Former world’s fattest man finds love online after shedding 304kg


WHEN Paul Mason was at his heaviest, a normal breakfast would include a packet of bacon, four sausages, four eggs, bread and hash browns.
It’s easy to see how the morbidly obese man was clocking 20,000 calories a day and eating his way to an early grave. He once weighed 440kg and was the world’s fattest man.

But 304kg lighter after an operation to shed the weight, Paul has found love. And he has a BBC documentary to thank for it, the Daily Mail reports.
American woman Rebecca Mountain saw Paul on TV, in a documentary about his plight in seeking a second operation (this time for excess skin removal) and got in touch over Facebook.

Romance bloomed and Paul says Rebecca is the love of his life.
“I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together,” the former postman from Suffolk, in England, said.
“I can’t think about anyone else and nor can she.”

The blossoming romance is a fitting bookend to Paul’s tragic journey to obese hell and back. He says he started gaining weight after his heart was broken by a former flame.

Rebecca reached out to Paul initially to help him in his plight to get a skin-removal operation.
“She didn’t really think anything romantically to start with, she just wanted to help me find someone who will operate,” Paul said.

“I was a bit cautious to start with but as soon as I met her on Skype I felt at ease. We talked for four-and-a-half hours.”
The couple lives in different countries, but Paul hopes Rebecca will visit him in the UK soon.
