With Diet, Exercise and Friendship, Man Loses 400 Pounds
January 10, 2008
Four and half years ago, David Smith weighed more than 630 pounds. But over a 26 months period, Smith lost a remarkable 401 pounds.
In June of 2003, Smith sent an e-mail to Chris Powell, a fitness correspondent for a local news broadcast called Good Morning Arizona. The two began working together on a weight loss plan, and eventually became close friends.
The more than two-year saga of Smith’s achievements is an incredible story of friendship, willpower, and overcoming the past.
