Over the years, Tony Bussey of Alberta, Canada, has gained so much weight, that he took up 2 plane seats when being evacuated from the flames and terror that was the Fort McMurray Wildfire. This shameful experience pushed the 567-pound dad to promise himself he’d lose weight, and holy smokes did he deliver.
In 2016, Tony Bussey found himself by the Fort McMurray Wildfire which forced the biggest evacuation in Alberta’s history – over 88,000 people had to leave home
The rescue team had to provide Tony two seats in order to take him to safety, and it was his breaking point
At the time, Bussey was so obese, he struggled to put on his socks, not to mention his size-66 pants
“I kept thinking, ‘Here it is: somebody’s wife, somebody’s husband, somebody’s family member is waiting and their loved ones have to wait longer now because I’m too fat to sit next to'”
Soon after, he started walking and gradually increasing the length of his exercises – from five to ten minutes, and so on
