It’s been a long road, but in the last year and a half your gringas have lost — we shit you not — almost 140 pounds. And Kelly has lost over 100 of that on her own.


Both Kari and Kelly are loving this new healthier version of themselves and are proud of everything that they’ve accomplished, however, as they reflect back on the process it’s definitely a little bittersweet.

The ladies discuss the traumatic life events that lead to the weight gain, struggling with body dysmorphia, the moment when Kelly knew things had gone too far, and all of the ways in which losing the equivalent of a chubby 5th grader can actually be a giant mindfuck. (Spoiler alert: they cry again.)

Kari and Kelly also talk about what life looks like now, and what they are doing to maintain their new healthier outlook. Losing weight and keeping it off is definitely not a diet — it’s a lifestyle change — and for your gringas it still feels like a constant science experiment to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
