    Accident ruins 800-lb. man's date



    MEXICO CITY - When Manuel Uribe went out on a date, he made all the necessary arrangements: a forklift to carry him out of the house and a flatbed tow truck big enough to haul the formerly half-ton man and his bed to a party.

    But even the open road wasn't big enough to handle Uribe's dream of celebrating a budding romance and his success in losing about 440 pounds.

    Uribe was halfway to a picnic near his Monterrey-area home on Sunday when one of the posts holding a sun-shielding tarp over his bed hit an overpass.................

    This was shocking....

    Uribe says that after losing weight on a high-protein diet he started two years ago, he's down to about 800 pounds.
    He used to weigh 1,235lbs...

    Are those things his balls?
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Well, you got to give him some credit.
    He lost 33% of his body weight in two years, and that is pretty damn good.
    How the hell he got up to 1200+ lbs in the first place is beyond me though.

    You're a glass-is-half-full sort of guy... I like that.

    Very true though, losing 400lbs in two years is pretty remarkable. I'd weight -231lbs... hmmm.....

    Too much Milwaukee's Best and no metal detector to walk it off, I reckon.
