If he looks behind him, he'll find it.

Seeing a pic of that guy somewhere other than in his room is pretty amazing in its own right.

This.

anyone who can commit themselves to that much.. even as a percentage of bodyweight (in this case 45%) should not be mocked.

Kudos to him.

Totally. It's pretty damn amazing to lose so much weight starting from upwards of 1200 lbs, considering that he can't really DO much exercising. Lifting arms in place, etc is about it.

So that's what happened to Reuben Studdard. Good on him!
 
2008-10-03 12:22:05 PM  
Now if he could get his woman to shape up before letting her out of the house in see-through blouses...

Whoa. I can totally see thru her blouse.

STILL FAT


but I'm proud of him nonetheless
 
2008-10-03 12:23:00 PM  
This guy serves as a shining example to fatties everywhere that everyone can lose weight if they try. I'm not discriminatory against overweight people, but it annoys the crap out of me when they start crying that society is against them and fat is a healthy norm. If you don't want to be charged for second seats on airplanes or pay higher prices when your clothing requires the use of more fabric, suck it up and lose some weight.

I hope he can get surgery to tuck in the extra skin...he might have some other health issues if he can't. Keep it up dude, you're living the dream!

I watched a show about this dude on discovery.

It's pretty cool because he says it's totally his fault for being fat and anyone who blames anything other than the fact that they eat WAAAAAY too much is smoking something....Or eating something.

He puts on music and dances on his bed, thats how we exercises. It was funny and horrific at the same time to watch a 1200 lb dude dancing in a sitting position on a giant bed.

Ladies, this is why you should wear nude bras, not white. White under white != invisible.

It looks as if he's about to suck out her soul. She's all rigid and stuff.

Wow good for him! He's got a good woman there. She's stuck by him through thick and thin.

FTFA: The 43-year-old has shed about 550 pounds since with the help of Solis. The two met four years ago.

Translation: Solis stopped the morons who were enabling the guy. He hasn't been able to get out of bed in years--someone had to keep bringing him crate-loads of food a day.

I give bigger kudos to his finacee who stepped in and literally saved the guy's life.

Uribe said Wednesday he will have a bite of wedding cake for photos, but won't eat any more because his diet prohibits it.

And that one bite is all it will take for the carnage to begin anew. Ten minutes later, there will be no sign of the cake, any of the catered food, or half the guests. He'll be seen outside, tearing around and devouring everything in sight, a crazed, deranged look on his face. God help us all.

FTA: "Uribe said Wednesday he will have a bite of wedding cake for photos, but won't eat any more because his diet prohibits it"

Am I the only one who got images in their mind of this guy taking a tiny bite of his wedding cake for the photo, then having a Homer Simpson adrift in a raft moment* and consuming the whole cake, the bride, her family, the flowers, and anything else that comes within arm shovel reach?

* You know the one, Episode Boy-Scoutz N the Hood (new window).
Homer grabs the ration box and begins to explain that the secret is to take tiny bites. At first he demonstrates by nibbling at some rations tentatively, but then he crams them by double handfuls into his mouth.


/"Since you're all such a big bunch of big ration babies, I'll just be in charge of the rationing."

I hope this guy keeps losing weight. Good for him.

LOL and my thoughts exactly. He must have a hell of a personality ($$$).

His goal is to see his verga by the time he gets married.

Kongressman Grandma: LOL and my thoughts exactly. He must have a hell of a personality ($$$).

I don't understand how someone could afford to get that fat. He must be rich or have rich enablers... truckloads of food aren't cheap.

Well, not being completely hot can be a healthy norm. I think they're right on that one, there is a healthy range of weight.

But if you're in "hm, maybe I need an extra seat" or "dammit why do chairs have to have armrests?" territory, you're outside those lines!

If you need two seats on a plane, they should allow it if available I guess but absolutely you should need to buy them. Same goes for the people who need to take their cellos onboard.

So, you can just roll in and out of Mexico on a bed?
WTF?
Is there a hole with a bucket underneath?
WTF?
Will they sleep on it on their wedding night?
WTF?

He STILL weighs ALMOST 700 POUNDS!!!

That's a hell of a diet. He lost a Jared.

itazurakko: It's pretty damn amazing to lose so much weight starting from upwards of 1200 lbs, considering that he can't really DO much exercising. Lifting arms in place, etc is about it.

Dude, his arms each weighed something like 200 lbs. Sounds like a workout to me.

Hmmm. Must be a new crew here today. The comments regarding the see through shirt have gone as far as requesting of women which color bra to wear with a see-through shirt instead of saying "If you're going to wear a see-through shirt be sure to NOT wear a bra".

Ahh, my eyes no longer burn.

Good on him, though. He is out and about and hopefully the weight will keep coming off of him.

2008-10-03 12:44:05 PM  
As soon as he loses the rest of the weight his skin is gonna flapping around like a flesh parachute. It'll be gross, but at least he'll be able to jump off of tall objects and glide like a flying squirrel.

Yeah, I'm a lady and I like dudes, so I don't want to see lady nips. The rest of you can request whatever you'd like.

If you get so fat that you have to be rolled around in your own customized dolly, you gotta have some dough.
