American Stephen Ringo was not a fan of proper nutrition, and his main diet was fast food. Over the years, Stephen gained so many extra pounds that his wife ran away from him. It was then that the man decided to thoroughly take over himself in order to return his beloved. Unfortunately, nothing worked.
Stephen Ringo was a weightlifter at school, but due to his addiction to fast food, he swelled like a balloon and began to weigh 184 kilograms. Usually Stephen ate at McDonald's, where he ordered so much food for himself each time that the cashiers thought it was dinner for the whole family. The figure of the man resembled a square, because in width it was almost the same as in height.
Due to being overweight and having problems with sex life, his wife left Steven in 2016.
"I believe my depression and lack of sex drive drove my wife away from me."
Obesity has affected not only Stephen's marriage, but all aspects of his life.
“It was very difficult to get dressed in the morning, I could barely pull on my socks. And when my wife and I went to New York in 2012, the extra weight was reflected in this trip. We had to walk a lot, but I constantly sat down on the bench to catch my breath. I felt like a failure."
As a result, in 2016, after his wife left, Stephen realized that he could not continue this way and finally decided to lose weight.
He began to train and follow the diet. Of course, I had to forget about fast food. Now his diet consists of only healthy foods. Stephen managed to lose almost half of the weight. True, after losing weight, the man's skin sagged and now he needs an expensive operation, which he plans to do in the future.
Steven's life has definitely changed for the better. But, unfortunately, the ex-wife never returned to him. But thanks to losing weight, Stephen has become more self-confident and now hopes to find a soul mate.
“I don’t feel completely ready yet, but I think I’ll be a great partner for someone. I have become much happier, and that makes a huge difference."
