At the time, Lexi weighed 485 pounds (around 34 stone) and, Danny weighed 281 pounds (around 20 stone). They say they would eat out all the time, filling up on fast food, crisps and fizzy drinks. The even said they’d get as many as eight plates at their local Chinese buffet.
But in just one year, Danny lost 62 pounds (around 4 stone) and Lexi lost an incredible 236 pounds (around 16 stone!).
So how did they do it?
A friend challenged them to go one month without, drinking alcohol, going out to eat or having a cheat meal.
Eventually, the changes stuck, and they switched to a healthier diet, incorporating vegetables, lean protein, and healthy carbs.
Of course, they also started going to the gym. And instead of being overwhelmed by complicated exercise programmes, they just stuck to what they could do. Lexi says she concentrating on doing half an hour of cardio four times a week, and took it from there.
