A health scare gave Andrew Goldblatt the shock he needed to lose 220 pounds and find a love of weight-lifting.

When 25-year-old Andrew Goldblatt had a seizure but was unable to be taken to the hospital because of his size (he weighed 245kg), he realized he needed to make a change.

Now, 6-foot-5-inch Goldblatt has lost 220 pounds. “It’s an amazing feeling literally becoming a new man, a new person — just with hard work and determination,” he said.
