After having the same surgery this young man had last year on Halloween, I understand the struggles he is going through! So proud of him! Thanks to his parents and grandparents for helping him! We don't realize for some of us, food is an addiction much like drugs and alcohol. The huge difference is drugs and alcohol can be left completely alone and you will be a much healthier person. With food we must learn to live with our addiction. We must look at food like a skinny person does - as fuel for our body! We must NOT look at it as a solution to a problem, that it is going to make us feel better, etc.

Good luck young man, keep on keeping on! I had this surgery when I was 68! You have a lot of time to get healthier and share your story!

Desire, believe, and expectations makes magic. Imagination, attitude and perseverance makes the magic happen. You can have all the faith, but without the whole 9 yards you not going any where. What's the motivation. Live your life for life to have a life to live for.

Zak is an amazing young man. Generous folks enabled him to have the surgery to remove excess skin. He had the plastic surgery recently and is recuperating now.
