Weighing over 496 lbs (225 kg), Liang Yong was certainly one of the largest people in China. He was so large that he could not fit into an ambulance. Thus, when he had to be taken to a hospital, he had to be paraded around town on a cart while the paramedics followed behind!

It was one of the most embarrassing moments in his life yet it was also something that saved him.

Not wanting to experience such an embarrassing situation again, Liang embarked on a weight loss journey which helped him lose 176 lbs (80 kg) so far.

Because he wanted to make sure he would not have lots of loose skin when he gets thinner, Liang vowed not to go on a crash diet. He also exercised hard enough to lose his extra fats yet not as hard that he would have sagging skin afterwards.

The results have been great so far. Liang still looks and weighs more than the average person his height yet he is considerably lighter than he had been before. He vowed to continue his weight loss program and shrink to a regular weight naturally.

Good luck, Liang! Great job!
