44. Danny and Kalean Patton
Danny Patton was only 26 but at 395 pounds, he was already having a hard time reaching his third-floor apartment. This was the turning point that inspired him and his girlfriend Kalean Patton to finally make a big change in their lives.
It started off with cooking healthier and cutting down on take-out food. Next, they joined a gym and started doing simple treadmill and weight exercises, building up their strength as they went. After one year, Danny had lost 200 pounds and Kalean was down 93 pounds herself. They got engaged on live TV and opened a motivational Facebook page called Danny & Kalean – From fat to fit.
