Shaeri lost 700 lbs. after being airlifted out of his Saudi Arabian home in August 2013 on the orders of the late King Abdullah, who financed his medical treatment. Topping out at 1,345 lbs., he hadn’t left his bed for three years, according to CNN.
In this video, Shaeri, who is estimated to be in his early 20s, is seen moving with the help of a walker.
Shaeri and his doctors hope that he’ll continue to lose weight on their intensive fitness plan. Dr. Aaied al-Qahtani, the head of Shaeri’s medical team, told Sayidaty magazine in 2014 that since starting the weight loss journey, Shaeri has improved heart and lung function, muscle strength, and reduced inflammation.

It’s all a huge change from three years ago, when Shaeri was cut out of his home and removed using a special forklift brought in from the United States to get to the hospital.
