1. Inspiring story about more than just losing weight.

    Fat people, overweight people, the morbidly obese—it’s the last acceptable group to make fun of. Throughout media, the heavy guy is the funny guy, the easy laugh … [and] when you’re overweight, you see that as your role.

    Fame, wealth, even a good family life couldn’t turn the tide. Often, the demons are in our heads, not in our circumstances.

    Which is just another reason why I’m so proud of my buddy Patrick. He’s killed it this last year and has never looked better. Way to go!
