We’ve always heard once you get to a certain age, it’s impossible to change your tune. Becky Hensley hopes her unconventional story shatters conventional wisdom.

She and her husband Donnie, both in their seventies, are now the picture of health.

The Hensley home is full of “before” pictures. They once weighed about 370 pounds each.

Becky says she could barely walk, and needed divine intervention.

“I was praying, and the Lord spoke to me, and said, ‘Go find Donnie, and ask him to go to Weight Watchers with you.’”

Seven years later, they proudly show us the pants they used to wear. Donnie’s lost 165 pounds, while Becky’s lost 208 pounds.

“It hurts me when I see folks that are big like this. Because it’s just been such a tremendous journey that God has blessed,” Becky said.

“I can’t imagine going back and being that big,” adds Donnie.
