Ran across this interesting article today .. What a story .. Sidiebie has been on (and off) diets since the age of SIX ... Also suffered from Bulimia .. She made the decision a couple of years or so ago to have V.S.G., as well as wrote her autobio.

Just got notice of this brand new med supposedly for weight loss. First time I'm seen an injectable form of weight loss drug, too (it comes in a "pen", similar to insulin for diabetics) .. Looks like this one works on the body's "hunger hormone" leve

Wow. This is a really sad story. Lorenzen, despite his unusual size for a quarterback (260 or so lbs.), had a record-setting career in college football and later went on to play for a couple of NFL teams. After time, his weight started going higher

Wow .. this is stunning and so tragic .. To lose all that weight only to then commit suicide .. He mentioned "confronting demons" in his last FB post, so I guess it was something other than his weight at issue ..
