You won't believe this man's incredible transformation!
Wonderful role model for those children with diabetes. Should give them hope at what they can achieve. Natural body building looks good.
This is an amazing story. It is also very inspiring!
Inspirational, for sure. Go Doug! I too want to train to lift weights, yet in the past, when l'm doing well, then something happens. Either l go too far or start to ache. But l'm not giving up. This year l'm getting fit. Next year, start to train.
I love this story! So inspirational for sure.
Wow! What a great story of overcoming hard obstacles in one's life. He gained all this naturally too. More high school sports players need to realize that hard work can really pay off and that they don't have to settle for a quick, unhealthy fix! Terrific!!!
What an inspiration, thank you for sharing your story.
Thank you for sharing your story. I'm trying better manage my diabetes
Good for you Doug! I wish you'd tell us if you are rid of diabetes.
Great job. Great example of how to stay motivated and not give up.
CONGRATS! GREAT JOB!
I loved his closing statement "...You have the ability to do what you want, if your willing to choose it" excellent motivational video - Thank You!

To achieve that level without steroids and a diabetic since childhood... Very inspiring, a true story of a man conquering almost all obstacle.
