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!

A new promise to my blog

I'm just going to say it: My blog has been straight up LAME over the past couple months (not as lame as my family blog, but still pretty lame;). I'm glad I got that off my chest.

I just kinda lost that bloggin' feelin' for a little while there, and I got a little lazy in the blog department (and the cleaning and cooking department;). I can't tell you how many blog posts I had written out in my head... I just lacked the motivation to sit down, and actually type it all out.

Over the past week, I've been thinking about how much this blog means to me. I honestly don't think I could have lost 45 pounds, without all of the support, and encouragement from complete strangers, who voluntarily go on this weight loss roller coaster ride with me. It really amazes me, and I'm so grateful for the readers of this little blog of mine. So, I'm making a new promise to rededicate myself to bloggin'.

I have 40 pounds that I have yet to lose, and I want this blog, and my readers to be apart of every step. I can't wait to write up my victory post, when I've reached my goal weight. Man that's going to be a good post... and my new promise is to make all the posts in-between, incredibly awesome, and non-lame... Well, at least I'll try ;)

Since I'm starting to think I do better on a schedule,
my new bloggin' days are Mondays and Thursdays.
I Hope you're here, reading along :)

I wrote a similar post today, although mine was about how lame I've been about reading and commenting on blogs. I think putting yourself on a schedule and limiting it to twice a week will help you keep the content fresh and interesting. I look forward to reading it.
