Next time you don't think it's possible to get in shape, remember this kid. There's a 17-year-old boy from Canton, Ohio namedMichael Watsonwho's graduating from high school this month. Like other high school kids, he's been overweight most of his life. At one point, he was 325 pounds.
However, about a year ago, he decided to do something about it. So he overhauled his diet, which included no more pizza every day and simply started a routine of walking several miles to school every morning. Even if it was snowing, he still walked. That's how determined he was.
Well, his high school decided to give him a shout-out on Facebook because he's lost a total of 115 pounds since making that decision. He looks like a different person. He says the secret is you really have to want it. And taking a real look at his relationship with food was hard, but worth it.
