A woman who lost 137 kilos with the help of her husband has celebrated the achievement by sharing a staggering comparison photo of them both.
Lexi Reed, 27, weighed 220 kilos before she and husband, Danny, made a new year’s resolution to lose weight in 2016.
‘We didnt 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,’ Lexi – who has amassed a fanbase of 460,000 followers on Instagram – shared in a post.
‘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.’
Alongside her post, Lexi shared a before and after comparison photo.
In one she and Danny stand facing each other in the gym – before their incredible transformation.
In the other, Danny is pictured scooping up his bride in his arms – after she lost more than half her body weight.
‘We may have lost the weight but we have grown closer together,’ Lexi shared on her post, paying tribute to her husband.
‘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!’
