“Everyone Knows Someone Who Needs This Information! (TM)
No longer needing his diabetes medication, The Biggest Loser’s heaviest-ever contestant, Dan, has shown that he can continue losing weight on his own, after leaving the ranch. Dan weighed in at way over 400 pounds, at 5 foot 8 inches tall, and at only 18 years old.
Both he and David, his team member, are the only overweight people in their family, but the families did not seem, at least anymore, to be making food that would help them, or encouraging change. Maybe they had done this in past years, and become disillusioned that their sons would and could ever change, but I hope they are behind them 1000%, now. Both boys have proven they ARE willing to do what needs to be done to regain their health.
Now, at 19, after about 6 weeks or so with Jillian as his trainer, Dan had lost 60 pounds and then continued to lose another 40+ pounds so far, on his own. Dan hopes to be The Biggest Loser in the show’s history, and as he started out as the heaviest, that’s a possible outcome. It is absolutely wonderful that his body is healing and that he no longer needs his diabetes medication.
It has been heart-warming to see this young man transform his life. He has:
— put aside the mindless, ignorant eating patterns
— learned to cook, as his family didn’t eat the way he needed to
— realized that he CAN do more in life as long as he MOVES.
Knowing he can’t sit on the couch and watch everyone else live their lives, when he doesn’t have one worth living, has impelled Dan (and finally, David) to grab for their star!
Already losing 1/4 of his body, Dan is beginning to look like he’s going to make it, as long as he keeps control, keeps focus and wants all the things that life CAN offer him — a girlfriend, a wife, children, fun, challenges he aims for.
He’s renewing himself, and if he can, we can. He started out with about 300 pounds to lose, after all. Most of us don’t have that challenge.
So, hear it best from Dan himself, and use the video for your own motivation!
Bravo! to all who try. Just try! Do it for yourself. Respect yourself. Learn that only YOU can make the change.
