North CarolinaAn Army wife who lost more than 150 pounds in weight while her husband was away in Afghanistan gave him a huge surprise upon his return. Misty Shaffer, who once weighed more than 300 pounds, hadn’t seen husband for over a year. She managed to keep her slimming a secret surprise from her husband, Larry, until he arrived back at his hometown airport in Wilmington, North Carolina… The first glimpse Larry Shaffer had of his slimmer spouse was as he turned the corner and walked out of baggage claim at Wilmington, North Carolina airport. At first, it appeared Shaffer didn’t appear to recognise his new-look wife.

To be perfectly honest, I’m not seeing where Misty lost the 150 pounds.  Like I watched that video three times and if they didn’t tell us what picture was what, I wouldn’t have known “Before” from “After.”  But I’m not going to turd in the punchbowl.  Instead I’ll just take Misty at her word that she dropped the weight and say that there’s now something she has in common with husband: She is also an American hero.  Let Misty Shaffer’s example be an inspiration to all you military wives.  Your men are going out to the most godforsaken hellholes on Earth to keep our sorry asses safe from the worst people on the planet, and we all owe it to them to do our part.  Your part is to look as hot as possible and when they get home safe, to bang them until all the fluid is gone from their bodies.  Be supportive, stay loyal, do a good job raising their kids while they’re away.  But first and foremost, hit the gym.  Push yourself away from the table.  Swallow the diet pills like they’re Pez if you have to.  But follow Misty Shaffer’s example and be a sexy machine for your husband.  That’s how a wife… and by extension, a nation… honors the brave men who proudly serve.  Godspeed, Misty.  If Obama doesn’t pin a medal on her for this he’s no longer my Commander-in-Chief.  @JerryThornton1
