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!

My exciting new YOUTUBE adventure!

It's been 6 months since my last blog post???!
I could have lost 60 pounds in that amount of time.

This is how I calculate time in my life. By pounds.

This little blog had such a huge impact on my life when I first started it. More then I thought it would. Your support, and getting to know people from all over, with my same goals, motivated and inspired me. Not to mention held me accountable. Which was huge. But somewhere along the way, I felt less and less creative with this little blog of mine. But I held on to it by a thread, because my blog holds a special place in my heart ;)

I've wanted to start a YOUTUBE channel for a couple of years now, but I just thought it was something I couldn't do. Until I heard a quote that pretty much changed ma whole life. "If your dreams don't scare you, you're not dreaming big enough." Couple that with YOLO, and I decided to take the leap, and stop letting fear be road block in my life.

It's been a couple months, and I have been having so much fun with it! It's also reignited my love and excitement for this weight loss blog of mine. I'm hoping to give it a nice little overhaul, to bring it up to date to where I'm at in my life, right now. Just as soon as I figure out how to do so ;)

Here are some of my recent uploads:

Hi

Its already begun...

Thousands of people across the globe are popping up left and right, bragging about
losing unwanted fat by following a simple, scientifically proven method: and you can you
catch it all here for yourself for free. --- Click Here ---

Even celebrities like Selena Gomez are giving some well deserved credit to this fast, easy,
safe weight loss system that’s not only making people drop 1-2 pounds of stubborn body fat
per DAY...

It’s also responsible for countless people dropping 2-3 dress sizes, 2-4 inches off their
waist, having flatter stomachs, and losing fat off their hips, thighs, and butt within 21 days.

See what all the buzz is about right here: --- Click Here ---

Here’s the deal: millions upon millions of people in the world sit around wishing, hoping, or
praying for a better way to lose fat, tone up, and get the body they've always wanted...

Then they try diet after diet, workout after workout, with only minimal or temporary
results to show for it.

The reason I’m telling you about this is because this is different: it’s real, it’s proven, it’s
safe, quick, and the results are PERMANENT. (No magic pills or grueling workouts
required.)

If you don’t act soon, how will you feel a year from now? What about 5 years from now?
Will you suffer with obesity, high cholesterol, or low self-esteem?

Take the first step to claim the body and the confidence you’ve deserved for a long
time — but just didn’t know how to get.
