Mario spent 20 years making a living and raising a family, and it finally caught up with him. He realized things needed to change when he had to undergo back and hip surgery. Shortly after surgery, he started walking down the street—first half a block, then a whole block and finally the gym. Mario eventually lost 81.75 pounds with TOPS to meet his goal weight and become the TOPS Manitoba King, meaning that he lost more weight to goal than any other man in the province.
