When I read this story about a teen that overcomes obesity, it brought tears to my eyes. I have great admiration and respect for this young man. “It’s really easy to change your eating habits” he says. I was a middle-aged adult before I could do what he did at age 17.

A Teen Overcomes Obesity
How one teen lost weight (and gained confidence) through nutrition, exercise, and persistence from WebMD November 9, 2010.
I started gaining weight when I was about 11. I just wasn’t very active. I would come home from school every day and watch TV. And my diet wasn’t good: Most of the time we ate frozen, packaged foods and a lot of sweets. It was just more convenient for us.
By the end of my freshman year in high school, I weighed close to 250 pounds and I was only 5 feet 8 inches tall. I decided I needed to lose weight when I was 15. I was wearing pants that had a 36-inch waist and 30-inch length, but even they were so tight they were uncomfortable. Plus, I knew that there was diabetes on both sides of my family.
I decided to join my school’s dragon boat team. It was more exercise than I had ever gotten in my life. I started feeling strong and healthy. By my sophomore year, I was down to 200 pounds. At that point, I joined the swim team, too. My life was changing in a really good way.
I started reading articles in sports magazines about how it’s important to eat well, so I changed my diet, too. I stopped eating packaged foods.
The rest of my family hasn’t changed how they eat, but lots of times I come home after they’ve already had dinner, so I make my own meals. Sometimes my grandmother complains about how I’m eating differently — she thinks I have an eating disorder! — but they are impressed that I’ve lost so much weight.
Today I’m 17, 6 feet 1 inch tall, and I weigh 185 pounds. I feel good. If I had to tell other obese teens one thing, it’s this: It’s really easy to change your eating habits. Teens get hooked on candy and soda, but it’s just as easy to drink mineral water instead. Don’t get it in your head that you can’t fix it. You can. Sooner or later you’ll end up losing the weight. Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can.
If you know who this young man is, please ask him to either comment on this blog post or send me an email. I would love to hear more about his story and how he is keeping the weight off. I wish him well!
