body, no matter how hard you try to exercise and diet. Also you know that when you are overweight with a very high fat content, then your health goes down the drain daily, as well your energy level is non-existent and your life to live is placed on hold. But what if I were to tell you that some people are born overweight, and have a hard time to lose any kind of weight as well as get rid of fat. And so they do the best they can to live with it, would you believe me? Well whether you do or not, today I intend to share with you about a man who was overweight, and did the best he could to live life with this condition.
Allow Me To Introduce To You Mr. Robert Earl Hughes Who Weighed 1069 Pounds.
Mr. Robert Earl Hughes was born in 1926 at a whopping 11.50 pounds as a newborn baby in the small town of Fish Hook, Illinois. And from the very beginning his family knew that something was up with this boy, and because of that it did not surprise them when he weighed an unheard of 203 pounds at just 6 years old, while most grown men who are healthy barely weigh that much. Then by the time he reached the age of 10, he had already tipped the scale at 378 pounds and kept on growing, as well kept on adding the extra pounds. And whether this was a glandular problem, or an aggressive appetite, or even a growing tumor that was causing this, no one really knew what was going on.
And when Mr. Robert Earl Hughes reached the age of 32, he maxed-out his incredible weight and fat problem to a whopping 1069 pounds. So along with his eating habits that were comparable to that of Giants, he did what he could to enjoy life by joining the traveling carnival, so he could make a living. And the spectators that would come to see this great man with this overweight problem, they would be shocked beyond their eyes and their dreams. Since it was very hard for them to even believe that a human being as well as a human body can enlarge to such gargantuan size. Because his chest carried a width of 124 inches, while the chest size of most grown men is at 44 inches, so Mr Hughes' was about 3 times the normal size. As well, his waist size was an astounding 126 inches, while once again, most grown men waist size usually stands at 34-36 inches, and so Mr. Hughes' waist was about 5 times the normal size of a man..
And as much as this great gentleman satisfied the curiosity or the carnival attendees, as well as contribute to Science's new way of understanding overweight issues and fat storage of a human, I am afraid to tell you that Mr. Robert Earl Hughes' Body had reached its limit. For he came down with the Measles at the beginning of July 1958, and the local Hospital officials try to admit him to help heal him, but he could not fit through the Hospital doors. Since the width of his body was too wide, and on top of that, the Hospital beds could not handle his weight. So since he lived in a custom fitted house trailer, they decided to bring that trailer to the Hospital's parking lot and park it there, then the Doctors and Nurses would go out to him to help him. And help they did, and Mr. Hughes miraculously recovered from the Measles, but soon after, his giant body suffered from Uremia, which is a failure of the kidneys, and sadly he lost his life on July 10, 1958 at the age of 32.
So the great Mr. Robert Earl Hughes left this world at a very young age, and took from us his laughter and unselfishness. And at his funeral, they could not use a coffin that could fit his great body, so they used a Piano Case to take him to his final resting place. And between the case and Mr Hughes' body, the total weight came to almost 2000 pounds, and they had to use a Crane to lower him into the ground. So how have you struggled with being overweight, as well as trying to get rid of fat? By James Dazouloute
