1. Allan has lost 28 pounds since the first of January. His brother called us up and was starting a biggest loser competition. Everyone put in $100 and any one who lost 10% of their body weight got half back. There were also 4 weigh-ins and the winner of each got $50. Well anyway, after a lot of hard work (including being pretty careful on a 12 day Disney vacation) He lost almost 14% of his body weight and won one of the weigh-ins! Unfortunately this was all only enough to get him 5th place overall, but I am so proud of him and also so grateful that he is healthier.
2. Allan has a good job. He is working for Indian Health Services at a reservation about 45min. from our house. There are the pro's and con's about his job but right now, in an unsteady economy, it is a steady income with great benefits including health care, paid time off, retirement savings, and hopefully loan repayment kicking in soon.
3. Allan is a wonderful husband and father. He works hard to provide for our family. He is always willing to help me with the kids and put my needs first. He is my best friend and I love him so much.
