Yes, it's me. And yes, I did donate to charity to win the article. But I think it's a good take on the clyde story that many of you know so well yourselves.

Very nice. But next time contact me first. I'll do a press release for free, since your story needs to get out to people.

Awesome read. I like the fact that you're not looking for support or publicity for your accomplishments. Rather you are looking for donations to help fight a battle that effects a lot of peoples lives. Good work.

Its good to be proud of physical accomplishments like losing over 130 lbs. Stories like yours should be shouted from the rooftops.

Good job!
