POOR EATING HABITS

In an interview with PEOPLE, Tricia, 37, revealed that they used to eat a lot. She said:

“We have this drive-thru restaurant that’s open 24 hours. So we’d get this really large burrito that they made with pork, beef, chicken, shrimp, potatoes, and it’s really big, and then we’d each have a cheese quesadilla, and churros. It was crazy.”

The pair would also frequently order pizza and other low-quality nourishment such as junk foods. Tricia added:

“We’d get two large pizzas, two orders of the bread, hot wings, the dessert—two different kinds of dessert because you can’t just choose one—and then soda, of course. We would consume four cases of soda a week at home, and more while out.”

THE WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY

In 2017, Tricia and Nick, who once called themselves “couch potatoes,” won a raffle to join Jenny Craig for a year and began to get in shape. 

They got arranged meals consistently and were able to include fruits and vegetables as required into the plan.

Tricia loved how easy the plan was to follow, saying:

“All the work’s done for you, so all I had to do was follow the menu, which was great because I’m really good at having a plan and focusing on it. I did not deviate at all from the menu. I had tunnel vision. I was seeing my chart go down, and I could see it in photos."

Tricia and Nick would bring their own food during occasions. Other than eating, the couple started strolling as a type of activity. 

THEIR HARD WORK DEFINITELY PAID OFF

When the year was finally over, Tricia had shed 149 pounds while Nick dropped 87 pounds. Now they're both ready to hike and run rather than simply walking.

“I never really thought of myself as being overweight or big like that until seeing the pictures now. Side-by-side with where I was and where I am, it is still kind of shocking," Nick, 36, told PEOPLE.

Tricia, who felt the same way, said that she's glad for herself, adding that her favorite thing regarding their weight loss journey was that she and her husband did it together.

She continued that the journey has brought them closer as a couple, showing them that together they can do anything.
