Before And After Pictures Of A Couple Who Lost 280 Pounds Together. You Won’t Believe The Difference!

Here’s a story that will motivate you to get off the coach and put down that bag of chips.

A Colorado couple, Robert and Jessica Foster, who both were battling obesity finally had enough and decided to do something about it. It all started with Jessica, she was turning 30 in March of 2012. She signed up for Zumba classes and lost 14 pounds in two weeks, then she got on to treadmills and bikes at the gym. The weight continued to come off.

In 2011, Robert weighed 327 pounds and Jessica weighed 287.

Robert was slower to make changes. He didn’t like the idea of running, so he started playing tennis, and stopped getting second helpings at dinner. They added other physical activities like hiking and swimming with their children.

“I adore my kids and I love my husband very much, but there was that point I hated myself so much. I wasn’t giving them the full me because I was disgusted,” Jessica told Fox’s KDVR. “You have to look in the mirror and say, ‘Am I going to allow this to continue or am I going to stand up and make those changes?’ A light turned on upstairs.”

Robert and Jessica participated in their first 5K race in December. Robert walked as much as he ran, and Jessica finished way ahead of him.

“The race environment and the high fives and the feeling of accomplishment became addicting to me,” Robert said. “After that day, I swore I would work to run a 5K without slowing to a walk.”

Robert said the more he ran, the more he felt he needed to run. “I felt like my whole life was skyrocketing upward,” he explained. A few months after his first 5K, he ran his second race, this time without walking. Then he did his first 10-mile run. In May 2014, he ran his first marathon. By then Robert was 160 pounds lighter!
