Canadian Tony Bassi (Tony Bussey) has lost 147 kilograms after during the evacuation in case of fire on the plane took two seats. Bassi promised myself that this will not happen again, and began to lose weight.
In 2016 it started a forest fire in the Fort Mc Murray. Tony and his colleagues thought that the incident will not affect them, and continued to work as usual. But after a while the fire has reached such proportions that the authorities decided to evacuate the inhabitants of the nearby settlements on the aircraft.
While Toney weighed 257 kilograms. When the man arrived at the airport for the evacuation of staff put it at the start line due to weight. And on the plane because of its considerable size, Tony won just two seats.
"I have seen that people have to wait due to the fact that I was too fat, and next to me you can not sit down. It was too much. I thought I need to change something. "
This is the moment when Tony realized that because of him someone is not enough space on the plane, changed his life forever.
"I kept thinking, 'Someone's wife or husband, someone's family member is waiting for his mom, dad loved one returns home. But he has to wait longer, because I'm too fat and can not be put next to one with me. " This has had a huge influence on me. " Tony started to lose weight the next day after the evacuation. First, he took up his power - Remove the skin from chicken and replaced the fries for vegetables. And he began to move more.
"Two years ago I could barely walk to his car and barely placed in it."
Tony gradually increase the load, first I went on for five minutes, then ten, and then on the rise. Now Tony weighs 110 kilograms, with about 13 kilograms - is excess skin, which he plans to get rid of. In the near term Bassi wants to enroll in a gym, and three years later, the fifth anniversary of the evacuation, to run a marathon. Another dream Tony - travel. Previously, he could not afford it because of the weight, and now is going to catch up.
Tony wants his story to inspire others to change.
"Before, I had no hope. It was just total desperation. I'm just waiting to die, as it were, sad as it may sound, but such was life. But in fact, there is hope. I was 41 when I started to lose weight. If I could, then everyone can. "
