British man moved to the US to take care of the world's fattest womanPictolic
The Briton told how he cares about his wife — the fattest woman in the world. It weighs 330 kg. Simon Johnson moved from the resort town of Bridlington to Tucson, Arizona, to live with his beloved Shannon Lowery. He met his wife on the Internet. The couple got married 10 years ago. Now a man devotes all his time to caring for his wife, who can barely get out of bed by herself. Find out why he made such sacrifices from our material.Simon, 52, says his overweight wife needs help with even the simplest things. He must always be around, but claims that he is happy to give his beloved his care.
Shannon, 40, had a difficult childhood. The father left the mother immediately after the birth of his daughter. The girl was passed from hand to hand for the upbringing of relatives. She was raised by her father, mother, grandmother, and aunts in turn. Officially, the parents divorced when the American was five years old. Her stepmother took care of her, and Shannon is grateful for that. When the stepdaughter was 11 years old, the father divorced his second wife. The girl was again left without her mother's love and care.
At the age of 7, Shannon weighed as much as 45 kg, at 13 – 113 kg, and at 17 – 204 kg. Relatives were forced to lock the refrigerator so that the girl did not eat everything in a row. However, this did not stop her from stealing and hiding another delicious treat in passing.
When the American turned 29, she was bedridden. It was then that Shannon met Simon, playing online games and communicating with their participants on social networks. The Brit immediately fell in love with her smile. Despite the excess weight of his beloved, he considers her beautiful.
The couple married, and in 2011, Simon moved to the United States. Since then, he has lived here permanently.
Last year, a woman decided to change her life and asked for help from Dr. Younan Nowzaradan (Dr Younan Nowzaradan), known for popular reality shows in which he performs operations on people with excess weight. From Arizona, Shannon went to Texas. At that time, it weighed 330 kg. The American woman became one of the fattest contestants on the TV show and probably one of the fattest women in the world.
Shannon says he hates his life because he can't do anything on his own. She just takes a shower, lies down, sits on the bed and eats, doing it with Simon's help. Even small movements cause her pain. The woman regrets that she can not live a normal married life, and the husband is forced to turn into her nurse.
The American managed to lose 18 kg, following a strict diet, which was prescribed to her by Dr. Novzaradan. She consumed 1,200 calories a day, but the weight loss process stopped there. Now the woman attends the gym. She hasn't weighed herself yet after filming the show, because the couple can't find a suitable scale.
Meanwhile, the fattest Brits have changed their lives by losing weight on a TV project. Thanks to the help of specialists and surgical operations, these people have undergone an amazing transformation.
