At his heaviest Steven Goodwin, 39, weighed 420 lbs after years of living on a diet of takeaways and microwave meals. In 2011, he was rushed to hospital when he collapsed and doctors told him that he needed to start losing weight immediately if he wanted to live. It was only when he saw the reaction of his parents to the news that Steven decided to fight for his life.
Only days from death, he started a healthy diet immediately and has managed to lose 238 lbs (108 kg) in the 13 months since his diagnosis. Now Steven not only has a slimmer, healthier body, but also a new lease on life.
So congrats to Steven and his monumental achievement.
