Lucas Irwin decided that he wanted to lose weight, but he didn’t tell anyone – not even his parents. He decided to show them instead, and he did so in person after a year-long effort. The drastic difference left them completely shocked.
It was December 28, 2012, when Irwin made the decision that he was going to lose weight. “It’s something that I have struggled with all my life,” he told Today. At that time in his life, he was 300 pounds.
