Woman Who Used To Weigh Almost 500 lbs Recreates Her Old Photos, And It’s Hard To Believe It’s The Same Person

Fat loss has long been a goal of most people. Unless you’re a professional bodybuilder at the upper echelon of the ‘sport’ then most people could do with losing some body fat and gaining some muscle. And that is precisely what this couple did. Lexi Reed and her husband, Danny, were both overweight, but after a year and a half the incredible couple was able to go through a massive weight loss and they documented their journey on Instagram!

Since then, Lexi has started her own Instagram account and has amassed thousands of followers who were inspired by her journey.

And now, with hindsight, she can look back at her old photos and attempt to recreate them with her brand new body.


Lexi is from Terre Haute, Indiana, and at her heaviest in 2016 she weighed 485 pounds! Her husband, Danny, tipped the scales at over 280 pounds.

More than 18 months later, the incredible couple was able to lose a combined 400 pounds!

On her Instagram, which has amassed more than half a million followers since her weight loss journey, she wrote: ‘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 continued: ‘we wanted to be parents in the future and live a long life together.’
