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!

Back From NYC

We had an amazing trip to NYC.
View from our hotel (Mandarin Oriental):

Grand Central Station:

Sailing on a 120 year old sailboat:

Getting ready in the hotel room:

Date at serendipity for frozen hot chocolate. We sat at the same table as in the movie!

Last night in NYC. My hubby took me on a very romantic date:

And then he surprised me with an in room couples massage. He's so ramantical:

 We ate lots of deliciously unhealthy food. Not even gonna lie. But I am ready and excited to get back to my goals!

Have you ever been to NYC?
What's your fav thing to do there?

Love NYC. I go a couple of times a year. There is a lot to do and a lot to eat!! We always make time for breakfast at Sarabeths Central Park South location. Love their eggs and scones! Looks like you had fun!

You two really perfect! Even though that you are already married for years, but your husband doesn't fail always to make you happy.

Your body is an absolute reflection of your healthy lifestyle choices. For the most part it is very basic to tell what someone thinks about their own health which is seen in their physical body and how they look.
