weight loss before after-MistyShafferFamilyMisty Shaffer of North Carolina has been struggling with her weight all of her life.

Misty and her husband Larry — an Army specialist — were married five and a half years ago (Oct 2008) and stated dating in high school.  In all that time, Larry has never said a word about Misty’s weight.  In fact, he had never even seen Misty — who is a petite 5.5 feet tall — weigh less than 200 pounds!  (Close your eyes and think about that for a moment.)

In 2012, Larry was deployed to Afghanistan, and Misty decided she wanted to get into shape.  It wasn’t easy and she had relapses, but by the time Larry returned in the spring of 2013, Misty had reduced from size 22-24 to size 6 — and she has stayed thin since them.

“There’s no way that’s my wife that I left a year ago,” he thought when he first saw her, and recounted later for CNN.
