Misty Shaffer sure knows how to surprise a guy.
When her husband Larry Shaffer went to Afghanistan, she weighed about 260 pounds. Imagine Larry’s surprise when he saw her after a year of deployment, at less than 155 pounds.
This is a glimpse at her journey:
Amazing isn’t it?
Needless to say, he was shocked, surprised and limited to the word ‘wow.’
Misty had struggled with her weight all her life, and though her husband never complained about it, Misty said she decided to lose weight because she wanted to surprise her husband and to have a better life.
So when Larry, an Army specialist, was deployed to Afghanistan for a year she decided this was the perfect time to get in shape.
“I just sat in bed one night and was like, ‘I can do this,’” she told CNN. “‘I need to do this.’”
And she did.
