A former chauffeur who weighed 448 pounds has lost a third of his body weight after he got so fat he was told he might die and could no longer fit behind the wheel of his car.

He would consume fast food meals in his car because he was terrified restaurant chairs would break under his weight.

After reaching 448 pounds, he stayed in his room and ordered take-aways until his legs 'turned black' and his mother forced him to go to the doctor.
