Jon Vidler’s life has not been easy an easy one. From being bullied in school to using food as a coping mechanism. It got to the point that Vidler was so overweight that he was scared for his own life. Luckily for him at some point, he decided to make a change in order to improve his life.
At his heaviest, Jon weighed in at 33st 12lbs, which caused him to experience severe panic attacks that doctors even believed were actually heart attacks.
It all started when Jon Vidler was a young schoolboy. The bullying he suffered at school led him to go home and comfort himself with ‘spoonful after spoonful of brown sugar,' just because for a few moments it would make him feel better.
‘As I grew older and earned my own money, I just ate whatever and whenever I wanted. This was mostly in secret, but it must have been obvious because my size was increasing quite dramatically by that point,’ revealed Jon.
Despite all this, Vidler became aware of his problem over time and with the help of lots of people including his mother, doctors and even himself, he managed to reverse the situation and lose 20st 7 lbs. Impressive!
