What started as one teacher's plan to help a student lose weight has turned into a school-wide healthy-living effort in Franklin, Ind.
After suffering the death of his father and a long hospital stay, 14-year-old Eric Ekis entered Franklin Community High School School standing 6'4" and weighing 510 pounds. His size made him a target for bullies and isolated him, socially and mentally, from his peers.
When teacher Don Wettrick approached Ekis about exercising together, the embarrassed teen turned him down. So Wettrick asked a second time, a few days later. Eric turned him down again. At the end of September, Wettrick approached Ekis a third time, but this time, he didn't come to Ekis with a mission. Instead, he just asked the boy if anything was wrong.
The answer: His grief had turned to depression. Ever since his father's death, he'd given up. He wanted help, but didn't know how to ask.
So Wettrick went to work. With the help of popular senior Kevin Stahl, who takes his independent study Innovations class, the teacher organized an effort to help Eric get healthy. They started simple, with a light walking regimen, and then threw in more intense activities like yoga and basketball.

When Lee Jordan met up with his high school girlfriend, Beth Schwein, at a Starbucks in Herndon, Va., after more than 20 years apart, he was nervous.
He hadn't just lost some hair and gained a little weight – he was bald and he weighed 450 lbs.
He could only imagine what her reaction would be when she saw how much he'd changed from the 165-lb. boy with a full head of hair she'd fallen in love with.
"People look at you with sadness. Horror. Pity," Jordan, now 50, tells PEOPLE. "And this was the love of my life. I couldn't stomach her looking at me that way."
