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!

Ouch!

I had a dentist appointment today, and my mouth hurts.

I'm having cramps...hopefully TOM is coming, since it was MIA the month of July.

I have a headache.

And this mornings weigh in had me at 167 for a 0 pound loss, yet again this week. Ouch!

That's all I've got for today folks.
Sorry for the painful post ;)

A nap and some medicine will do me some good.
I'm gonna go do that right now :)

Ouch! I know your discomfort...I had my period and TWO fillings in TWO days a few weeks ago. I was not happy for a few days, but it all goes away! Get some rest and I hope you feel more chipper soon :)

Thank you everyone!
It was just a filling, so it shouldn't have been that big of a deal, but it was really sore where I got the shot!

Hi Brittany,

I just stumbled upon your blog from a post you left at "Pudget". Wow, I can totally relate to your health issues. I have hypothyroidism, MS and was recently diagnosed with fybromyalgia and non-rheumatoid infectious arthritis. I'm so glad you found out about the thyroid early. I gained more weight than you after I had my first baby when I was 18 and was asking my doctor what was wrong with me and he said I needed to eat less. I've always eaten less than most people yet I was gaining like crazy. I finally found a doctor five years later to diagnose me correctly. Good luck on your weight loss journey and I'll be visiting you often, I'm sure!
Take care and you look great!! :)
