My Husband: The Biggest Loser

For the record, I found him irresistible both ways. Congratulations, dear.

Total weight lost during contest: 43.5 lbs. From heaviest weight: 50 lbs.

Method: Eat less. Exercise more.

Actually, he did use a handy little calorie counter on his iPod that nearly drove me BATTY. "Oh, this looks delicious dear. Can I see the recipe before I eat anything?"

PS. NOT April Fooling.

That is awesome that he was able to drop all that weight so quickly. I am very impressed!

PS. We need to hear about this new dream job that he got now.

Over 40 pounds? That's great...just stinkin' great...for the last month I have faithfully been on the treadmill every day, except for 3 days when I was near death...and I watched every morsel I put in my mouth and I lost a total of 4 1/2 pounds. FOUR AND A HALF!!! I'm practically killing myself for the weight of one good burrito! It's just not fair. Let me ask you this...with a 40 lb. weight loss Alex must have more energy...how's that workin' for you? If my husband lost 40 lbs. I'd probably lose weight just from running away from him - if you get my drift...xo, Nan

Is he growing his hair longer or did the head shrink, too, so it makes the hair look longer?

Or does weight loss make him go Hollywood: longer hair with a slightly less well-groomed thing going on?

Just wondering.
