The ride was only moderately successful No verified weight loss could be documented. Shenanigans abounded.

Moderators hit the kill switch on discussion due to fat shaming, despite the fact he brings a lot of it on himself by being so dodgy. There's something about being a fat guy that those of us that have battled weight can identify with. But unfortunately, he uses it as both a sword and shield and seems not to want to really do anything about it.

So some years have passed, and he is trying to capture lightning in a bottle again, going back to the well of fellow morbidly obese supporters and other good natured people
