    This story reminds me of how powerful one person can be in inspiring someone else. Dr. Peng is obviously a caring and dedicated physician, who found a way to kick-start Jesse’s transformation. His mom deserves credit,too, for her early intervention in taking him to see Dr. Peng at a young age. And finally, Jesse himself, for the discipline and hard work it takes to make a lifelong change. Jesse, you look wonderful and you seem like a very thoughtful and kind young man, who will likely inspire many other young kids and adolescents to become healthier and happier. Congratulations.

    Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring on other websites? I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

    Way to go Jessie! Your story is very inspiring. It’s incredible to hear that at a very young age you made the conscious choice to make the necessary changes in your life for a healthy lifestyle. I know with the support of your mother you were able to make it happen. You look great. Keep up the good work.
