On New Year's Eve, 2016, Lexi Reed made a bet with her friend: to slim down. Her weight was 485 pounds and the weight of her husband Danny was 281 pounds at that time.

"The main reason of our slimming was our health. We dreamed of having a happy family with kids in our future and we knew that it would be impossible if we did not get our lives under control," she says.

One year has passed and Lexi has achieved her goal. She has lost almost 237 pounds while her husband shed 62 pounds. They trained a lot together, cooked healthy food together and walked miles together what made their love stronger.

Lexi shares their weight loss story on her Instagram page and it now has over 60,000 followers. Many of her followers were inspired by this young happy couple to start a new active life.
