One morning my new friend, John “Tiny” Likely, had his mouth wide open ready to bite into a big juicy McDonald’s sausage, egg and cheese biscuit. He was in a moment of crisis during his 336 pound weight loss journey to his current weight of 239 pounds.
He stopped himself from eating the biscuit and threw it in the trash. There was no way he was going to disappoint his six year old friend, Chloe, who suffers from a condition of frequent seizures. Chloe is one of Tiny’s biggest supporters, and a huge source of inspiration. Tiny figured that if Chloe can suffer through her pain with a smile on her face, he could avoid a little temptation.
Chloe is just one of hundreds of people in Andalusia, Alabama offering support and encouragement to Tiny every single day. Tiny is strong and amazing, but he knows it would not have been possible to lose the equivalent weight of a Welsh pony without the support, love and encouragement of the entire town.
Among Tiny’s biggest supporters are the customers and co-workers at Zaxby’s and his 19 brothers and sisters who all live in Andalusia and the surrounding areas.
If you are a family member, friend or acquaintance of anyone that has 50, 100 or 350 pounds to lose like Tiny, be sure to offer your love and support every day. Like Chloe, you might save someone’s life.
Please visit Tiny’s website and offer your support and encouragement. I am sure it will mean a lot to him.
