World’s Fattest Man Loses 600 Pounds and Finds a Girlfriend! – The Good News
Every morning at 8:10, 'The Sean and Richie Show" does a feature called "The Good News." Let's face it, the world is full of bad news and catastrophes and the media is falling all over itself to bring it to you. Really, just watching the news every night could lead you to depression. So, as I like to say on the show everyday, that is why we bring you now... "The Good News."
This is good news on so many different levels. Well, they do say things come in threes right?
At 980 pounds, Paul Mason from England was the world's fattest man. In 2010 Paul had gastric bypass surgery and has since lost over 600 pounds! To me, that in itself would be good news and he is thrilled even though he still has and can't lose over 100 pounds of excess skin. The surgery isn't covered by his healthcare and cost $100,000!
Rebecca, Mountain of Massachusetts heard about Paul and was inspired by his weight loss and got in touch with him. They began to Skype and eventually started dating! And despite the fact that Paul has to still use a wheelchair because of the excess skin, she said she loves him.
Here is the best part: a doctor in New York City who heard about Paul has offered to do the surgery for him, at no cost! And Paul intends to move to the United States after the surgery to be with Rebecca.
