Wonderful role model for those children with diabetes. Should give them hope at what they can achieve. Natural body building looks good. Report
This is an amazing story. It is also very inspiring! Report
Inspirational, for sure. Go Doug! I too want to train to lift weights, yet in the past, when l'm doing well, then something happens. Either l go too far or start to ache. But l'm not giving up. This year l'm getting fit. Next year, start to train. Report

Wow! What a great story of overcoming hard obstacles in one's life. He gained all this naturally too. More high school sports players need to realize that hard work can really pay off and that they don't have to settle for a quick, unhealthy fix! Terrific!!! Report
