I was just existing, I was a prisoner in my own body.  “I had to save my own life because I didn’t think I was going to live to see 30 and now I’ll be 30 next year.”  Even small amounts of exercise left her gasping for breath.  Lexi, from Terre Haute, Indiana, in the US, explained: “I couldn’t travel on airplanes with my husband. I could barely walk a block without being out of breath or climb stairs. I was afraid to die.  “I suffered from joint pain I suffered with being fatigued all the time.”  Even Lexi’s wedding to Danny was overshadowed by her weight after she says she was judged because of her size while she was shopping for her bridal dress.  She explained: “My wedding day should have been the best day, but people definitely mistreated me at the stores as soon as I walked in.  “They gave me looks just because of my size, almost like I wasn’t worthy of getting married just because I was overweight.”  But it didn’t stop both her and Danny’s unhealthy eating habits.   He said: “I think, between me and Lexi we just overindulged on food. We would order a large stuffed crust pizza, breadsticks, wings, Mountain Dew and just binge watch Netflix and just overeat.”  Lexi admits she had an unhealthy relationship with food.  She said: “I was an emotional eater, so if I was sad I ate. If I was happy, I ate. If there were celebrations, I ate.  “My favourite food was always pizza and tons of plates at the Chinese buffet. I would say I probably ate over 6000 calories a day.”  But then on January 1, 2016, Lexi decided enough was enough and vowed to change her ways.  She said: “After all those moments added up, I was just fed up. And then I set a new year’s resolution on January 1st 2016. And that’s when it all changed.”  She joined a gym, working out six days a week, and overhauled her eating habits.  She said: “I just had people at my job see me transform and tell me I should join. But then when I started posting I started getting comments like, ‘hey, Lexi you’re really helping me’.  “And then I was like, ‘OK well, if I don’t go to the gym, then I can’t post and then I can’
