A Portable Lunch

Watched an American show yesterday about a man who weighed 693lbs.  He said "he never thought he would get this big" and I thought, it's true is that, no one ever does.  But eating processed industrial food in industrial sized portions had only one consequence: industrial scale surgery.  And at 693lbs, Chuck Turner from Beaumont Texas, was telling it like it is.  

"When you get to a problem point in life, there are two things to ask: how did I get here and is it too late to change this".  Never too late, he decides and with a weight loss of 425lbs over one year suceeds in making a change."Progress takes time" says Chuck "it doesn't matter how long it takes just as long as you keep going".
