About Me:

Hola! My name is Brandiann and I have lost 70 pounds since I became a member of Spark People and I've had 2 amazing kiddos!

I realized my dream of becoming a mommy to my little boy Maxuel Enrique in December 2010 after struggling with infertility due to PCOS for about 3 years. I am so blessed and thankful for this miracle.

Most recently I was blessed with a beautiful healthy daughter, Zoie Alegria in March 2013. She is amazing!!!

About Me:

Hola! My name is Brandiann and I have lost 70 pounds since I became a member of Spark People and I've had 2 amazing kiddos!

I realized my dream of becoming a mommy to my little boy Maxuel Enrique in December 2010 after struggling with infertility due to PCOS for about 3 years. I am so blessed and thankful for this miracle.

Most recently I was blessed with a beautiful healthy daughter, Zoie Alegria in March 2013. She is amazing!!!

I'm 31 and I live in Akron, Ohio. I recently became a landlord and bought a perfect house for me, my man, and my kiddos that has a ton of character and charm.

My family speaks Spanish at home, so I'm bilingual, which is really neat. We try to teach the kiddos Spanish, but it's difficult at times because they are surrounded by English. They understand pretty well and are just learning to speak back to us.

Motivation:
My motivators are my health, increased energy, and being healthy for my current and any future babes I may have.

I have been using SparkPeople since 2008 and lost enough weight to become pregnant (3 times now) even though I have PCOS. Now, I want to reach my goal weight of 180 within the next year.

A LITTLE PROGRESS ~

Right now in this very moment you can make a little bit of progress. There's something productive and useful you can do to improve your world and your life. // It may not seem like much, and yet it can make a big difference. Because even a little progress is progress in a positive direction, and it's infinitely better than doing nothing. //
You can waste this moment or you can use it. There's a world of difference between those two simple choices.
Though you may not immediately achieve anything stunning or momentous, still you can achieve right here and right now. And once you�'ve achieved, it will feel so good you'll jump right in and achieve again. // This is your day and this is your life. It's happening right now, and you can do something wonderful with it. // Give the value of your effort to this moment, and you'll receive much more value in return. Here is your chance to make a little progress, so do it. ~Ralph Marston

AMIGAAA!!!! I've missed you! I was thinking of you the other day. Como has estado? I've been somewhat MIA from SP for a while, but I plan on being better about it since I'm trying to be better about getting healthy.

Hi, Thanks for the add and the comment on my page. So far the whole 30 is great, but I have not had to eat out yet. I am a bit scared of that.

I've been thinking about you all week. I am finally getting over the fear that's been holding me back and I think I'm finally ready to do something about this infertility. I'm starting with diet. I really want to focus now. It seems like everything is lining up and pushing me towards action on the matter. I dont even know how to explain it more clearly. Can you tell me again what plan you were doing. I think it was something 30.

hola chica! How are you doing? I've been thinking a lot about you lately. So the last few years I've been focusing on school and work and the house and just every day things. But these last few months I've suddenly come down with the case of baby fever again and I think since we had the fertility issue in common that's why I've been thinking about you. I guess its true that when you turn 30 that biological clock just goes crazy huh LOL. At least its been the case for me. Anyways I just wanted to stop by and say hi and let you know that I've been thinking of you. I hope everything is going GREAT with your two angels at home. =)
