1,345 The record has been broken
No it wasn't me that that broke the record it was this fat **** at 1,345 pounds.
I'm not sure if it counts as Monday motivation or not, but it sure as hell makes me want to run a few miles.
(CNN) - King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has intervened to help a man who has become one of the heaviest people in the world.
The king ordered Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari, who weighs 1,345 pounds (610kg) and is unable to move by himself, be transferred from the Southern border province of Jazan to the country's capital Riyadh to undergo treatment.

According to Guinness World Records, the record weight for a living person is held by Manuel Uribe from Mexico, who weighed 1,235 pounds (560kg) in 2006. After making a television appeal for help, his weight in March 2012 had fallen to 980 pounds (444.6 kg.)
According to the official spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Health, Shaari was due to arrive in Riyadh either later Monday or on Tuesday. Pictures showed a fork-lift truck lifting him in is bed. The spokesman said Shaari is aged between 18 and 20.
He will be treated at the King Fahd Medical City, and undergo a series of dietary and physical programs in order to help him lose weight, the spokesman said. Although surgery is not scheduled at the moment, the Ministry of Health says it has not been ruled out. Special beds and trolleys have been made for him.

Most people would consider 345 to be obese, but that guy is obese + 1K.
How in the **** does someone get that god damn fat??
610kg is seriously bariatric.
I work as a manual handling advisor for healthcare in Queensland and the biggest person we have had through my hospital was about 320kg. The worst part was that he lived in a toll bridge and to extract him they had to shut down traffic for a couple of hours, tear out a window and then load him onto a gantry and lower him down with a crane to the bariatric ambulance.
So not only did he manage to make my work life hell for 3 months, he also added an extra hour onto my trip home that afternoon.
I can't even begin to understand how much food that guy must have been shoving in his gob. He must spend most of his time awake shoveling food in his face.
I'm not sure if I should feel pity or disgust.
If this had been a woman, the House of Saud would have just had her shot.
Poor bugger, it must be almost impossible to see a way back from that kind of state.
I bet he can see his way to the next meal easily enough though.
