A resident of the English city of Jarrow, Tyne and Wear, put on weight to 317 kilograms and faced the risk of premature death. According to the newspaper The Sun, due to obesity, he was in a wheelchair.
Mark Sehman, 49, was a former bodybuilder with a healthy and fit body. In his youth, he repeatedly went on diets and followed a sports regimen in order to lose weight, but after a while the extra pounds returned. “I am 198 centimeters tall, so my normal weight is about 127 kilograms,” he says. “But I've always had to struggle with being overweight, even when I was young.”
In 2008, with a weight of 254 kilograms, Seman managed to lose about 50-60 kilograms. “I was good at it. But after years the weight returned, and I recovered to 317 kilograms,”he explained.
Doctors warn that Seman has reached extreme obesity. The Briton hardly walks and most often moves in a wheelchair. “I'm in a critical situation. The doctors say that I can die at any moment. I risk not making it until Christmas,”he notes. - I have sleep apnea, so I choke when I sleep. I use a machine that helps me breathe at night."
In order for Seman to be admitted to stomach reduction surgery, he needs to lose at least 100 kilograms. He has already started to eat a balanced diet. “I have a long way to go, and it will be very difficult,” says the Briton.
In April, it was reported that a resident of the English city of Derby, who weighed 323 kilograms, lost two-thirds of his weight and got a job in a hospital. Thus, he decided to thank the doctors who made a significant contribution to his weight loss. His responsibilities include helping doctors in all departments.
