A 38-year-old obese American software engineer blames his weight for ruining his marriage, because he was too fat for sex, according to a report by The Sun.
However, the end of his marriage in 2016, forced Stephen Ringo to re-evaluate his health. And in just two years, he’s managed to shed an incredible 16st.
“It’s fair to say that my weight ruined my marriage,” said Stephen, from Johnson City, Tennesee. “It was the single biggest factor. .
My relationship with my wife deteriorated as my weight crept up. I was depressed and as that set in, intimacy kind of left. My weight drove my sex life into the ground.”
Despite having once been super-fit, Stephen said that he lived off fast food as an adult, usually going to McDonald’s for lunch and having Pizza for dinner.
But in 2016, the former powerlifter hit the gym every day. Stephen, whose waist has gone from 60ins to 32ins, said his weight loss has changed his life and confidence. 📷: SWNS
