Danny and Lexi Reed are a perfect example of perseverance and determination. Following a radical lifestyle change, this couple lost a total of 22 stone in just one year.
Initially, Danny and Lexi weighed 20 stone and 34 stone respectively. This excess weight had disastrous consequences on their health and in January 2016, Lexi decided it was time to change!
An Instagram account
Lexi set out to create an Instagram account to track their lifestyle change. She posted the first picture of her and her husband and explained the difficulties she has experienced so far. She expressed her insecurities and opened up about their relationship with food:
That's what our relationship was like. Most of the time, we would go to a Chinese buffet and eat three-four plates before going home and ordering takeout. My size controlled my life and it also affected my health. I had difficulty breathing and I'm almost sure I'm pre-diabetic. People don't understand how difficult being overweight is. Once, I was refused a ride at a theme park because I was too big to ride on a roller coaster. It was humiliating.
A radical lifestyle change
The couple was motivated to start eating healthierand exercise. Lexi shares her daily life and her results on Instagram. Their efforts quickly paid off and thefirst pounds fell off. Now, even though the couple isn't done fighting the weight, they have already gained a better quality of life and continue to inspire many others.
