Tuesdays weigh in, had me at 187!!! That means I'm down 2 pounds since last week! I'll admit, it wasn't what I wanted to see (I was wanting to see 186-185), but I'm happy with it. I'm happy for every ounce I lose!

I doubt you'll end up flat!!! It always seems to come off where we want it to LAST - in my case, my stomach! Oh my husband is complaining about the shrinking size of my boobs. It will all work out in the end! I'm continuing to pray for your baby to be!!!! Way to go with the 2 pounds! I'll always take a 2 pound loss!

Tammy said...

2 lbs is fantastic!!! As far as the boobs go, they're going to shrink some, that's just part of it, but I promise they won't completely disappear, lol. I'm like Dawne, my stomach is the last place I lose my weight, but I have lost some in my boobs, too.

As far as the love handles...I have a fat roll right under my bra, and I have noticed that one side is much more pronounced than the other side. Totally weird, I don't know what it means, and I'm praying it all evens out in the end! :)
P.S. Send us some more food pics!

Yay for 2lbs down :} I as well have noticed my boobs getting smaller. I sure hope they dont disappear!!

Lisa said...

Oh you crack me up. When I lost my stomach seem lopsided for awhile. I was thinking is this a cruel joke or what!?!

Hopefully it will even out :)

Thank goodness you have boobs to start with. Some women have nothing when then done, since they started with little. I was a double D too before I lost weight. I didn't shrink forever...lol.

Jenn said...

OMG you are too funny! I would guess you won't lose your boobies, lol! I WISH I had boobies to begin with - even at my heaviest, I was only a B cup - blech!
Congrats on the loss! I'm sure your body will even out over time! :-)

Becca said...

These pictures made me laugh SO HARD.

The first thing i thought wasn't "OMG where did her boobs go" but "OMG look how tiny her waist is!"

CONGRATS, and don't worry, it will all even out :)

Jessica - cbgblog said...

2 pounds is great! Keep it up.

*haha* Your pics are adorable... seriously - you are the cutest thing!!!

I'm sure you will even out and as for boobs... as your waist gets small your boobs will still look big :)

Corletta said...

First of all...your blog pictures seriously made me laugh out loud! So animated...I LOVE IT! Second, you're a hott momma! SO DANG CUTE (thought you should know). Third, I can't answer any of that mess for you. I will say...I noticed wrinkly skin under my eyes because of weight loss....ha ha...WEIRD!

Meg said...

You are so funny! I wouldn't worry too much though. As Becca said, it will all even out! :)

And congrats on the 2 pound loss! You are going to be at your goal before you know it.

Loser Girl said...

I was just complaining the other day about how my right leg looks so much better than my left. I also think my stomach is a bit uneven, but I think I packed on the pounds that way in the first place. strange, but sure it'll figure itself out for both of us! I also hope my boobs don't completely vanish, they have never been large to begin with. congrats on the loss!

Joe and Brittany said...

Thank you ladies! :D

FattyPatty said...

Your pics were so cute and seriously cracked me up. LOL!

I always lose weight in my boobs first, don't know why this is. Then it stops, and hits my face, butt, thighs, hips, etc.

Oh, and on one hip I have this little fat roll and not on the other. Bodies are weird!

Keep up the good work!!

mollymariephoto said...

You guys are too funny.

Yes, it's true - the boobs are the first thing to go. But imagine trying to carry those on a skinny frame. It works out right in the end.

As far as one side being bigger, that is true for all of us. We tend to use one side of our body more.

So just relax and enjoy the ride.

And I agree with the others - your pix are really cute!

Tiff said...

Too cute! I don't have any advice for you BUT I can relate in that my right side seems to have a hard time catching up *especially in my arms. Not sure what the heck that is about! lol :)

Congrats on the loss!
