This is in memory of Mike Hebranko, who has struggled all his life with obesity and addiction to food, and last week lost his battle.
I first heard of him in a book of stories about weight loss by Richard Simmons.
He went from 1000 pounds to about 250, with his help, but soon gained it back.
I don't condemn him at all. It's tough, having a food addiction. I know. I struggle with it even now. It's SO easy to gain it all back.
It's why I have to keep on myself all the time.
I have to remind myself constantly, when tempted to go back to my old habits and foods, is it worth it? Worth dying for?
I'm doing this for him. He said how hard it is, and if you suffer from the disease of obesity, get help. I'm taking his advice to heart.
Mike, I will always remember you like this, in this Richard Simmons video:
While I am on the web or off, you're in my thougths, Mike!
Mike, this is for you!
