This Couple Lost 280 lbs Of Weight Together. Such An Inspirational Story.

In 2011, Robert Foster weighed 327 lbs. and his wife Jessica weighed 287 lbs. Being overweight had really started to affect them and their lives and really desired to make a change.

They told reporters the weight just kept on building up, and as they got bigger the addictive habits that they created were really difficult to kick.


In 2012, they decided that it was time to make a serious change. Being overweight really took its toll on their self-esteem and affected their ability to play around with their kids.

Jessica enrolled in a Zumba class. And guess what; she was able to loose a whopping 14 lbs in the first week. Robert was not sold quite yet but was willing to do a little dieting.


These guys were able to cut a huge amount of weight. By that December, Rob entered his first 5K. Jessica finished with a better time than he did, after the hype of the competition he really started to get serious.
