Good luck to him. I'm sure there's a lot to be said about not letting yourself get into this situation in the first place, but I hope the story has a happy ending.

Reminds me of a Louis Black about the guy suing McDonalds because he was overweight:

Excuse me, do you mean to tell me that you didn't know that FAT cooked in FAT has FAT in it???

I think someone who is this obese has some physiological problem, that his "wiring" is off and he never feels sated. I think he should get the gastric bypass procedure as soon as his weight is low enough for him not to be killed by the anesthesia.

Here's what I don't get: Why doesn't a hockey team put pads on this guy, tow him out onto the rink with the Zamboni, and lay him in front of the net?

"But when you're an overweight child in a society that demands perfection, your sense of right and wrong will always be terribla' skewed! I eat because I'm unhappah...I'm unhappah because I eat..."

"Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior of my life. I am a born again Christian and very proud of it. I have received a lot of letters and e-mails since my original story was aired, and most if not all of them mention "keeping me in their prayers." Those letters are important to me, because "wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there am I also" says the Lord. With the Lord in my corner, and all the prayers I am receiving from those who wrote and even those who are praying and have not yet written, I feel that I cannot fail, and I feel a great amount of love." -Patrick Deuel

Rodney, I hate to laugh at jokes about people's problems, but that was funny.

Seriously, I almost cried for the guy and I really hope he is successful and starts to enjoy life.

He's already had the surgery. It's mentioned in a later part of the article.

Talk about enabling!! How someone can continually bring a person like this food is beyond my ken. I remember a guy on a trash/talk show in the 80's, talk about eating a dozen eggs, a lb of bacon and a loaf of bread for breakfast. Then of course multiple chickens and lbs of potatoes for dinner. Somone in these cases should be criminally liable. If they cannot walk anymore, they have a problem, when they can no longer get through a door or get off of their back, there is abuse at work.
