Have you ever wanted to change something about yourself? Have you ever looked in the mirror and saw something about your appearance that you really want to fix? Well, here is an inspiring couple that made a turnaround in their life, a decision to live a healthier, more conscious lifestyle than the one they led. Read about Lexi and Danny’s amazing journey to stay fit and happy.
Lexi Reed had always been struggling with her weight ever since she was a little girl. Even though she faced certain problems with her weight, she did not let that weigh her down and stayed a very outgoing and sociable person. She had tried countless health regimen and exercises to put the weight off but it would eventually creep back. It started to feel like she was just not meant to lose weight.
When Lexi turned 25 years old, she had already weighed around 392 pounds. The amount of weight she had put on was starting to affect her well-being as it was starting to affect her health. Lexi had always been a positive and cheerful person who always saw that best in life, but her weight problem was starting to become a nuisance. It was obstructing her from achieving her life goals.
The Love of Lexi’s Life
Even with her weight problems slowly seeping in, Lexi maintained her outgoing nature and was still a very positive human being. She soon met the love of her life, Danny Reed. Lexi explains the type of bond that she and Danny have, saying that he has been her best friend for 10 years. Danny loved Lexi because of who she is and not just for her physical appearance.
Danny’s Unhealthy Lifestyle
These two were the perfect match for each other and they loved each other dearly. However, there was a huge problem that this couple has. They were both leading a very unhealthy lifestyle. Even Danny did not eat healthily and was also living a life without any cautions about his well being. He was a little too similar to Lexi in that aspect which caused problems for the two.
So the two of them became overweight. Danny was just a few years elder to his darling girlfriend Lexi and was also weighing about 280 pounds. He was in a very bad shape and it was starting to cause problems in his health. The two shared a love for food that was way too indulgent and it was bloating them up, which would eventually cause health risks in the future.
Eating Too Much
Their self-indulgence was a thing these two shared. It was indeed a very unhealthy thing to have in common. Danny and Lexi would often go out and eat at restaurants, eating to their heart’s content. They loved to visit buffets that allow customers to eat all that they can. Even when the two of them stay at home, they would order food online and eat a lot. They were racking up weight like crazy.
A Dangerous Cycle
Lexi has revealed that this unhealthy intake of food had been a part of her life ever since she was young. “Growing up, we never had a lot of money and my parents never cooked. Processed foods were always easier to purchase than healthy foods…” Lexi had admitted to interviewers. She has already been buying unhealthy, canned food since her younger days.
