Jacob Miller is someone who has struggled with his weight for the majority of his life. When he was just 15 years old, he weighed a whopping 707 pounds. Of course, being that heavy at such a young age is terribly dangerous for your health.
When the situation began to affect his day-to-day life, Jacob knew that he had to do something about it. The realization that he was unwell was enough to kick him into gear.
There were many different things that contributed to his weight gain and obesity. It was not just an unhealthy, inactive lifestyle but a dietary issue too.
It was clear that his obesity could cause problems with his organs and even do some damage to his heart too. Something had to be done.
When he was just a baby, he actually struggled a whole lot with his weight too. He had a few biological disorders, which meant that he gained weight at a fast, fast speed.
What’s more, as he grew, he developed an unhealthy eating problem, which meant that the weight just kept on increasing and increasing.
Even when he was just a child, it was quite obvious that he was an unhealthy weight. His family worried for him but it seemed that there was nothing they could do.
By the time he was a teenager, the problem had gotten so very bad that he needed to get help. He actually had diabetes! It was in these years, that he started to take action.
Jacob decided that it was time to have surgery. The operation along with an exercise and dietary routine would help him get rid of the weight and keep it off for good. Of course, the solution was not easy – it meant that he had to work hard and have a whole load of determination.
Here’s how Jacob looks now:
