An obese couple from Sichuan are determined to undergo gastric bypass surgery in order to improve their health and have children together.
Married since 2010, Lin Yue and Deng Yang, both 30 years old, weigh a combined 400 kilograms. As you might imagine that makes creating offspring a bit difficult.
Deng even says that because of her weight, she had a difficult time finding a wedding gown that would fit her and eventually had to order a customized one online.
To fulfill their dreams of parenthood, the couple have recently come all the way from their hometown in Sichuan to a hospital in Changchun, Jilin province in a bid to receive weight-loss surgery.
Perhaps, they were inspired by China’s “most obese woman,” who recently got her stomached stapled in Changchun.
Lin is a worker while his wife is a nurse. Lin is 163 cm tall and his waist measures 160 cm around. Meanwhile, Deng is a bit shorter at 160 cm tall, but her waist measures 170 cm, reports Tencent.
The determined couple are currently sticking to an exercise regime before their scheduled surgery.
Lin told reporters that once the surgery was completed, they would buy new clothes and shoot another series of wedding photos.
