So the lady has a thing for obese men?
'Solis said her family initially opposed the match with Uribe, because her first husband, who was also obese, died of respiratory failure.
"They were worried about me being involved with another fat man, because they thought another husband would die on me," she said.'
Oh and he blames living in the united states for his weight problem spiraling out of control where he had "a nonstop diet of junk food and soft drinks". hmm — such food was not available in Mexico?
apparently it is now as he is launching the Manuel Uribe Foundation to educate people about nutrition and to combat obesity.
Usually Im a very compassionate person but I find it hard to have sympathy for morbibly obese people.......I watched a show on telly last night about a man in a similar position and all he and his family could do was make excuses for why they continue to eat fast food dripping with fat and early death....they were even feeding a four month old child Maccas.Maybe I just need to educate myself on the plight of these people to find some sorrow for them.
Low income was one excuse Floh apparently its cheaper in the states to buy fast food than to eat freash food but I think it has more to do with lifestyle and laziness......I dont like to toot our horn all the time but here it is cheaper to eat fresh seasonal food than it is to buy takeaway ......Maccas here is considered a treat for the kids not a menu plan......we have a obese people too and I have little sympathy for them aswell.......
I think this is a nice story. He used to have the world record for the heaviest person and has since lost 500 pounds. I give anyone who can loose 500 pounds credit. He wants to keep going and be an inspiration for others.
He is going the right direction in life, which is more than I can say about the people (pedophiles, rapests, murderers, abusers etc.) in most of the cases we read here at websleuths.
I'm proud of him for his accomplishments and wish him the best of luck on his continued journey. I hope he can stand at his wedding. That would be a great way to start his new life.

OK I am sorry, but there is something wrong with a woman who is attracted to morbidly obese men. Granted, people should look beyond a person's exterior, but when it becomes the attraction first (which in her case it seems to be)...I would say there are...no pun intended...larger issues in play.
I wish them the best, but will she be happy if he loses the weight? I am glad he has a goal and is working towards a healthier life...but I still say something is off with her. Can't put my finger on it exactly (she probably can't either, just saying).

What I post are my opinions only.
With that said. I will change my comments to "Good for him for loosing the weight" to "Good for him for loosing the weight, not sure what to think about her attraction to the morbidly obese."
These kind of stories always prompt the 'gag' factor in me, it doesn't happen over night, and medically impossible to gain that kind of weight unless the food intake is more than enormous.
Im glad he is losing the weight. Im sure its depression on his part and nothing to do with America obviously that part bothers me because I dont eat like that even though I have it all around me and I live in America. To get that big you have to be depressed and eating would be his comfort, its not any different than any other addiction. I think he needs to look internally for the reason why he overeats or the weight will come back.
To gain perspective on the weight gain-
To gain one pound a week it takes only 500 extra calories to eat over what your body uses. Basically a couple of 20 ounce colas a day above what you would burn. He might have been gaining his entire life to get up to that weight at 52 lbs a year with just a few pops extra and a few too many snacks each day.
Regarding the question of attraction, No I can honestly say I would not be attracted to him as I like my skinny guys, just a preference. I cant comprehend how many women go after "rock stars" when so many of them to me are ugly. To each their own.
