At his heaviest, John Allaire was over 540 pounds at only 27 years old. Depression was getting the better of him, and he thought it was pointless to try and change. Then he got engaged to the love of his life, Caila, and he knew it was time to change. A year later and John has lost almost 300 pounds and had surgery to remove his excess skin. He feels like a new man and inspires others to change their lives for the better as well.
