Lexi Reed, also known under the pseudonym of Fat Girl Fed Up, from Terre Haute, Indiana, weighed 485lbs back in 2016 while her husband Danny tipped the scales at 280lbs. Together they decided to get into shape, and just eighteen months later the pair has lost almost 400lbs (almost 180kg) together! “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 on Instagram. “We wanted to be parents in the future and live a long life together.”
