Finally...I was the Bride!

Written by

I don't know if my weight was a factor in being single for so many years, or not, but I believe it's possible. If I'm being brutally honest (here goes), I am not physically attracted to excessively overweight people.  So when I was overweight, I would think to myself...why would someone be attracted to me if I'm 80 pounds overweight? I thought about that a lot actually and it makes sense.  Let's make something very clear; I have nothing against people who are overweight.  What I DO know is that I'm personally not a fan of MY body being overloaded with excess weight because it's not healthy for ME.

“Brittany, you're beautiful on the inside and the outside.” That's what people would tell me all the time. I never believed them about the outside part. I would dress myself to look presentable in the body that I had, but the truth is I was always pretty uncomfortable in my body. I was uncomfortable until I met Kevin. I like to call him “Mr. Awesome” because that's what he is. We were set up on a blind date on October 14, 2015 and we both went into it with very low expectations. At that time, I was about 70 pounds overweight. I had gotten used to being rejected and that's why I stopped putting myself out there. But, this time I gave it a chance. And thank God I did. He saw past the extra weight and saw the true me. He got to know my heart and fell in love with me for who I was. And because we were so happy and in love, we enjoyed a lot of going out to dinner, cocktails, etc. while we were getting to know each other. I put another 10 pounds in the first year of our relationship. That “fat and happy” thing is a real doozy but it's a real thing! I felt comfortable with him and I knew he loved me for me. Yet, I still wasn't happy with myself.

The night of Saturday, January 21, 2017 Kevin proposed to me and made me the happiest woman on Earth! The very next morning, our lives changed in the blink of an eye. I fell 10 feet off of a stage at Wedding World and suffered a brain injury. Being that I lived to tell the tale...wow, was that a wake up call. Being that I was going to the doctor more frequently during my recovery, I was having a lot more conversations with my doctor. One in particular solidified what I had known all along. It was time that I do something about my weight before it would become a real medical issue.

That brings us to the best decision I ever made. Walking in the door at NuYou Weight Loss and More in Onalaska at the end of February 2017! With their guidance and their Weight Loss Programs, I lost 80 pounds and over 80 inches (while only losing 3 pounds of muscle) in just 9 months. All of those years of suffering and being unhappy...and in just 9 months...I got my life back! Their programs work! You follow them and you will get the results. It's simple.

White Gold Luxury Gossip Magazine TemplateOn our wedding day (on our 2 year anniversary of meeting) I felt like the most beautiful bride in my wedding dress. That was something I didn't think I would ever get the chance to experience. Both; being a bride and feeling or looking beautiful in my wedding dress. Hands down the best day of my life, so far. Thank you NuYou!  See my results with NuYou Here!

Justin Kilgore's amazing experience on The Voice sadly ended this week when he was eliminated in the Knockouts but he has big plans for the future! We chatted with him about his experience and what's next:

Justin's official bio from NBC's The Voice's Website:

Age: 30

Hometown: Buffalo, Texas

Resident: Austin, Texas

Growing up in a small town, Justin felt the need to suppress his sexuality, and in turn, he didn't feel that he could pursue his love for country music unless he was hiding who he really was. In his sophomore year, he made the difficult yet precedent-setting decision to be the first male cheerleader in his town. Justin came out at 19 and moved to Austin soon after to pursue music full-time, but he was still struggling to chase his true musical passions, which led him to try pop/EDM music. Feeling discouraged, Justin ended up quitting music altogether. But when an opportunity to audition for "The Voice" came up, he could not ignore his love for country music and knew this was his chance to be the artist he was meant to be.

Jaron is a web designer by profession, but he spends all of his extra effort making his own music. Even though Jaron's parents sang together in a duo when they were younger, it was his grandfather that instilled in him a love of music. It wasn't until college that he began performing in church and singing at open mic nights. Eventually he joined a band. He even landed a publishing deal with Colbie Caillat's publishing company. While Jaron has a local following, he is ready for a big breakthrough

#TrendyTuesday #SlicedKetchup

Written by

Maybe you're someone who's thought, "I sure love ketchup, but it's just not portable!"  Maybe you've never heard of ketchup packets or you've wondered what a ketchup flavored fruit roll up would taste like. Well, a company launched a Kickstarter campaign for a product just for you! "Slice of Sauce: an All-Natural, No-Mess 'Slice' of Ketchup." 

It looks pretty gross and probably won't be cheap so I'm not sure how successful it will be, honestly. There's no preservatives and less sugar and salt, so hopefully that can make up for a strange consistancy...

Check out their Kickstarter campaign HERE

Sharane's Bio from The Voice's website:

Music has served as the only constant in Sharane's turbulent upbringing. At 10, Sharane was adopted by an older cousin while her twin sister was adopted by an outside family member. Sharane's adoptive mom was soon diagnosed with breast cancer - a battle she continues to fight today. The violin became an escape for Sharane during these difficult times. It wasn't until high school gospel choir that Sharane and her sister were finally reunited. After graduation, Sharane began traveling with bands that perform at weddings, corporate events and private parties all over the country.
