true. I watched a show, i think on TLC (there goes my man-card), which centered around a young man that weighed over 650lbs. He lost over 400 pounds using exercise
and a healthy diet
. He considered using surgery, but decided to do it on his own. A local trainer that worked a newspaper company helped him along the way. I was pretty amazed at his will power and work ethic. Makes me want to lose those "meager" 10lbs I put on during college.
