A super-slimmer from Tamworth has lost 19 stone in just 18 months.
Alan Oates weighed 33 stone 7lbs, had a 68-inch waist and needed oxygen 15 hours a day.
Alan, aged 55, started piling on weight after leaving the army in 1988 and began driving lorries.
He said a picture of him balancing a laptop on his belly made him realise how big he was getting.
Alan now weighs 14 stone 4lbs after joining Slimming World in January 2012.
