He needed to change soon

And Miller soon realized that he needed to start losing weight before these conditions ended up killing him, so he looked for help at the Cincinnati Cildren's Hospital Medical Center. Miller was provided a reasonable weight loss plan and a timeline to reach his goals.

Diet and Surgery

And by sticking to the diet that the doctors prescribed for him, he was able to lose 77 lbs, enough weight to make it possible for him to undergo a gastric bypass surgery. Just 6 months after having the surgery done, he looks like a completely different person!
