Good for him! I applaud healthy lifestyle decisions and all kidding aside, I do feel sympathy for people that get that obese. With the prices of food going through the roof and the preponderance of processed food, chemicals antibiotics/steroids/high fructose corn syrup found in food, and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle it's not surprising how it happens.
I myself had gone from being pretty athletic in my 20's with 12 percent bodyfat on my frame, to being pretty overweight in my early 30's (268 on a 6'3" frame.) Too much beer, saturated fats, and stress contributed to poor lifestyle decisions.
Recently dropped 35 pounds over the course of 3 months. I feel like a completely different person.
