    That is phenomenal. The guy should become an icon of the possible. His story should be told to anyone considering gastrobypass surgery.

    I followed the link to his MySpace page and watched the YouTube videos he listed in his blog entry. Wow. I then passed the link along to a friend of mine whose son weighs 700+ lbs.

    Wow, that's great. Congrats to that man.

    And refreshing to see a guy who's so big, lose weight without having a stomach bypass, by exercise and health eating.

    See you lazy porkers it can be done.

    Get off ya fat arse and exercise.

    Thank heavens he turned his life around. Any one watch the biggest loser. Almost the same but they dont do surgery. All diet and exercise. That show inspired me to start turning my life around.

    I couldn't get to RJ from work, and I shared this story verbally with a couple of coworkers. I Googled, and found another site, so I sent them the link (http://www.vincentchow.net/1324/david-smith-successful-weight-loss).

    Here's what I don't get. The straight guys were all grossed out, one even said he felt physically ill. The women and the other gay guy were all looking at it saying "Wow, I didn't know skin could recover to the extent that it did, how neat is that?" and "That's just amazing, I can't imagine what it must be like to be him and have gone through all that, what a great story."

    So why were the straight guys all such wimps about it?

    because it shows them the answer is simple and it gives them no excuses thats the reason

    what is so sad I find though is that yes it took him 2 years but if he hadnt gone onto a foodless diet almost his stomach and skin would have adapted better naturaly I doubt he could have avoided all surgery but he could have avoided a fair amount of the scars and the loose skin.
