Good News: Man Loses Half His Body Weight With Help From A Friend


Brian Flemming from Michigan was obese, depressed and addicted to alcohol.  He met Englishwoman Jackie Eastham via the drawing game app Draw Something in 2012.  Eastham suffers myotonic muscular dystrophy, a debilitating condition that she manages by living an extremely healthy lifestyle.  With her encouragement, Flemming quit drinking and began eating well and exercising.  In just over a year he has lost 365lb – more than half his body weight.  The pair met in Europe in December 2013 and climbed to the top of the Eiffel Tower together!  What a great story!
