After 11 years of being together, I'm still amazed by the things my wife has accomplished. When I first met her, she was a young, unhappy, insecure, 220 lb woman still working temp jobs and trying to find a solid career.

The weight has been something she's battled with practically all of her life. But after Ben was born she vowed to lose all that weight and become an example of health and well being, and most importantly, to prove to herself that she could do it.

That was almost 10 years ago. About a year after that, she lost almost 90 lbs and, for the exception of being pregnant with Liam, has been able to keep it off. How did she do it? The old fashion way: through shear willpower, diet, and exercise.

Now she's a confident, secure woman with a clear career path. But that perseverance, that determination is why I love her so much.
