From 342 Pounds To ‘Fit Thick’: Ramie Reed’s Weight-Loss Journey [VIDEO]

“Being overweight my whole life, I had learned to be uncomfortably comfortable.” – Ramie Reed

It wasn’t until she went shopping for her 22nd birthday that Ramie Reed felt uncomfortable in her skin.

She bought a scale and the results blew her mind – she weighed 342.

“I didn’t want to go through the whole diabetes thing. That was the reason why my mom started her health journey,” Reed recalled. “I decided to start walking because I knew that was something that I felt like I could handle.”
