A woman who lost a whopping 303lbs in just 18 months has celebrated her remarkable achievement by sharing a saucy snapshot of her husband holding her in up the air while her legs are wrapped around his waist. Two years ago, Lexi Reed, 26, of Terre Haute, Indiana weighed 485lbs while her husband Danny clocked in at 280lbs. Before they embarked on their weight loss journey together in January 2016, he never would have been able to pick her up with such ease. Lexi, who has amassed more than 450,000 Instagram followers, posted the snapshot of Danny holding her in his arms alongside a picture of them standing together before they slimmed down. The couple’s incredible weight loss story went viral in February, and nearly a year later they are just as fit and in love as before. In her post, Lexi explained that in 2016 they set a New Year’s resolution to lose weight once and for all.
‘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. ‘We wanted to be parents in the future and live a long life together.’ Lexi noted that they had no idea that six months into their resolution they would become 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,’ she wrote. Lexi went on to pay tribute to her husband, explaining that Danny has always loved and supported her no matter what her weight.
