The Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge: Who Won't Make It?: John

John's Progress
Dr. Phil follows up with 800-pound John.
John was fighting for his life when, at 800 pounds, he turned to Dr. Phil for help. Since then, he's lost 70 pounds.


"I'd like to thank you again for your weight intervention," he tells Dr. Phil. "With your generosity, Quest Diagnostics did my blood work, Dr. Scott Banks arranged a visit with a dentist and my fiancee Suzanne and

I have even started a support group." Since being on the program, John says that Suzanne has lost 20 pounds.


John also has more good news for Dr. Phil. "The best news is that I was able to get off the couch, take a few steps and sit in a chair for a few minutes," he says. "While I have a long, long way to go, I am determined to regain my life. I am so proud of myself and grateful for your support."
