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!

Hi

It's been too long since my last post. 
I'm not quite sure how to get back into the swing of things again. I have so much to say about my weight loss journey, and what I've been going through for the past 3 months, but I have no clue how to say any of it. So, I'm just going to start by saying, "Hi".
 And "Thank you" for all of your support and emails.

It's been a rough few months, but I'm not giving up. I just decided that today.  I'm pretty darn excited about it.

The quest to becoming :Deliciously Healthy continues...

(remember Bell? Yeah, she got big:)

I'm so happy to see you back. I had a feeling you were on your way back to posting when you left me that comment the other day.

Bell is a doll! I love that goofy grin she has on her face.

It can be hard getting back into the swing of blogging... just like weight loss. Seems the two go hand and hand kinda tho - that we blog when things are good and we are in control - when we deviate, or we're bored, or we're failing - I reckon it's hard to keep blogging. Speaking from my opinion of course, I know others love blogging in the bad times. Welcome back.
