Inspiring People Who Lost Weight and Healed their Lives
And now, on to those inspiring people we can celebrate with and perhaps emulate. They vary in age, location, and situation, but in many ways, their goal is the same: lose that weight!
An Indiana Couple, Lexi and Danny
What greater challenge can you overcome as a married couple than transforming your entire lifestyle and losing a collective 400 pounds?
But against all odds, this Indiana couple did it. Reevaluating their health, taking a hard look at how they used food as therapy, learning to meal plan and cook together, and pushing each other to hit the gym consistently – all were keys to their success.
“The hardest part of our journey was changing our relationship with food,” shares Lexi. But now, the gym is both therapy and quality time well spent for the now fit husband and wife.

A Will to Walk Again
From a disabled veteran 100 pounds overweight who was told he would not walk unassisted again, to . . . well, you will simply have to watch and find out. Many of us do not have nearly this far to go on our journey toward health, and it is inspiring to see someone like Arthur achieve so much. A beautiful video filled with hope.
What do These Inspiring People Have in Common?
In looking at all these healthy achievers, I discovered some commonalities:
- Taking their “bad days” in stride. Not allowing a setback or even a seeming failure to give them the excuse to call it quits on their goals. Getting right back in the saddle!
- Persistence in routine, whether with diet or exercise. Waking up every day and deciding, “I will continue to make healthy choices.”
- Replacing junk foods with healthier alternatives. Seeking to substitute rather than deprive oneself.
- Relying on relationships and the accountability of being real with others about your goals and dreams.
- Developing healthy habits that become natural – rather than relying on will power alone.
