Couple Made Losing Weight Their New Year's Resolution, And The Results Are Impressive

Couple Made Losing Weight Their New Year's Resolution, And The Results Are Impressive

Most of us are absolutely atrocious at keeping out New Year's resolutions - if we make any at all. Truth be told, New Year's Eve isn't particularly notorious for inspiring us to bring out our very best. 

It's usually either this: 

Or (probably more accurately) it looks like this: 

Whether your night is awesome or awful, most of us tend not to actually change a thing come the next morning. Most of us aren't Lexi and Danny Reed. The couple made a New Year's resolution in 2016 to get healthier. 

This is what the pair looked like when they started their transformation:

#waybackwednesday to the most awkward photoshoot of my life with my swolemate @dannyreed5. I'm a lucky girl he loved me no matter what size & never asked me to change. We received a free engagement shoot & shyly agreed to do it. When we arrived the other couple was the complete opposite of us - perfect model couple & not plus size. I had bought the cutest dress from my favorite plus store, did my hair & makeup, bought a coverup to hide my arms, & had never done a photoshoot before due to my size. I felt gorgeous even at 485lbs, but I was hurt when I could tell it was easier for the photographers to photograph the other couple rather than a plus size couple. Never stop believing in yourself, you are capable of so much more than you know. ❤ You are worthy of people that love you, and think the world of you - no matter what size. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedup or have too much fun this summer & want to lose weight with me?

The pair committed to getting healthy and losing weight with no surgery, no prepared meal plan,  and no professional personal trainers. They wanted to depend on just one another, and some hard work. 

The weight fell off slowly but surely. 

#throwbackthursday -303lbs 👇 naturally since 1/1/16 with diet/exercise. No meal plan, surgery, pills, or personal trainer, but focusing on each day 1lb at a time, counting calories, and blood, sweat, tears in the gym. Nothing about this journey has been easy, but every step has been worth it. I'm proud of every single girl in the photos above because she took the steps to get where she needed to be. Every single photo shows a girl making progress even if it was the progress of being a beginner & stepping in the gym. We all start somewhere, but the most important thing is to just start & never give up.

And WOW what a difference!

#transformationtuesday -392👇 since @dannyreed5 & I set a New Years Resolution together 1/1/16. We didnt have a meal plan, surgery, personal trainer, but what we did have was each other & the motivation within to work hard every single day. We wanted to be parents in the future and live a longer life together. We had no idea that in just over a year 6 months we would be a completely different couple. We may have lost the weight but we have grown closer together. Pound by pound, step by step, day by day - we have transformed our lives and molded our bodies into the people we've always wanted to be. This man has been by my side for the last 10 years and treated me no different at 485lbs than he does at 182lbs. We all deserve to live a life we are in love with and have people around that make it worth living. We hope others will hear our story & decide not to give up! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dietbet just started but you can join for 14 days after!

Lexi has dropped over 300 lbs: 

#facetofacefriday - 303lbs 👇 naturally with diet/exercise since last year. At 25 years old, a BMI of 78, & 485lbs I knew if I didnt take control of my life I would die at a young age. Being afraid to die was something that motivated me every single day. I had so many things in my life I still wanted to do. This picture brings tears to my own eyes because its shows how hard I fought to get here. It shows the direction my life was going. Some days there's nothing that I can really say other than - THANK GOD I CHOSE TO FIGHT FOR MY LIFE. I know what its like to question what else is out there in life and if you will spend the rest of your life as a prisoner in your own body. I'm living proof that anyone can change their life and all the blood, sweat, & tears will be worth it.
