Man Loses 198 Lbs In Just One Year

Like clockwork, when those New Year’s fireworks light up the skies across the world, many of us make promises to ourselves. Most of the time, it’s to lose weight, promising that we will do what it takes to drop the pounds and get healthier. True to our word, a majority of us will take up gym memberships but give it up after just a few weeks or a couple of months. However, a few are able to stick it out and attain their weight goal. The Ellis County ADA, Vance Hinds, is one of them and the story of how he’s managed to drop the pounds in just a year is simply incredible.

Tipping The Scales At Morbidly Obese

In November 2017, Vince Hinds, the Ellis County Assistant District Attorney, stood on his bathroom scale to weigh himself. He knew full well that he hadn’t been taking good care of his health, but he wasn’t quite ready to equate his weight to a set of digits. It read “475 lbs!” and Vince was greatly surprised, to say the least. According to 2015 to 2016 statistics collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 93.3 million American adults are obese. That accounted for about 40% of the population! When you include the number of obese children, it comes to an astonishing 60%!

How would Hinds process his weight verdict?
