People Magazine's Half Their Size Special: Sarah And Matt Stockdale Lost 190 Pounds Together

Posted: Updated:

In 2008, Sarah and Matt Stockdale only had to look at some photos of themselves from a New Year's party to know their joint resolution was going to be to lose weight.

"We stopped drinking sodas and started researching the right foods online," Sarah, 28, told People magazine. Since then, she's lost 60 pounds, and her husband, Matt, 27, has shed 130. The high school sweethearts are featured in the magazine's Half Their Size feature.

Losing the weight together was key to their success, they told People, whether it was inspiring additional trips to the gym or staying away from candy bars. "Our goals are always evolving," Matt told the magazine. "But I couldn't have done this without her."
