Crushing weight: Jacob's story

Jacob Miller has fought obesity almost all of his life. He was born five weeks prematurely, but if he had been carried to term, he would’ve been delivered at 12 lbs.

When he was one years old, he weighed 52 lbs. At 15, he stood 6-foot-5 and weighed his heaviest, 707 lbs. By the time he was a teenager, he was gaining 100 pounds a year. His weight was killing him, literally. There wasn’t much health professionals could do if Jacob hadn’t tried to help himself first. That’s when he realized it was time he did something about it.
