A Dangerous Cycle
Lexi has revealed that this unhealthy intake of food had been a part of her life ever since she was young. “Growing up, we never had a lot of money and my parents never cooked. Processed foods were always easier to purchase than healthy foods…” Lexi had admitted to interviewers. She has already been buying unhealthy, canned food since her younger days.
Binging On Tv And Food
She did not stop this routine even after she met her boyfriend Danny. Lexi has admitted that she would watch the television and eat to her heart’s content while doing it. She loved to watch her favorite shows while enjoying her favorite snacks. “I was always an emotional eater, also, and no matter what the mood, food was always there for me,” Lexi further stated.
So after getting overweight, Lexi and Danny realized that they were unable to do some things that a normal person could. The obese couple became well aware that they were not able to take romantic walks in the park or the beach, they could not go biking, or even hiking in the woods. The only thing that this couple could do was to sit at home and watch TV.
Time To Change
Lexi was starting to get the hint that she was not living a healthy life and that her weight was restricting her from doing a lot of stuff. Even though she still kept a positive view of things, she could not ignore the fact that it was time for her to make a few changes in her life. There was one little problem. She did not know the means and ways to do that nor she had the motivation to do so.
Lexi needed something drastic to happen to her in order for her to lose weight. When Danny finally proposed to her, she knew a change was needed. “He never saw me as my size, asked me to change, or made me feel as anything other than beautiful,” Lexi posted on her Instagram. Since she was now a whopping 485 pounds, finding the perfect wedding dress for her would be near impossible.
Lexi even updated her social media and posted about how it was not a fun thing to be shopping around for wedding gowns for a woman who weighs 485 pounds. “Nobody knew how to make me feel like a bride and not my size. Thank god I was strong enough to know my worth and kept searching for my 34W dress even though I questioned if I would ever find one,” she exclaimed.
