This is fairly tough to watch, but at the same time it’s hard to look away. David Smith, who inspired a nation by dropping 400 pounds, has gained more than 250 of them back.
Long ago, Smith was the focus of TLC documentary titled “The 650-Pound Virgin.” That, of course, is not what you want your life’s angle to be. So he got to work, ended up losing an incredible amount of weight, and, yes, got his first girlfriend.
But things didn’t stay copasetic.
Smith told his story on the “Today Show” this morning, saying that he’s once again determined to get healthy. We wish him all the best.
