Really? Hmm. Makes me think I should pack on a bunch of weight just so I can shed it and be another inspiring story.
As already mentioned, NickNaylor used it pretty well. I get this feeling that in our society, a fat person losing a lot of weight is really commendable while a skinny guy putting on a lot of muscle, isn't really, even though I think the latter is harder (yes, I'm biased)
