Losing My Wife Made Me Lose 236lbs | BRAND NEW ME

AT 425Ibs, Robert Saldivar from Waterford, California, struggled with everyday life and would have trouble breathing walking from his car to his front door. By the time Robert would get back into the house he would be pouring in sweat and out of breath. His weight got out of control in 2005 as he would sit down at a desk for hours working in a call center. Robert told Truly: “I was hiding from society, I would just come home from work and stay home. I wouldn’t go to the stores, I didn’t want to be seen in public.” Robert's motivation to lose the weight came after a tragic incident. “What motivated me to lose 236lbs was after my wife passed away. It was after the funeral. I was in a depressed state before and after realising what had happened, it felt like a fog lifted above me and I was able to see myself for the very first time."
