Army Wife Loses 100 Pounds During Husband's Deployment

She surprised him with the big weight loss when he returned from overseas

Here's the kind of surprise we can totally get behind. Army specialist Larry Schaffer was deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. He spent more than a year living overseas and communicated with his wife and young daughter through emails and phonecalls.

While he was away, his wife Misty decided that she wanted to do something major to change her life. Always overweight, Misty embarked on a healthy living plan to get rid of her excess pounds. "I would eat when I was bored," she admitted. "I'd eat three huge meals a day, and then snack in between. Sad or happy, I'd turn to food for everything."

In order to get her weight under control, she cut out her snacking, and got serious about portion control. In the first month she lost 15 pounds, and that spurred her to continue on with her plan. Over the next 11 months, Misty continued to lose weight and exercise and she slimmed down from a size 24 to a size 6.

But she never said a thing to her husband about her drastic weight loss. So when she met her at the airport he was beyond shocked. It's definitely worth watching. [CNN]
