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!

Not Quite

I got the sudden urge to try on my goal dress. I kept telling myself it wasn't going to fit yet.... but in the back of my mind, I was hoping it would.Nope.
Not even close really.

Wait! What if I suck it in?!
Like really hard?!Then again, maybe not. That made me a little light headed.
You watch.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go ask my husband if he can help me get out of this!
I'm stuck. Hopefully we won't have to cut it off ;D

OH those pictures are priceless. You & the camera get along well. You'll get in that dress, soon enough we'll see pics of you in it I am sure. I tried on a shirt this morning I haven't been able to wear in years. Almost. I can button it. But if I sit down the line of buttons bunches and puckers. So maybe in a few weeks.

Oh you look beautiful! I laughed at how funny you are to take the progression of photos, but honestly- I thought the dress fit! I mean, it certainly hugs your body, but it's sexy and form fitting- and you're gorgeous so go with it!

Too cute! I have a feeling you'll be donning that dress before you know it. Keep it up, you're doing so well.
