Former 700 lb. man talks about weightloss


WELL, A PASCO COUNTY MAN IS GAINING RECOGNITION WORLDWIDE FOR LOSING WEIGHT. A LOT OF WEIGHT. OUR VERY OWN MEREDYTH CENSOLLO IS HERE ON WHAT MOTIVATED HIM, WHY HE DID IT. YOU’LL MEET SAL AND 3 YEARS AGO HE WEIGHED OVER 700 POUNDS. WE’RE NOT SURE EXACTLY HOW MUCH HE WEIGHED BECAUSE THERE WASN’T A SCALE BIG ENOUGH. NOW, WHEN YOU’RE THAT LARGE YOU SPEND A LOT OF TIME ONLINE. WELL, SAL THESE DAYS IS ON THE COMPUTER A LOT BUT NOT JUST TO PASS TIME IT’S TO MOTIVATE OTHERS. AT 700 POUNDS HE RARELY LEFT HOME. PHOTOS OF HIS DAD CONSTANTLY IN VIEW. MY FATHER WHEN HE DIED WAS 42. HE HAD A HEART ATTACK AND I REALIZED THAT IF I CONTINUED DOWN THE ROAD I WAS GOING TO MAKE 40. JANUARY 1ST, 2014, SAL COMMITTED TO LOSING WEIGHT CUTTING OUT JUNK, AND WALKING IN HIS POOL. IT ALLOWS ME TO SUPPORT THEM AS MUCH AS THEY SUPPORT ME. WHEN AFTER MORE THAN 2 YEARS OF NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS HE UNDERWENT WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY HE SHARED THAT TOO. I WAS 433 POUNDS THE DAY OF SURGERY. BUT IT’S THIS VIDEO THAT’S BEEN SEEN WORLDWIDE. LOW HANGING SKIN BELOW MY BELLY BUTTON. HIS 360-POUND WEIGHT LOSS LEFT HIM WITH 80 POUNDS OF SAGGING SKIN. AND I WOULD MUCH RATHER DEAL WITH THE SKIN AND DEAL WITH BEING ALMOST 700 POUNDS BUT IT PRESENTS ITS OWN SET OF ISSUES THAT YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH. CONSTANT INFECTIONS, PAIN A BODY LIKE A DEFLATED BALLOON. CONSTANT DAILY REMINDER WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE MIRROR THAT THE SHELL THAT’S LEFT IS SOMEBODY WHO YOU NO LONGER ARE. HE NEEDS 3 TO 6 SKIN REMOVAL SURGERIES NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE BECAUSE THEY’RE CONSIDERED COSMETIC. HE’S AGAIN TURNED TO THE INTERNET SETTING UP A FEW FUND ME PAGE TO RAISE THE MONEY HE NEEDS. HE DOESN’T PLAN TO SHOP SHARING HIS STORY LETTING OTHERS KNOW CHANGE IS POSSIBLE WHEN YOU’RE READY TO MAKE IT. . YOU HAVE TO EARN EVERY POUND. THEY’RE NOT TREE. . ALL RIGHT. SO I HAVE SAL’S OLD SHIRTS HERE. THEY’RE A SIZE 8 XL. HIS GOAL IS TO ONE DAY FIT INTO ONE OF THESE LEGS. SO HIS GOFUNDME PAGE IS UNDER SAL AFESSY. WE’LL MAKE SURE IT’S ON

  2. several weight loss stories have told me that skin removal surgery IS NOT COSMETIC!! It is medically nessary due to the weight loss. Watch some fat doctor episodes on YOU TUBE and some of those episodes let you know that it's NOT COSMETIC. It is a medical necessity to have it removed. As long as the doctor deems it to be a medical necessity it will be taken care of by insurance.

  3. I only lost about a hundred pounds, without surgery and verrry gradually (almost four years). But I’m a human raisin. The excess skin flaps around when I walk. I often wear tight leggings to minimize that.

  4. I know he did it to himself, but I can't believe they'd consider that "cosmetic" Its not stupid botox to make someone look like a john travolta kind of freak. He did the work and deserves to live now. Health care should definitely fund this. The rolls and stretched skin will get infected and cause disease, so its not cosmetic in my mind.

  5. Skin removal surgery should be free. It's a miracle that these ppl can lose this weight. I know fat ppl who stay fat for just the reason that they know what they'll look like if they lose weight.

  6. well the skin issue is on you mate you was the one smiling in your pictures wasn't you hey
    thinking you was being smart tucking away all the food and leftovers
    well now mr saggy skin is knocking on your body reminding you of how you fucked it up you idiot

  7. If he can loose weight without surgery to get surgery. He doesn't need the surgery he just got duped by greedy as doctors.

  8. I congratulate him on the weight loss. Sad the insurance will not cover the surgery. Hope he gets the money for the surgery. it is for a good cause. Strange. The hospital would rather him get sick than help him stay healthy. makes no sense.

  9. People love using obesity as an excuse for why healthcare should not be free, here we have a man who actually worked his ass off and changed himself for the better and it costs him 100,000 dollars out of pocket to fix his skin, which causes him medical issues?

    THIS is why we need free healthcare, people already want to help this guy, they paid taxes AND donated to fund his operations.

  10. 100k to remove fucking skin…. I don't get it? Government – get the fuck out of medicine/healthcare and let motherfuckers compete.

  11. NOBODY has 80 lbs. of skin. Not Sal. Not anybody.
    Get down to 10% body fat then tell us how much skin you have. It is this kind of misinformation that is demotivating. Jesus, do a TINY bit of research!

  12. 100,000 USD for skin removal??? Surely he could go to a latin american country and do that for 15 grand or something not like a 2 year salary.

  13. Wanna lose that fat? Excersize.. A local man lost a lot of weight without excersize.. He had the same flab..

  14. how did he lose the weight.. if it was just dietry and no exercise, i can understand why he has excess skin.. if he exercised and ended up with all that skin, im not sure he did the right thing.. anyhow he looks better- as long as he keeps his clothes on, and i admire the efforts he clearly put in.. plus £100k is way too much- go the uk and pay private and it will be much cheaper for surgery
