He lost his weight considerably and several years later, he ballooned back (5 pics)

Posted in Pictures   30 Jun 2009   / 30455 views

Obese man Michael Hebranko has lost and gained 3,000 lbs in his lifetime but now wants to lose weight for good.
The 56-year-old New Yorker weighs 25 stone, but is slowing shedding the pounds.
Yet his tale is one of astonishment. In his incredible lifetime, Hebranko gained and lost more than 214 stone (2,996 lbs), proving himself one of the best and worst dieters of all time.
In 1987, he reached his heaviest weight at a monstrous 79 stone (1,106 lbs). He was lifted out of his home and hospitalised at the brink of death.
Hebranko then went on a crash diet and lost 50 stone in 19 months without surgery. In 1990, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the highest recorded weight loss.
But over the next six years, Hebranko's weight ballooned back to almost 71 stone.
Today, he’s determined to change his lifestyle rather than diet. He says the pounds are coming off at a slow, healthy pace.

His wife is an enabler. Very sad. I hope he reaches his goal and sticks to it.

Holy fucking shit.
I don't see how ANYONE could allow themselves to get over 1000 lbs!!!
The dude seriously needs to have a psychiatric check or something because there's something fucked up in his head.

Stones are used in parts of England & a few other countries.
You'll have to use a conversion thing online to figure out what 1 stone equals.. But I think it's about 10lbs, I could be wrong.

Have to agree ... measuring in stone is a pain and not accurate. I much prefer the metric system. (And yeah, I live in the UK)

As a fat guy of 385 pounds myself, I know how hard it is to lose weight. I've lost lots of weight many times only to put it back on eventually. However, I agree his wife, or whoever keeps bringing him food to eat in bed, is helping him to stay that big. You can bet if I had to bring food to a family member in that position, he'd be eating healthy portions, period. If he doesn't like it he can get out of the bed and get his own food. By the way, a stone is 14 pounds. Not that hard to calculate. 35
