Looking for some motivation to get fit and healthy? Well, this amazing couple lost 600 pounds together before they got married!
There’s a saying that goes “good things come in pairs.” In Andrea Masella and Ronnie Brower’s case, being together helped get them through losing a total of 600 pounds together.
“It was love at first sight”
Back in 2014, Ronnie weighed 675 pounds and Andrea weighed 250 pounds. Both of them were trying to make positive changes in their lives by being healthier and losing weight.
As fate would have it, both of them found each other at the right time, and they helped motivate each other to lose a total of almost 600 pounds of weight. And they’ve kept the weight off since then!
The couple shared that they met each other at the gym, with Andrea sharing, “We started talking at the gym and I hate to sound cliche but it was love at first sight.”
It wasn’t easy for them to lose weight
It was a struggle for the couple to lose weight; as Andrea said, “Both of us had used food as a coping mechanism — I would just eat my feelings.”
“We’ve gone through a lot of counseling to come to terms with that and change,” she adds.
Ronnie even had to go through 4 skin removal surgeries to help remove the excess skin that remained after he lost all of that weight And through it all, Andrea was always by his side.
Eventually, the couple got married and are now looking forward to leading happier and healthier lives, together. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
