Fifty-seven-year-old Roger Logan had been growing an abnormally large abdomen for the last 15 years that caused him to spend his days sitting with his stomach on the floor. Logan knew something strange was happening, but every time he went to the doctor they told him he was "just fat."
“They said it’s just fat, you’re just fat … it’s just fat developing there.”
“From here up I was a normal person,” Logan explained to ABC23. “I used to say ‘Put a strap around you and (carry) three bags of cement around you all day long, just swinging.'”
Some people don't want to admit when they have gained weight, but Logan was so sure this wasn't a case of too many cookies that he ended up researching his symptoms on his own.
He was eventually taken seriously by Dr. Vipul Dev, who agreed to perform surgery on him at Memorial Hospital in Bakersfield, California.
They discovered that Logan's "cement bag" was actually a 130 lb. benign tumor, and were able to safely remove the whole thing.
And just like that, the weight of a small adult was off of him. Logan and his doctor really should have considered booking him on The Biggest Loser first, it definitely wouldn't be the least crazy way someone's lost weight on that show.
