The link below is for the story of David Smith who lost 401 pounds (181 kg). We have posted a news story on him previously entitled “the 650 pound virgin” but I stumbled onto an article david wrote about his experiences. It’s not a long read but a sad yet inspiring story. However more people look at David’s and other major weight loss stories (such as myself) not in sadness but as hope! I can speak about my own experiences but I always say I’m not special or genetically gifted I just have belief in myself and passion to be different. If I could do it than anyone can and I am more than sure that David Smith would tell you the same thing!
