Inspiring story

The giant khakis, size 52, are wider than the average doorway - and they have roughly the same amount of material as a tablecloth.

Once, they fit 25-year-old Neil Tejwani - back when he weighed 460 pounds. At the time, he was too big to squeeze into anything other than a "gas-guzzling monstrosity" of an SUV; too rotund to cram into a seat at Fenway Park; too heavy to climb the rickety ladder into his attic.

"That's a quarter of a metric ton," noted the 6-foot-3-inch, now 210-pound Tejwani, humor and disgust mingled in his voice.

Good to see that in this day in age, when an alarming amount of Americans are obese, some people are taking action to lose weight.
