I had to deal with a problem that many Americans face: obesity. And that's why I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to be on a television show. Now I have a platform to show people that if an average, everyday guy from Kentucky can commit to a lifestyle change, anyone can do it.
When I saw photos from that evening, I had an epiphany. I had let myself go, and nothing could hide it. It was subtle at first, but the years seemed to get away from me, along with my increasing waistline.
