Here are 10 things that happened to me as a fat guy

1. The chair stuck to my rear end when I interviewed with this company in 1998.
2. Two five year old boys called me Fat Albert at a Dunkin’ Donuts counter.
3. My daughter Abbey told me I needed a bra.
4. While swimming with my kids at a pool, another kid told me I was really fat.
5. I couldn’t sit in my seat at the Bruins game and had to sit in a folding chair.
6. Couldn’t fit into the racing suit at F1 Racing in Braintree.
7. The scale at the doctor’s office didn’t go high enough and they had to estimate my weight.
8. My sister in law made me sit in a different chair than the rest of the family at dinner.
9. My daughters told me I looked like Patrick the fat starfish on Sponge Bob Square Pants.
10. I’ve had to ask to be moved from a booth to a table in a restaurant because I didn’t fit.

As Homer Simpson once said, "It's funny 'cause it's true." I'm glad your "truth" has changed, all in the name of better health for you and your loved ones. You are an inspiration, Hank, going far beyond just talking about losing weight. This is more an example of focused determination, which can be applied to all facets of life.
