  • No sympathy. Only the smallest minority are that overweight due to a medical condition. The rest have been shovelling the worst foods into their mouths and not exercising. That IS a choice. They didn’t get that size overnight. It happened over a long period of time and consistent behaviour. At any point the could have made other choices and DECIDED not to. This is their own fault. Many people have depression of the worst kind and don’t end up that size. It’s the consequences of their own life choices, not an accident.

  • Very informative,but next comes the problem of dieting and exercise.Unless one has an exceptionally good reason to lose weight,over and above,the aforesaid medical evidence, it is hopeless.For,in a contest between the immagination and the Will,the imagination always wins.

  • I’m ok with fat people but I don’t like the extreme fat people saying that there ok, I understand that your beautiful but me suggesting losing weight has nothing to do with your looks, IT HAS TO DO WITH BEING HEALTHY AND LIVING LONGER stop being ignorant if you truly believe that you’re beautiful than you wouldn’t risk your life for food because who wants somebody that’s really beautiful to die young ❤️

  • We feel guilty if we get McDonald’s once a year… so grateful to have this kind of consciousness. Hope they would want the best for the sake of their life.

  • for natural weight loss solution without food controlling or exercises contact or Watsap 9539275071 or Dm me to ajumehrab on my Instagram


  • recommend study on Dr. Jennifer Daniels Protocols for removing TOXINS from the body. And the Herbal Tea’s such as Danelion and Neem, along with intermitting Fasting.

  • Slogan of the Americans must be: we love to eat every junk food aka fast food that’s literally at every block every single day and don’t even do exercise.

  • What I don’t understand is that you don’t wake up one morning at this weight, it comes on slowly…… why don’t people see this when there is time to do something about it. I do understand that it’s hard but like all addictions it has to be your choice, your will power that overcomes the addiction.

  • I would like to know what the life expectancy is in Texas. And could we have the music louder next time please? I could still understand some of the narration.

  • No its nkt the tunnel vision we dont say that we nudge you from your size but we do tell you look awful and the first one who should notice it and try to change it ks you…you just need willpower but in that point i think you behind 20 goals and it 70min on tje clock

  • What’s even sadder is people are promoting it as a good thing if you are one of these people tell me what is good about it because I haven’t got a clue. I don’t discriminate like to this woman I feel very sorry for her but we can’t promote it

  • Once I read a report which concluded if the whole world would live an American lifestyle… we would need 10 Earths to support it.

  • I’m shocked to see no one in surgery wearing face masks. Behind every morbidly obese person is the enabler. Sheila is very obese herself and played a key role in enabling her friends obesity. She needs to get a grip on her own obesity.

  • “I was trying every diet on the planet”. I see there are no news from the fattietown, and the craziest ones the better. Just persuading you why even try, and that´s why they choose them.

  • Evil people are excused, all of them. At least by me. Who hates pedophiles? Who hates murderers? Who hates… cheaters?

    Maybe I”d express hate towards what’s torturing me, but I know they don’t deserve it.

  • I am 16 years old and 6 weeks ago I was 17.8 stone. I have drastically changed my diet and amount of exercise that I do. I can now fit into some of my old size ‘Large’ shirts which I am so pleased about. I used to wake up in the morning and feel like rubbish. This was most likely from my awful diet and heavy lack of exercise. Now I feel a lot better. It is now currently September of 2019 and by the beginning of 2020 in January, as a long term goal for me I hope to hit 15 stone flat. However, this is not my ultimate end goal. That is to continue doing what I’m doing. Trying to live a better and healthy life because trust me you will feel better. And don’t change for anybody else, change for YOU! Thank you and have a good life, Luke:-)

  • Linda has no problem with her size

    Diane thinks there’s nothing wrong with her size when she looks at the mirror ��
    Well done America

  • It’s the most heartbreaking to are obese children. The American government is a joke, allowing pop and candy vending machines in public schools? Is that money really worth the well being of children?

  • I wish we could see people who have had the surgery and it hasn’t gone well—complications. I wish her well. She’s never been what you would call proper weight though

  • I relate to her so much…so VERY MUCH…BUT I’m too embarrassed to say how. It’s not the same at all but can relate with constantly obsessing over my own addiction and cant seem to get through it cuz I don’t have ANY real support and beating ANY ADDICTION shouldn’t be so lonely! Right? Or am I wrong? I wish I’d able to find this kind of help too. Take care and God Bless EVERYONE!!

  • great video, so many people have given up on themselves and decided to promote that being big is beautiful and calling people fat shamers but trying to let them know that their health is being put at risk.

  • I am 31 years old and my weight is 13.54 stones. I am obese.. i have dry sinus, i have anxiety depression i have low blood sugar problm i have high bp prob. I feel dizzy and numbness in my left arm amd leg high heart rate.. scarry thoughts.. fear of death.. i can not sleep very well i have breathing problem… i live in a village in Pakistan.. we dnt have gym or doctors near to our home. I am trying to lose weight but i dnt k ow how to start my day i mean what should i eat?? And what not?? Plz plz plzzzz help me ������������������������������������

  • I cannot stop gaining weight. I am 350 lbs and eat only 1600 calories per day. What do I do? I’m in a lot of pain. The weight just won’t come off.

  • I love how I’m underweight and while watching this I’m scared of the none-existing fast food I eat and how it is effecting my body.

  • everytime she eats a burger, she is choosing to live like this. people like her annoy me so much. no one is forcing her to live like that

  • But what about the excess skin after she does lose all of her away what is what’s going to happen with that I mean do you guys take it off or what I don’t understand what’s going to happen with the excess skin is Left Behind may God be with her and God bless her amen

  • For some reason calling those two women “friends” weirded me out. It’s obvious they are partners, so I wonder why they kept calling them friends.

  • What’s very surprising to me, for a,surgery that occurred in 2013, no one on surgical team was wearing surgical masks! I’m shocked. Anyhow, I’m so happy these 2 persons did so well!

  • Never use to have this obesity in the UK. When I was growing up we saw 1 yes 1 person who was obese and she had thyroid problems. She lived in the next village. It was rare to see any obese people. A lot of people walked everywhere and had home cooked food not all this ready made junk food. Fish and Chips from the chippie were a once a fortnight treat. Having a cake and tea at a cafe was also an occasional treat. Family Swimming was common in the Summer. Playing Tennis and cycling was popular.

  • These British doctors are so gentle, caring and non judgmental. American doctors could learn something from these men about treating patients with dignity. ❤❤

  • I am glad there is surgery as an option, but it is not for me.  My plan and effort is to lose it with eating healthy and exercising…being committed to a healthy lifestyle.  I started my YouTube channel to encourage myself and others to lose in whatever way works for them. Best wishes to everyone on this journey.

  • I eat 5+ times a day (besides my dessert and other small meals) but I’m still thin (not skeleton thin but ectomorph kind of thin). Docotors have got it all wrong there are several factors that cause obesity besides overeating… I am a living witness (and no, I don’t have HIV)

  • This should be like My 600 lb. Life where they actually show hugely obese people going to a drive-through and ordering enough food for four people, as a “snack” in between “regular meals”.


  • Why do they ALWAYS claim that they’re not making a choice? Obviously she didn’t wake up one day and decide she’d LIKE to be super morbidly obese, but what she did do, is to CHOOSE the enjoyment of food over the struggle that will save her life.

  • I have 100% permanently curable all natural and herbal treatment for obesity fell free to call me on +918905193404 and get rid of all these clinics and hospitals who never cure your diseases and charge huge

  • “I am comfortable in my own skin, I wont apologize to anybody for the way I am”…her relatives must help her wear shoes…its selfish to think like this, at least say something

  • Many years ago a friend of mine always had the same answer to this subject. He sat on a panel with two other learned people considering the claims of obese people claiming for financial assistance to beat their illness, they blamed their condition on birth defects. He always gave the same answer saying that he had served in WW2 as a prisoner of war for five years, a total 5 thousand prisoners were in that camp and every one of them was stick thin, he always finished by saying it is what you shovel down your throat that causes obesity.

  • Doctors nowadays just define the diseases/problems without any idea of how to treat/solve them!!

    Heart diseases
    ,,,, etc

  • Ugh. I went on a cruise ship that left out of Galveston Texas. More than half the people on board were from Texas and I was GOBSMACKED at how HUMONGOUS a lot of those people were. Just gross.

  • I thought I was big at 130 pounds at 5,10 1/2. I’m in the uk and I have no seen a fat person in months. In my school no kid is fat and there is 2500 of us.

  • The woman bringing her food, should be in jail. She made her this way, if she cannot walk to cook, then give her a minimal amount of food. Don’t over feed her and kill her

  • More than 90% of all videos are furnished with this annoying noise
    what is the rationale behind it? i long to listen and watch a quiet docu
    without straining to hear the narration, had to give it up after 5 mins

  • What these people don’t realize is that they are not only harming their health but also their families. If they have children, how is this going to impact them?

  • When she said ‘best thing since sliced bread..ohh i shouldnt talk about food’..it made me giggle soo much. What a spirit. Well done for losing so much x

  • What is pity is that young girls with very pretty faces are becoming obese. It’s very common. Also common is to be proud about being fat. Lol fat man belongs in garbage, don’t worry fat lady’s! ��

  • In Europe we have different food.Or different style of eating. And I guess that’s why we are thinner. But if we compare Europe with Asians we are fat. Because Japanese, Koreans etc are more thinner then anyone. M in Asia is XS for Europe.
