They were on Good Morning America yesterday morning. She's not overweight. Yay for him. I'm happy he was able to lose the weight.

Good for him. He resisted the burgers and fries by eating salads and apple slices.
Now comes the real test. Can he keep the weight off? I sure hope so. I'm rooting for him.

I think the reason why he lost so much weight was because most people use the bathroom after eating Mcdonald's personaly i like BK better =)

I must confess. I fell off the wagon when they gave away those free chicken sandwiches and biscuits. I'm back up to 280.

I bet his wallet is a lot lighter too. Who buys salads and apples at McD's? Go to the grocery store and do it yourself.

MrBryan...my point exactly.

Apple slices without caramel sauce = apple slices

Is McDonald's more convenient than buying a bag of apples and slicing them at home? In fact, eating them whole yields the same results...go figure.

Salad, too.

Uplifting story, I guess...assuming his organs aren't shot from eating their garbage. Nevertheless, the story still emphasizes how Americans are losing their "food education" and most people are not as lucky as this guy. The obesity rates speak for themselves.

185 at 5 feet 8 inches is still a fat person. I am 6 feed 3 and I weigh 185. You need to keep losing weight.

I admit I can't wear the suit I got married in but when you can't get in to your wedding ring some one needs to gag you for a couple of weeks.
