Way to go, Todd Gibel! Christy McGinity Gibel's husband's weight has been a topic of conversation for quite some time among the Little Women: LA stars — but Christy just shared an exciting weight loss update about her man exclusively with In Touch.
"He recently turned 50, he's very excited and proud that he weighed less on his 50th birthday than on his 20th birthday — which is really exciting," the reality star said via phone last week. "He's doing good! He's more energetic, happier — life is good." Todd underwent gastric bypass surgery over the summer and altered his diet, which helped him on his journey.
And that's not all — Christy, who underwent spinal surgery in November 2016 — also revealed that she will also be on a weight loss journey this season. "I'm also struggling with my weight and I'm finally doing something about it. You can look forward to a big operation that I'm gonna go through." We wish them all the best!
We learned in December that Christy filed a lawsuit against an MD who performed her previous surgery — as she shared he "almost killed her" during the operation. "He hit my carotid artery. He nicked it during surgery, and that's all I can say. My health is better, it's not like it was, but it's better. My voice is almost 100 percent back, but I still can't sing, which makes me sad."
On a lighter note, the couple — who wed in 2014 — are in a much better place since attending THAT cast Couples Retreat. "Everything is good," she gushed. "There are always ups and downs but we strive to do our best." It sounds like there's a lot to look forward to this season!
