A perversely obese couple who got together 11 years ago has finally been able to have sex for the first time after shedding almost have of their body weight proceeding a surgery.
Lee Sutton and Rena Kiser weighed a combined 90 stone at their heaviest but has been able to manage to shed nearly half their body weight after both had surgery.
Their journey was documented on American TV show My 600lb Life, with the programme revealing they met at a weight loss clinic 11 years ago.
In the years since their weight spiraled out of control but they finally took action, with Lee dropping from 51 stone down to 29 stone, and Rena going from 39 stone to 20 stone.
Lee said: ‘We never had intercourse before but we can now!’
The couple from Missouri started dating after meeting at the clinic but chose to check themselves out rather than break up when they were told dating broke the rules of the practice.
After a consultation with Dr. Younan Nowzaradan in Houston, Texas, the pair began dropping weight, and after two months Lee was approved for a gastric bypass.
But afterward he returned to his old eating habits, and the couple even had violent clashes.
Rena threatened to leave Lee as the couple underwent therapy for domestic abuse, where Lee promised not to resort to violence.
She then had her surgery, and after a year the couple weighed 49 stone between them – down from 90 stone.
