The 38-year-old James Bedard was initially more determined than ever to go through with Dr. Now’s plans, which intended to see him lose 80 pounds within two months. However, within three months of starting the program, Bedard’s father suddenly died due to heart complications. The loss hung heavy on the Bedard family and he chose to take time away from his rigorous exercise and diet regime to care for his mother. Dr. Now initially allowed Bedard to take some time, hoping that he could at least lose 75 pounds within the month. However, even after this, he found it difficult, after which Dr. Now pushed him even further, with serious worries about Bedard’s health coming to the forefront. He went on to lose only 20 pounds within his given time, which he was proud of despite Dr. Now’s concerns.
Over the course of a year, Bedard would lose an astounding 119 pounds, making him eligible for weight loss surgery. At the moment, there is no confirmation if he has gone through and gotten the surgery as he has no social media presence. Along with this, he did not relocate to Houston, Texas (via) as many of the show’s past participants have done, as this is where Dr. Now operates.
Hopefully, we will hear an update from this determined individual and see where his hard work and perseverance have taken him.
