You know the mind is one of the most powerful things that a human can ever have. It controls your thinking, your moods, your whole body 24/7 whole year round until the day we die. That is pretty impressive! 

The thing is we sometimes think that doing something is to difficult so we quit, but in fact, if you just thought differently for a second your whole mindset would change in an instant and that thing you thought was difficult, merely becomes extremely easy. That is what happens when people want to lose weight. They think about all the work that needs to go into it and they just give up before they started and they end up being unhappy with themselves.

This is what happened to Lexi Reed from Indiana before she and her husband decided to take on the weight loss journey together. In 2016 they made the choice to lose weight when she was 485 lbs and her husband Danny was 280 lbs.

It took them 18 months to lose almost 400 lbs between the two of them! So Lexi decided to set up an Instagram account so that people can follow her journey and it is truly inspiring.
