#motivationmonday -394lbs 👇 combined since we set a New Years Resolution 1/1/2016. We were fedup with spending or nights sitting on the couch binge watching Netflix and mindlessly eating. Our bestfriend challenged us to the first 30 days of no eating out, no cheat meals, no alcohol or soda, and working out for 30 minutes five times a week. We took the challenge, completed it 100%, and that first month of our journey our lives changed. We realized it wasn't a diet, but a lifestyle change. We focused on small changes and they added up to big results. We focused on each day instead of how far we had to go. Instead of eating out like we did daily we meal prepped, learned daily about nutrition labels/cooking, ans we also took the foods we loved and made healthy versions. This helped us not feel deprived and control temptations. We also fell in love with taking care of ourselves and our new life together. This journey helped bring us closer together and stronger than ever. Dont wait for the New Year to change like we did - start today! #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit #fitfam #fitness #dietbet #fattofit #gym #obesetobeast #fattofit #swolemate #couplegoals #relationshipgoals #fitnessmotivation #fitlove #fitcouple #plussize #effyourbeautystandards #health #diet #losingweight #extremeweightloss #transformation #weightlosstransformation #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #goals #motivation
I LOVE stories like this!
One year ago, 27-year-old Lexi Reed of Terre Haute, Indiana, weighed 485 pounds. Her 29-year-old husband, Danny, weighed 280 pounds. They both were concerned about their physical condition and made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight and reclaim their health.
Lexi and Danny then proceeded to spend the last 12 months eating right and exercising -- and together they lost more than 400 pounds.
Lexi now weighs 179 pounds and Danny weighs 191. They are both excited about their improved health and also the way their lives have improved. They’re doing things like canoeing, biking and traveling -- things that just weren’t possible for them before.
And, as an added bonus, their shared mission to get physically healthy together has brought them even closer together personally and emotionally.
Congratulations to these two on committing to taking care of their bodies. It's HARD work, but so worth it! Click on Lexi's Instagram pic to see her full profile with tons of progress pictures and a look into her healthy journey. SO AWESOME.
Hopefully this has inspired you as much as it has me! Happy New Year!
