Ця дивовижна історія почалася 181 кг тому, коли щаслива пара Лексі і Денні Рід проводили весь свій вільний час на дивані, поглинаючи 8 000 ккал кожен.

#throwbackthursday to when I married my #swolemate! @dannyreed5 loved me at 485lbs & never once asked me to change. Ofcourse he wanted me to be healthy, but he never pushed & that's why when I decided to change - we went on this journey together. To live a healthier longer life together & to be able to be parents one day was a great motivator. Wedding dress shopping for a size 34W was one of the worst experiences for me, and even though I was heavy - I still felt beautiful on my wedding day. It was one of the best days of my life & I wouldn't change a single thing. Surround yourself with those who lift you higher & see your soul, not just your looks. ❤ #weightloss #wedding #marriage #plussize #gym #fitchicks #fitcouple #weightloss #weightlossjourney #fit #fitness #effyourbeautystandards #plussize #obesetobeast #fattofit #indiana #goals #diet #love #transform #extremeweightloss #fitfam #weightlosstransformation #selflove #dietbet #husband #life

Незважаючи на те, що вони були далекі від стандартів краси, вони любили один одного і були щасливі. Лексі на той момент важила близько 220 кг, а чоловік Денні 127 кг. 

Проте найбільше молодята мріяли про дитину, цим планам не судилося збутися: через зайву вагу у обох виявилися проблеми зі здоров'ям, які перешкоджали появі дітей.

Саме тоді подружжя Рід вирішили змінити життя заради свого майбутнього. Пара змогла відмовитися від газованих напоїв, алкоголю і фаст-фуду. Повідомляє New York Post.

Але ця історія також доводить, що схуднення не завжди робить жінку красивою і молодою. І за своїм тілом потрібно стежити до незворотніх наслідків. Так 28-річна Лексі Рід, яка за два роки схудла на 140 кілограмів, через різку втрату ваги набула кілограми обвислої шкіри.

#motivationmonday My name is Lexi and I lost 312lbs on my own with diet and exercise. These are the battle wounds I was left with and the freedom of my new reality. I was overweight my entire life and never once in my life have I had a flat stomach. For so long I accepted the reality I never would and knew I just needed to get healthy to save my life despite what my body looked like. Going into losing weight I knew I'd be left with loose skin regardless as it's not something that normally can be avoided, but although I realized the cosmetic aspect of it I didnt realize the physical. Once I lost my weight my skin weighed me down, threw off my posture, effected my workouts, and gave me neck pain to the point that I couldn't function for my daily activities or doing the things I loved. I dont tell you these things to scare you or make you feel sympathy for me because I'd take even more skin any day, but to motivate you to take charge of your life and the future of your own skin as soon as possible. Loose skin can cause just as much pain as not taking care of your health can. Dont wait another moment to change your life. Start today! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whos ready to hustle for the holidays!? NEXT DIETBET STARTS 11/19!!

FIRST RESULTS OF MY NEW 🍑. I AM SO SWOLLEN BUT SO EXCITED FOR MY RESULTS. My surgeon @drjosephmichaels is a magician. This is my new reality & I know this is a different type of transformation. However one thing I was very adamant about was I didnt want to lose my curves, and especially not my booty gains from the thousands of squats I've done since this started. I love my Curves & they are one of my favorite things about my body! I also was concerned about how often lower body lifts flatten the buttocks and speaking with my doctor we had a conversation about preserving my buttock tissue to keep my shape. My surgeon used buttock flaps made from my own tissue and then some fat was also transferred to the lower buttocks to complete the shape. Stomach reveal will be up tomorrow but still in shock that this is my new body! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whos ready to hustle for the holidays!?

Incisions, bruising & swell hell! We are one week post op since my surgery with @drjosephmichaels. This was one of the scariest things not to mention decisions I have ever made in my life. I had to put myself in the position to decide to go forward with surgery and even though I was terrified and I almost talked myself out of it a thousand times - there is no doubt in my mind that this surgery has already changed my life in so many ways that I cant even imagine yet. We can only go up from here! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whos ready to hustle for the holidays!? NEXT DIETBET STARTS 11/19!!

"Починаючи скидати вагу, я знала, що у мене залишиться розтягнута шкіра… Я завжди усвідомлювала косметичний аспект цієї проблеми, але не фізичний. Коли я позбулася своєї ваги, шкіра почала обтяжувати мене, псувати мою поставу, впливати на тренування, викликати біль у шиї до такої міри, що це завадило моїм повсякденним справам…", - зізналася молода дівчина.

I woke up like dis. 😍 Not the most flattering angle, but this is my reality. Normally my loose skin will swell anytime that I have any type of cheat meal or salt so it's no surprise to me that the 'swell hell' @drjosephmichaels warned me of is real, especially in my legs now that it doesn't have as much skin in other places to fill. This has been my set up for the past few days for my naps & sleep. 8 pillows all for me! I have to have multiple pillows under my back, arms, and my legs. For the first few days I couldnt hardly get out of bed and sobbed whenever I sat up but now I can finally pull myself up. In the future I will probably get myself a lift chair if I have more surgery, but doing what I can for now! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whos ready to hustle for the holidays!?

Кілька місяців Рід відчувала сильні болі, не могла сміятися або кашляти. Зараз у дівчини мільйон підписників і вона веде блог про здоровий спосіб життя.

"Я розповідаю вам це не для того, щоб налякати або напроситися на співчуття… Але щоб мотивувати вас змінити своє життя і майбутнє вашої шкіри як можна швидше", - додає вона, закликаючи жінок не запускати себе і займатися фігурою, поки не пізно.

Breakfast is my favorite meal and I told @discoveringdanny everyday I get out of bed to get a breakfast date with him it sets the tone for my mood that day and gets me moving. I'm keeping my meals simple with fruit and hard boiled eggs currently daily instead of the other buffet choices. Even if I'm in pain it makes me feel better to get out of our hotel room and see sunshine. We have to stay in Washington for 10 days as I recover and I'll go see @drjosephmichaels in a few days for my post op appointment. Recovery is a rollercoaster and so far some days are better than others but I know this process and all the pain will be worth it for my new life. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whos ready to hustle for the holidays!?

Лексі і Денні вирішили, що кожен день, проведений на дивані, віддаляє їх від цілі від здоров'я і від мрії. "Піднімись та працюй!"   кажуть вони собі щоранку. 

Зараз Лексі важить 82 кг, а Денні   87. І не збираються зупинятися на досягнутому, щодня мотивуючи один одного домагатися все нових і нових результатів. 

Нагадаємо, 5 зірок розкрили свої таємниці, про рецепти схуднення після пологів.

Як повідомляв портал "Знай.uа", ці 9 найбезглуздіших дієт у світі, на яких сиділи мільйони.
