changing yourself not so long ago this guy from Novi Michigan weighed more than 300 kilograms and didn't leave this house for several years in that time Jesse felt miserable and vented his anger on the world by publishing hater comments on the Internet when he stumbled upon the website for body builders Jesse published his photo there and invited users to ask the fattest man on the site anything the guy held his breath in anticipation of the upcoming hostility but everything went not quite as he expected instead of being enraged by Jesse the athletes were sympathetic to him and shared advice on nutrition and training one of the users even bought the guy an inflatable pool because Jesse simply couldn't fit in the shower suddenly the compassion of strangers inspired Jesse for two years Jesse worked out hard visiting the gym five times a week completely abandoned junk food and began to maintain a new diet of course the first steps were the most challenging for him but he felt constant support from the members of that bodybuilding forum for example one guy advised to start his workout with a daily walk around the house gradually increasing the number of laps and then move on to squats and another user gave Jesse a barbell and a pair of dumbbells so that he could start working out at home a little later when Jesse could already go to the gym on its own local athletes volunteered to help it with his workouts they also prepared a new diet for it gradually Jesse began to return to his former lifestyle he made new friends started shopping and finally could sit in the driver's seat of his favorite car in a couple of years he lost more than 50 percent of his weight Jesse weighed 120 kilograms a good part of which was muscles are quiet through hard work he had to
