Before Fame

A Greene County man is gaining national recognition for his pound weight loss. Shifflett says it all started at a friend's house when his friend was weighing himself. Shifflett realized it had been a while since he last stepped on the scale.

It was at that moment he knew he needed to make a change. Shifflett was thinking he was within the ballpark of pounds but the scale told him the truth. At 17 years old, Shifflett says he weighed pounds. From that low point, Shifflett came out on top and pounds lighter. Shifflett admits he has faced some harsh realities from the sudden weight loss. After dropping plus pounds, he was disappointed that much of the extra skin remained.

That's what happens when you lose such a big amount of weight in such a short amount of time," Shifflett said. Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 2: Daniel Suter officiating, assisted by the Rev.
