Arthur, a 31-year-old from Portland, Oregon, said with tears in his eyes that he’s actually lost 129 pounds in the past year, having previously weighed in at 646 pounds.
The 5-foot-8 stay-at-home dad’s body fat registered at a dangerous 80 percent on Tuesday’s episode, as he said he suffers from heart problems and diabetes as a result of his obesity.
