Couple to wed after losing nearly 600 pounds together

By  | 

A New York couple is tying the knot after meeting at a gym where they worked out on their way to losing nearly 600 pounds together.
Ronnie Brower weighed 675 pounds and could barely leave his parents' house four years ago. He was addicted to drugs, alcohol and food. When a doctor told him he'd be dead in two years, Brower decided to get in shape.
With the help of personal trainer Nick Murphy, Brower followed a low-carbohydrate diet, quit the booze and drugs and worked out. In two years he lost 458 pounds.
Andrea Masella was on her way to losing nearly half of her 250 pounds when she met Brower at the gym.
The two are getting married on Saturday, with Murphy serving as the best man.
