Gary isn't the only one of us who has lost weight. Actually, I have lost just about as much as he has. We joke that between us we have lost the equivalent of a person.
Most of Gary's weight loss has been through diet and exercise. Mine came off a little differently as I had two life events in the past year that affected my lifestyle. One was the loss of my Dad. That was an emotional and stressful time and I lost weight because of it. And the other was my shoulder surgery and subsequent recovery. You just don't eat a lot when you are in the kind of pain that accompanies a shoulder surgery and the pain medicine took away my appetite as well. And the physical therapy got me active..
But Gary and I are both eating much more wisely. We eschew the buffets, sweets, and snacks. So just how much did I lose? Well, a woman never tells. But from the pictures below you will get the idea.
