You might remember a story from a few years back about an obese couple from Sichuan province who resolved to lose weight so that they could have sex and start a family. Well, you’ll be happy to know that they are well on their way to doing so.
Here’s what Lin Yue and Deng Yang looked like back in 2015…
And here’s what they look like now.
Two years ago, the couple weighed a combined 400 kg. Now they are down to 200 kg.
Back in 2015, they moved to a hospital in Changchun, Jilin province to undergo gastric bypass surgery. They stayed on at the hospital for more than a year afterward where they continued to lose weight by eating healthy and exercising regularly.
In their weight loss, the couple is driven by their dream of starting a family. Obesity is linked to fertility problems for women and low sperm count for men. Lin and Deng believe that by slimming down they will have a better chance of having a healthy baby and becoming incredible parents.
But before that happens, the couple is still intent on trimming down their waistlines even further.
