Michelle Mohr, 27, of Florida, decided to change and become “super, super strict” about her diet when she decided to lose weight after years of “feeling invisible” in her group of “Plus-sized” friends. Michelle was 5’4″ and 210 pounds. She’s now 110 pounds and has never been more confident.
This is very inspiring and should give everyone hope!

At five foot, six inches, Apotheosis was shorter than the average American male and very unhappy about it.
So he did something other men who feel short might consider unthinkable: he opted for costly, painful surgeries to make himself “grow” a total of six inches.
“I realized that the world looked at me a certain way that I didn’t look at myself in that certain way,” said the 37-year-old New Yorker, who goes by the pseudonym “Apotheosis” in online forums and asked that “20/20″ not use his real name. “I wanted the way I felt about myself and the way the world felt about me to be similar.”
Apotheosis is one of a “growing” number of men pursuing limb-lengthening procedures for cosmetic reasons.

Sleepless Nights 1980
When you stake up late
So alive and awake
thinking at all the lives currently at stake, most likely awake
tossing ,turning, squirming, & learning
Only to be disturbed
awoken by a cloned tone coming from a mobile phone.
Don’t worry you’re not tripping
And you’re not alone, we all are clones
The sound is awfully loud, annoying , you can hear it from the clouds
Happens to be a call to awake & embrace, to start your day and contemplate the next move to make
Are you happy? or Are you Sad. Does it make you mad. Can’t roll out of bed?
Are you inspired to live? Have kids, while we pollute, take heat and grief from evil suits
filled with loot who created plans for you?
So You take a slap back at the sound
drift right back to sleep trying the hold on to that dream, that was so serene
“Uh Oh” The sound happens again, it’s the tone from your evil friend
or a sound from heaven congratulating you for handling another lesson
It can be stressing,in only a matter of seconds defines your dimension and direction
“Oh great?, to go pay for the system” Where we all fall victim, listen to criticism
I don’t want to sleep, i want to learn, i am concerned
about this thing they call earth ever since birth
I grew up smiling everyday
as you getting older, certain people will try to stand in your way
demean you in ways, you cry and walk away
who am i? What did I do wrong? I am strong
So what? I did some wrong.
I want to stay awake
saturate my brain
with stimulating ideas, away from people
that then feed ya, who then no longer need ya
don’t be depressed, the world is a mess
just be blessed
with family and extraordinary friends
that sound in the morning should acknowledge you my friend
it’s not the end, yippee you get to do it again
you go into work, no one bleeps a word. No “Hi” Good Morning” Humans are mourning
everybody in a dream it seems
some very deceiving and miss believing
Just don’t forget about the ones who came before us. Who spread this plethora
Play a video game, sit on it for hours, never take Shower, check your phone because you feel alone, send a text to see if someone gives a shit
It’s good for you kid – © twitter.com//helptheuniverse.com
