A couple have lost over 15 stone in just 12 months after ditching nights in front of the TV with junk food and takeaway food, swapping them for joint workout sessions.

Jasmine Parent, 30, and her partner Jeremy Crawley, 27, weighed 295lbs (21 stone) and 333lbs (23 stone) respectively before deciding that enough was enough.

Mother-of-two Jasmine, from Nova Scotia, Canada, claimed that she began binge eating following the death of her father.

Documenting her weight loss journey in Instagram, she went on to lose 125lbs (8 stone 9 pounds) and has since had a tummy tuck to remove excess skin, taking her to a healthy 170lbs (12 stone).

Jeremy on the other hand has shed almost a third of his body weight taking him down to 235lbs (16 stone seven pounds). Their motivation behind the lifestyle change was to set a better example for their two young daughters.

Jasmine weighed 295lbs.
Jeremy's starting weight was 333lbs.

Jasmine said that they were both 'heavy' when they met, but their habits spiralled out of control when her father passed in 2013.

According to the MailOnline, she said: "I started gaining weight and emotionally eating. I wanted to be emotionally present and to interact with my girls and to have the energy for them.

"But my anxiety was almost crippling some days that I couldn't be the mother I wanted to be. I just really hated what I saw in the mirror."

She went on: "In the beginning, I never thought that we would lose this much weight. Our eating habits were horrendous. We didn't prepare any of our meals, barely, at home. We spent a lot of money on junk food and take-out.

"It was possible for us to lose so much weight just by completely switching the way that we were eating."

It wasn't all plain sailing for the couple, who started their journey by doing exercise videos in their living room and following a 21-day meal plan.

The couple started their journey by doing home workouts.

Jasmine continued: "There were days when I felt like I was definitely going to quit. There were days when I left like it wasn't worth it, that I wasn't worth it. But I kept pushing. I wanted to set a great example for my daughters.

"It is just about prioritising. Are we going to spend 20 minutes watching Netflix this evening or are we going to spend 30 minutes in our living room doing a quick work-out?"
