Colin Corfield, who is 39 years old has been able to lose 39 stones and has been enjoying his life.
Six months back, his doctor told him that he had to lose weight or he would die in the next six months. Doctors told him that there is one chance out of 20 where he could die from the surgery. But Corfield decided to go through the gastric bypass surgery.
Corfield did not have money for the surgery operation. So his mother sold her house to pay the £32,000 gastric bypass surgery operation changes.
Colin has problems with his weight right from the beginning. Even in his childhood his family saw his putting on weight and his weight problem became worse with time.
"Now I feel fantastic - I can't describe it. Now I'm down to 16 stone. "I was very, very sad at the time I was heavy. "People would say 'Col you're getting too big you've got to do something about it,' but I just wouldn't listen to them. "But I'm not sad anymore - I've got my life back. "I can go back and watch the match at Everton. I used to do it all the time before I got too big to get through the turnstile."
