Today. I really needed some inspiration. I have been feeling down lately with lots of "stuff" going on and I have been reverting to my old habits of binge eating. Thanks for the "pep" talk. Lovely song btw, where is it from?

This is a pretty amazing story Ben. It really hit home for me on a bunch of different levels; especially the Marathon & Ironman parts -- Those are my goals too. I started my journey at 381 pounds, lost 110, and gained another 50 back. I'm working it back off however, and my ultimate goal is to get to 190, exactly half of what I used to weigh.

I've had lots of bad days, days where I had no inspiration or drive what so ever, but this video is going to be my reminder that I'm not the only person who's ever done this, and I'm not going to be the last person who ever will do it. Thanks for posting it, and good luck on your continued adventures in life!

I'm ready to be this guy's biggest cheerleader! I too am a runner who has struggled with trying to lose a lot of weight on and off for years. Currently, I am in an "on" period and just bought a new pair of shoes...ready to hit the ground running...but struggling with motivation. This wonderful video, song, and website was just what I needed. Thank you Ben! You are truly an inspiration to all of us!

WOW!! You really have a wonderful spirit. If your journey doesn't motivate us, i'm not sure what will! I hit goal a few months ago. I never thought I'd see the day. I still never came close to a journey such as yours! I'm proud of you Ben!
