In the Spotlight: James

I haven’t written about any inspirational people lately.  Every so often I love reading articles or watching videos about others who reach goals.

Today, I’d like to highlight a guy named James.  I saw him on one of my favorite shows, My 600 LB Life.  James’ weight spiraled out of control.  At his lowest point he couldn’t walk, and weighed 728 lbs.

James lost 300 lbs in his first year.  After a year and a half he was literally half of his old self.  He qualified for skin surgery, got it, recovered, and got himself a whole new life, including a girlfriend and all.

His attitude was really optimistic, and he always looked forward to when his body and life would change.  It seemed that he had his eyes set on the goal the whole time, and did whatever was necessary to meet it.  At the end of the episode James weighed 290 lb.

Couldn’t find a full body “after “pic.  Regardless, I think we can all learn a thing or two from this non-quitter 🙂
