    Omg... That almost made me cry. I can't even express how much I admire people who are able to catch themselves up when they are down like that.... RESPECT to everybody who does such a big journey!!!!!! - 3/11/2013 7:56:45 PM
  • OMG!! So inspiring!

    I've always been a "healthy" weight. I am here to change some habits and make my dreams happen- running a marathon would be awesome; but I'd always believe it was impossible with my problems. This video has changed that. Thank you Ben for being an inspiration - 3/11/2013 6:58:29 PM
