Here's What Happened During Jaclyn & Stephen's Altar'd Journey:
Stephen described himself as always a hefty child, and Jaclyn had gained a lot of weight during her pregnancy — she started her Altar'd journey currently seven pounds heavier than that. The two wanted to start on a healthier journey to gain more energy and have better lives.
While seperated, the couple tried a bunch of different types of exercises, from Stephen's intense CrossFit workout with trainer and host Chris Marhefka, to Jaclyn's transformational experience making it halfway up a climbing wall (that's her at right) and in a boxing ring with trainer and host Erin Stutland.
Jaclyn's wellness journey was extra-tough particularly because of a night when she cheated on her diet, going out for multiple cocktails with friends, and then binging on pizza and brownies...a night of eating that sent her up a whopping four pounds. But it only made her recommit to losing weight before her wedding.

The couple tied the knot — check out a few behind-the-scenes wedding and honeymoon pics in our slideshow above — then vacationed in Ireland together. Best of luck to you both!
In the show, engaged couples are challenged to shape up 90 days before their wedding day — with the added twist of doing it separately, then revealing their transformations when they meet up again at the altar! For 90 days, each bride- and groom-to-be is asked to workout for an hour daily and eat only meals from the diet delivery service Diet-to-Go. They'll have access to gyms, trainers, and the support of co-hosts Erin Stutland and Chris Marhefka, but the real commitment to change their bodies and lives — as well as the struggle, willpower and emotion along with it — comes from within. Check out more about the show here.
