This Man was Inspired to Lose 145 lbs in Order to Ride a Ride at Universal Studios
A guy named Nigel Johnson was told that he exceeded the weight limit for the Incredible Hulk coaster at Universal Studios in Florida. Obviously this is a huge dig at one's self self esteem but he decided to take this and use it as motivation to shed the amount of poundage needed for him to be able to ride the coaster!
He started doing wii fit in his living room for a half hour a day and just jogging in place in his home because he lacked the confidence to work out in public. As he saw results he gained confidence and decided to join a gym and get a personal trainer.
He was able to go back to to that very theme park a few years later and ride the Incredible Hulk Coaster that he was denied years before. You go, Nigel!
