Really not trying to toot my own horn, but t2 years ago I turned out to be the only match for a buddy who needed a kidney transplant (genetic thing, not lifestyle related). The problem was that I was 30lbs too heavy. They are EXTREMELY strict on donor health. So, I started running a little and then a lot more and dropped the weight in time.
After the recovery, I decided I didn't want my weight to ever be a contributing factor to my health again. Me and my buddy both committed to changing our lifestyles and its been great ever since.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
