As obese as he was, Mike Harrington never thought he’d see the scale read below 200 lbs. Four decades into his life and weighing nearly a quarter of a ton, he proved himself completely wrong.
As the most obese he’d been in his adult years, Mike was a pre-diabetic plagued with complications ranging from sleep apnea to high blood pressure. However, that was only the tip of the iceberg.
Living a life of misery, the 40-year-old was thrown into a deep depression. After the death of his father, Mike got a little more perspective on the issue and made the decision to turn his life around.
“He had suffered with lung and colon cancers due to his poor health habits. His death left a scar on me and I promised myself that I would learn something from losing him,” the grieving son wrote online.
Doing away with bad eating habits and changing his sedentary lifestyle, the man was able to lose over 200 lbs. in less than a year!
Although Mike’s mother was aware of her son’s incredible journey, she still hadn’t seen his transformation in person … until now.
Laying eyes on her 200 lb. son, the woman was brought to tears of joy. It’s safe to say Mike’s weight loss story was a complete success and a total inspiration.
