    Most have heard about his story....how he worked with Chris Powell to lose over 400 pounds.. had skin surgery, teeth replacement.. he looked great.
    Unfortunately he gained most of it back recently. He was intereviewed on the "Today Show"... it was really sad,, but he's trying to come back... just shows
    life is indeed a trek of "peaks and valleys".

    Go get em David!

    The pressure he's putting on his heart will kill him before his obesity does. I wonder what he inhales more, food or oxygen?

    That's terrible. He was actually handsome when he lost all the weight. What could make him want to go back to his old ways?

    I really believe some of the research that suggests food can be like a drug for some people.

    I think it was Oprah I was watching when someone said, Imagine if an alcoholic had to have 1 drink 3 times a day but stop there. How long would they last? Maybe thats his case which is really unfortunate.
