A 36-year-old father in Florida, US has shared his stunning weight-loss transformation after he almost died of obesity.
At the peak of his weight struggles three years ago, he weighed a staggering 209kg. It was so serious that he even recorded a goodbye video to his son, fearing for his life.
After his hospitalization in 2013, he realized he had to change his lifestyle. He stopped drinking fizzy drinks, cut down on sugar and quit smoking.
With support from his wife Amber, 30, he underwent gastric bypass surgery. He also started walking 10,000 steps a day.
In just under two years, he had shed a whopping 158kg. However, this left him with 12kg of excess skin hanging all over his body. He had more surgeries to remove it.
In an interview, he said: “It’s been worth every moment. It’s definitely given me access to different things I couldn’t do before like running, playing with my son, hiking, swimming and more.”
He has shared his long journey on Instagram, where he has over 26,000 followers, as a way of inspiring others not to give up.
