Couple Decide To Start Losing Weight Together And They’re Unrecognizable After Just 18 Months

Published 2 years ago

When reaching for your goal, no matter what it is, having enough support and encouragement is extremely important. Lexi and Danny Reed, a couple from Terre Haute, Indiana, had each other’s backs when they decided to start losing weight together and now, 24 months and almost 400 lost pounds later, they’re still motivating each other to continue working.

After getting married in October 2015, the couple was challenged to complete a 30-day-long commitment of eating only home-cooked meals with no cheat days, no alcohol or soda, and working out 5 times a week for 30 minutes. “We took the challenge, completed it 100%” Lexi states proudly on her instagram, which now motivates thousands of people to have enough courage to start their own journey toward better health.

After 30 days the couple noticed a positive change in their lifestyle that encouraged them to continue on their journey. Before they started losing weight, Lexi weighed 485lbs while Danny was at 280lbs. After 18 months, with no meal plan, surgery, or personal trainers the couple was down 370lbs, yet they didn’t stop there – they are both carrying on. By now they’re incredibly close to hitting 400lbs of combined lost weight and they feel better than ever.
