Deployments aren’t usually something to look forward to, from a Military Spouse’s perspective. But, Misty Schaeffer made the most of the time away from her husband of 5 years during his year-long deployment to Afghanistan. Misty lost 100 pounds during that time by eating healthy and controlling her portions, took care of their 3-year-old daughter, and moved into a new home; all while her 27-year-old Army Specialist husband was away. When Larry Schaeffer was re-united with his wife, he barely recognized her.  You can tell by the look on his face in the video that he loves his wife no matter her size, but was proud of her determination, proactive outlook and independence while he was away.   What projects have you completed during your spouse’s deployment?
