Many people make New Year’s resolutions, and many people break them, but as you can see from these incredible pictures (https://www.instagram.com/fatgirlfedup/), some people don’t just stick to them. They smash them!
Lexi Reed from Terre Haute, Indiana, weighed 485lbs back in 2016 while her husband Danny tipped the scales at 280lbs. Together they decided to get into shape and just eighteen months later the pair have lost almost 400lbs (28 stone) together!
“We didn’t have a meal plan, surgery, personal trainer, but what we did have was each other and the motivation within to work hard every single day,’ she wrote on Instagram. “We wanted to be parents in the future and live a longer life together.”
The couple, who wed in 2015, used to eat a total of around 8000 calories per day, but after giving up junk food in favour of home-cooked meals and starting to hit the gym five to six times per week, Lexi and Danny shed around half of their body weight in just 12 months. During their amazing weight-loss journey, Lexi has amassed almost 500k followers on Instagram (@fatgirlfedup), many of whom have been inspired by her hard work and determination. Scroll down to see the results of her incredible perseverance, and remember, New Year’s Eve is just around the corner…
