Obese Man Drops Over 200 Pounds After Weight Gain ‘Ruined’ His Marriage And Made Sex Impossible

Giovanna was born in Rome, Italy and currently resides in South Salem, New York. In her free time, she likes to cook with her children and grandchildren.

If this doesn’t motivate someone to lose weight, nothing will!

A Tennessee man lost an astounding 222 pounds in an incredible body transformation, all because he became, in his words, “too fat for sex.”

Stephen Ringo was over 400 pounds at his largest and had an enormous 60-inch waist, which is all the more shocking considering he’s just 5 feet 7 inches tall.

He wasn’t always so large, though. Stephen was a power lifter in the past and kept himself in great shape, but the IT expert’s weight skyrocketed when he started regularly eating two Big Macs, two large fries, two large Cokes, and 20 Chicken McNuggets every day for lunch. Not to mention an entire Domino’s pizza at dinnertime.

Stephen blames his weight for the collapse of his marriage. “It was the single biggest factor,” he says. “My relationship with my wife deteriorated as my weight crept up.”

It got so bad that he couldn’t even put on his own socks, but far more troubling, it destroyed the connection between him and his wife. “I was depressed, and as that set in intimacy kind of left. My weight drove my sex life into the ground.”

They divorced a few years ago, which served as the wake-up call for Stephen. He reignited his passion for power lifting, and in just two years has shed more than half of his starting weight!
