A friend led him to Nick Murphy, the owner of Mission Fitness in Syracuse, New York.
“My job 24 hours a day was to get healthy and save my life,”

After losing 100 pounds in 100 days (a pound a day if you like), Ronnie transferred his workouts from home to the gym, and after creating a Facebook page for his fitness journey, that’s where he was discovered by his wife-to-be Andrea.

“I was just really inspired by him and I thought he was super cute,” she said, “We started talking at the gym and I hate to sound clich√© but it was love at first sight.”

Ronnie was well into his weight loss when he met Andrea, who at the time was still on her way to losing 120 pounds.

Naturally, their first date was at the gym. After losing the combined 578 lbs (262 kg), the two went through four excess skin removal surgeries, and now they’re getting married.

“People come to me all the time, asking for weight-loss advice,” he described, “I just tell them there’s hope out there. If you want it bad enough and put your mind to it, anybody can do it.”
