KAMI spotted this inspiring story on Amomama.com.
Lexi Reed, 26, and her husband Danny, 28, were obese and decided to lose weight for their own good.
Their obesity affected them mentally and physically. They often ended up in embarrassing situations.
Last year, Lexi decided to shape up. She wanted to fulfill her dream of spending time in an amusement park.
“I had long been looking forward to going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster, but when I got to the beginning of the queue, I was told I was too heavy. I couldn't go. It was so incredibly embarrassing,” she recalled.
On their wedding day, Lexi and Danny weighed in at 480 pounds 279 pounds, respectively.
Lexi decided to break her old habits. Danny joined her.
At first it was a struggle doing away with fast food diet, but the couple eventually adapted to their new lifestyle.
Lexi shared their journey on Instagram, dubbing it, “Fat Girl Fed Up.” Lexi has lost almost 240 pounds, while Danny lost 70 pounds.
"Danny and I are still working very hard every day to achieve our goal," Lexi said.
She is on track to fulfilling her roller coaster dream.
"We're not there yet, but, still, I'd never thought that we'd even get this far. It's just incredible. Many small steps can go a long way," Lexi said.
