A Detroit-area couple who met in a support group for weight loss surgery patients has gotten married after losing a collective 380 pounds.
The Detroit Free Press reports that 34-year-old Crysta Danaher, of Windsor, and 44-year-old Bill Anderson, of Allen Park, were married Saturday at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital, where they had bariatric surgery and later met. Anderson has gone from 459 pounds to about 250 pounds since his May 2009 operation. Danaher has lost about 180 pounds since her 2009 procedure.
Anderson says the surgery and support group have "changed everything" about his life. He has run two full marathons and more than a dozen half-marathons.
They were married by their yoga instructor in the room where they met.
