Some people need the inspiration to get up and burn some fat, some others themselves become the inspiration. And here is the inspiring story of one such guy named James who went from being over 661 lbs to half of it in a weight loss show! When his show aired on TV, James said to a crowd that included his family and friends, "I'm glad I'm able to share this story with the world, 'cause I remember how lost I felt when I was over 700 pounds. And just knowing that maybe somebody out there is going to have some form of inspiration from what I was able to accomplish."
