The happy couple poses after their weight loss before climbing the altar
A British couple from Bristol took the term “wedding diet” to a new level losing almost 90 pounds before their marriage.
Lee Coggins, the groom, weighed 160 pounds, while Kim James weighed 125! Both used to eat extremely greasy meals like garlic bread, large pizzas, ice cream and chocolates, all drizzled with beer and wine for dinner, according to the Daily Mail.
James said he felt a revelation after seeing a picture of her with her future husband and two daughters, one of whom was a newborn at the time, and was shocked by the image. She refused to show the photo to anyone due to embarrassment.
“I always knew I was overweight, but until I saw the picture I didn’t realize how bad it was,” James said. “The hardest part was seeing a picture of my two girls, one of them newborn. “
James said many of his wedding guests did not even recognize the couple.
