He Lost 425 Pounds

Yes, this is the same guy in all the pictures. A couple of years ago, Ronnie Brower weighed 675 pounds. His doctor told him he wouldn’t live long like that -he might not even make it to age thirty. Brower took that seriously. He gave up drinking and pills, went on a diet, and worked out. Boy, did he work out! With the help of trainers, he has lost 425 pounds!

Brower is a big Taylor Swift fan, and played her music during his workouts for inspiration. His friend Joe Bufano is taking him to a Taylor Swift concert next month, and made this video in hopes that she will meet him then. -via Viral Viral Videos

Thanks, Edward, and, yes, Miss C, I dropped more than 100 a few years ago. It's very difficult issue - medical imaging is advanced enough to know the same parts of some people's brains light up from high-fat, high-carb food the way they do with cocaine. I don't say that as an excuse for me or anyone. The point is that some people have a REALLY difficult time with this stuff, and it's not always the same struggle for one person as it is for another. And OMG...keeping it off is brutal.

Lothar, take pride in that you only had 100 pounds to lose. This guy abused himself to get that heavy. I went from 36% body fat to 19% a decade ago. I appreciate your accomplishment.
