- Angela and Willie Gillis
Two years can really make all of the difference for two people. These residents of Beaumont Texas, Angela and Willie Gillis, are role models of change for people everywhere. In 2011, Angela realized that she was sick of her current weight, and her husband was “tired of being big.”
Willie studied up on weight-loss techniques for years and then took that all-important step to plunge into it one day. This couple started hitting the gym six times a week, beginning by walking the treadmill. At the beginning, Angela was 338 pounds and Willie was around 492. He lost 300 pounds and she dropped 200, going from a size 28 to a size 0. She now teaches classes at her gym.
