With all the sad news coming from the deep South, I lost sight of the story of Steve Vaught - a heavy man walking across America to lose weight. This is a nice story.
I found his website looking for some news about his journey. He says he is now 340 pounds and he's posted pictures from Arizona and New Mexico. That's pretty good. When he started his walk he weighed 400 lbs. He started walking in April so I think he's losing at a steady pace - not too fast and not too slow, he'll have permanent weight loss.
As of Sept. 5, 2005 he is in Tucamari, New Mexico according to the map on his site. His goal is New York City. Let's wish him continued good fortune and strength as he perseveres.
