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. 

This is your Sunday evening reminder that you can handle whatever this week throws at you. This is your Sunday evening reminder that no matter what happened this weekend, or in the past, - tomorrow is a new day. Never give up and always keep pushing. If I gave up on myself at 485lbs last year and didn't try new things such as side planks, I wouldn't be where I am today. We are all stronger than we know, and capable of more than we could imagine. ❤ #plank #plussize #fattofit #obesetobeast #weightloss #weightlossjourney #progress #losingweight #extremeweightloss #weightlosstransformation #fitnessmotivation #fitfam #gym #anytimefitness #goals #strong #dietbet #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #effyourbeautystandards #life #diet #health #losingweight #beforeandafter #transformation #countingcalories #lowcarb #muscles #exercise #workout #fitspo

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.

#facetofacefriday -392lbs 👇 since @discoveringdanny & I set a New Years Resolution 1/1/16. This picture from the night before we started our journey speaks to me. We had no idea exactly how we were going to lose the weight or if we would make it - but we were determined to try. We knew that together anything was possible. We weighed a combined total of 765lbs and we fedup with the life we were living. Together we started meal prepping, drinking water instead of soda, quit watching television and started moving more, going to the gym just 30 minutes five times a week, focusing on our future every day, setting goals - and day by day the weight took care of its self. Dont wait for New Years like we did - START TODAY! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit #fattofit #obesetobeast #beastmode #fitspo #diet #swolemate #resolution #couplegoals #relationshipgoals #beforeandafter #extremeweightloss #weightlosstransformation #gym #fitcouple #faceprogress #transformation #fitfam #health #diet #losingweight #gymlife #goals #transform

And WOW what a difference!

#swolematesunday -394👇lbs since 1/1/16! This man has stuck by my side through thick & thin. @discoveringdanny has loved me no matter my size and never asked me to change. He treats me the same way at 179lbs that he treated me at 485lbs. When we got married we made vows to low eachother for better for worse through sickness and in health until death do us part. ❤ We meant those words and we are so happy for this new life we are living. Don't wait until the New Year to change like we did - start today! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit #gym #workout #fitfam #fitspo #fitnesssmotivation #goals #healthylifestyle #diet #fitness #love #couplegoals #relationshipgoals #diet #motivation #fitnessmotivation #fattofit #fedupfam #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #dietbet #losingweight #transformation

#throwbackthursday to 485lbs & @discoveringdanny proposing to me at sunset on Clearwater Beach. He never saw me as my size, asked me to change, or made me feel as anything other than beautiful. He treated me the same way at 485lbs that he does at 182lbs. Love doesn't have a size or weight limit. He saw the person I was on the inside and supported me while I made that person on the side match my outside. Surround yourself with those who lift you higher and see the greatness in you even when you dont see it yourself! ❤ #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fatgirlfedupdietbet #love #florida #clearwaterbeach #sunset #fitspire #fitcouple #relationshipgoals #couplegoals #fattofit #obesetobeast #beastmode #fitfam #fitspo #inspire #motivation #fitnessmotivation #gym #wedding #engagement #transform #fitspo #diet #extremeweightloss #transformation

#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. Start today! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- LAST DIETBET OF 2017 STARTS IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS! Fedup & ready to change? Time to finish 2017 strong!

#facetofacefriday -303lbs 👇 naturally since last year with diet/exercise. Picture on the left was taken during my bachelorette party. I wanted to be like most girls & wear a cute sash. Sadly due to my size it didnt fit so I had to embarrassingly safety pin it on. I played it off as if I didn't mind, but it was just another reason that added to my pile of reasons to lose weight. I was fedup. My weight held me back from so many things. At 485lbs I wasnt living the life I wanted- I was just existing. At 485lbs I was a prisoner in my own body and now I am free. Dont wait another second to break out of your prison - start today! #weighttraining #weightlossjourney #fattofit #obesetobeast #fedup #fatgirlfedup #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #dietbet #wedding #bacheloretteparty #plussizefashion #plussize #effyourbeautystandards #beforeandafter #transform #extremeweightloss #diet #losingweight #gymlife #gym #fitfam #fit #goals #fitness #countingcalories #indiana #fitspo #motivation

#facetofacefriday 👇 300lbs with diet/exercise since last year. Weight loss has changed alot of things, but my favorite thing is no longer feeling like i'm a prisoner in my own body. Last year at 485lbs so many things weren't possible and my life was restricted daily. My size effected every aspect of my life from going out to eat with my friends due to the booths, driving due to the steering wheel touching my stomach, difficulty bending to tie my own shoes, walking any distance, climbing stairs, and so many more things. I spent 25 years being a prisoner in my own body constantly fatigued/lazy - that I refuse to waste anther single day not living my life to the fullest or feeling alive. Life is short and we only get one. Don't waste another day being a prisoner in your own body - start today! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit #fitfam #fitspo #health #diet #weightlosstransformation #fattofit #obesetobeast #extremeweightloss #gym #squat #workout #foodie #exercise #progress #anytimefitness #fatgirlfedup #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #dietbet #motivation #fitness #fit #goals #transformation #gymlife
