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!

The Scale and I are NOT Getting Along!

After the scale told me I weighed 172 this morning, for a 1 pound GAIN, we've been giving each other mean glares all day!It's been mean to me for the past 3 weeks (In that time I've lost 0 lbs), and I'm not going to forgive it, until it apologizes, and tells me that I've had some kind of loss!
I mean come on! What did I ever do to you?!

Between you and me, I think little miss scale (is your scale a girl? I think mine is. And she's ALWAYS PMSing!) is starting to go a little crazy. I'll step on the scale and it'll tell me one number, and then I step on it again, and it tells me something else! It goes back and forth, until I give up! On top of that, it never tells me I've lost .5 or 1.5 pounds anymore. It's always the exact number. I've either lost, or gained 1 or 2 pounds, and never anything in between.
Poor thing has lost her mind. I think I have to get a new one, before miss scale makes me lose my mind too!

Any suggestions on what kind I should get?

Well, there you have it. I've gained a pound this week, and the scale and I are officially not speaking to each other!

Oh, and it's TOM... so maybe that little monthly gift has to something to do with it too...

Whatever ;D

In your case, I'd take the pound for a period sweet Britt!

Tami, at nutmegnotebook.com always says the only truth teller is your clothes. The scale lies, takes time to catch up with your body and is basically a nuisance, yet one we must deal with.

I feel your pain. And, I'm rooting for that TOM! Because, I get the desire of your heart and I'm praying a baby into your lives.

I have the same trouble. Up and down it goes in one setting. I don't get it either.

Cute pic :)

Love the picture...too funny. My scale is a boy...the bad boyfriend you know you shouldn't keep going back to but do anyhow...

Hopefully your scale will start moving again soon. I know she has to be a little threatened by your stare down, so I'm sure she'll give you a better number soon.

What a funny & cute photo :)

I put my scale away for a while...just am tried of it!

Our scale is loopy too. Like you, get on one number, then another. So I keep going until i see the same number 3 times and then go with that. It shouldn't be that way, but over the years I've have a half dozen scales and they all do that. SO I have resigned that on weigh in day I get on 4-6 times to get one number to appear 3 times.

Good luck on getting the scale to be nice on your next weigh in - go gett'em!

Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog last week. Sorry I'm so late in saying thanks.
I'd definantly say that 1 lb has to do with TOM, I always gain or stay the same when it's my turn. Cute picture, even if your scale is a little pissy.
My scale is a boy...dunno why though.

Meg said...

Love that pic! My scale does the same thing to me...shows one number one minute, and another the next! I think all scales are out to get us. :) LOL Don't let it get you down though...anything related to TOM is a good thing! :)

Since I've started blogging, I have lost 18 pounds. Probably really about 20 something, but I've fluctuated a TON. Since I started in 2007, I have lost and kept off 50 pounds!!!

Melissa said...

Of course TOM is your issue! I usually gain at least THREE during that awful week! HAHA. You are so cute! I love this post, you're funny. Don't worry - it'll go back down again! :)

Anini said...

I hope the she appologizes to you soon.. haha
