TODAY nutritionist Joy Bauer welcomes husband and wife Justin and Lauren Shelton into the Joy Fit Club, after they lost a combined 502 pounds by swapping out unhealthy foods and encouraging each other on the journey. Justin, 27, and Lauren, 26, who weighed over 450lbs and 341lbs respectively when they married in 2008 said that a kidney infection during a hospital trip forced them to reconsider their unhealthy lifestyles. They decided to eat healthy and exercise. They lost 521lbs in 19 months.
Congratulations to the couple, it’s wonderful that this husband and wife team were able to overcome their issues and lose weight together.
