What inspired me to read about this overweight boy is that that I had seen a special Biggest Loser episode. In this episode featured a young man entering his 20's.

He accepted almost any kind of treament just to be acknowledge and went right along with the bad examples of his peers, treating women with less respect than they deserve and so on...
