Brandi Middleton - Top 15

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
I wish I had learned to appreciate my body earlier in life, specifically learning healthy eating habits when I was younger would have taught me to appreciate healthy food. Learning good nutritional habits at a younger age would have changed the course of my life. I suffered with three different types of eating disorders for 25 years that led me to have a love/hate relationship with food. In the past two years, I have started taking better care of myself and my body by eating healthier for my own well-being.


What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
Since becoming a Mom six years ago; I worry every day for my child. I wish the world was a safer place like it was when my generation was growing up. My biggest concerns are school safety, the suicide rate in adolescence and what the future holds for this next generation. As a Mom, it is in our nature to love, protect and want the best for our children's future.


What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
Everything! I love to travel! It is so fun to see different scenery and try new food. Every state I travel to, I love going to different stores and restaurants that are unique to the area I am visiting; looking for unique items that I can bring back as gifts and keepsakes. It has become a tradition! My absolute favorite place to travel is to the Bahamas on a Disney Cruise. Put me on a ship with Minnie Mouse and I could live there forever! Traveling is so much fun!


What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
I am at a place in my life where I know who I am. I have found my identity and I don't have to rely on outside approval to make me happy. I am so confident and comfortable in who I am. It has taken me so many years to find my strength, but so grateful for the obstacles I have overcame, because they shaped me into the person I am today!
