Tomorrow will mark 10 years married to the most wonderful man I know. He was my high school sweetheart. He was the one I "grew up" with. He was the man who stood by my side through 9 years of infertility. And subsequently, he is the the father of our son.

He is also the man who watched me get bigger, while I watched him do the same. Over the years, we gained a lot of weight together. Eating out, eating anything we wanted, making excuses together. Being very inactive. Well, this all changed about 2 years ago. Starting with him.

In the past 2 years, my husband has lost around 100 pounds

In the past 1+ year, I have lost 75 pounds

I look back on the years we've spent together, and I'm filled with mixed emotions. The damage we did to ourselves through years of unhealthy living, which in turn led to stress, depression, lack of intimacy, caused a strain on our marriage. BUT, we have been able to mend much of this through our journey over these past 2 years. Getting healthy has given our marriage the new life it needed.

To celebrate our new life, we are doing an Olympic duathlon in September... he is a cyclist and I am a runner drinker

You are truly blessed. How wonderful that you have been able to support each other. For many of us, our other half isn't quite as committed to a healthy lifestyle and it makes the journey that much tougher. You guys look great! Congrats!
