    One of my favorite comedians, Gabriel Iglesias was recently in the hospital. He posted a status on his Facebook with this: https://www.facebook.com/GabrielIglesias

    One thing about this health scare is that since he stated he has to lose weight, I'm assuming it's causing him some problems that weren't listed in the public. That's a somewhat of a bad thing because the scare could have been anything. High blood pressure? A diabetes scary? Not sure, but I wish him well.
    Something tells me that he's obesed, so now the doctors are telling him to start getting more exercise, and eat less fatty foods - especially the one thing he loves to eat, which is cake.

    This is the picture he posted of him in the hospital:

    But, in all honestly, I'm happy to hear that he's going to start losing weight.

    And, I don't think he'll lose any of his fans because he's on the verge of losing weight. He's still a funny guy.

    And he's known as the "Fluffy" guy, he still can be right?

    Ya, same thing happened to Rick Ross and others. It's a good thing he needs to lose weight. I don't know how much he weighs, but I think over 300 pounds or so?

    I googled because I had no idea who he was and it said 350lbs. That's insane, that's more than my cousin and I together with my dog and cat...

    I was recently at 350 pounds. Once he starts eating right and getting some exercise in, it won't be hard for him to drop it. The first 40-60 pounds tends to be the easiest to drop. At least, that's what I've experienced.

    It's a good thing you've lost all that weight, being extremely overweight is really unhealthy. :(

    Yup, it really is. Because an heart attack can happen more often than not when you're really overweight. Not to mention how you can get sick more and all that. It's tough, but I'm sure he can do it. How much do you weigh? Have you always had good health in terms of not being overweight?
