An Arizona man who threw out all his food and committed himself to walking to the localWalmart and back every time he wanted a meal has lost more than 300 pounds.
Pasquale “Pat” Brocco, 31, began to change his life three years ago when he was warned by his doctor that his weight of 605 pounds and his high blood pressure and high cholesterol put his life in serious danger.
The Avondale man decided that every time he was hungry, he would walk the 1 mile to his closest Walmart, then back home to eat his meal. In less than two years, he said, he lost 200 pounds.
A few people have asked about how @dust2dust34 and I envision Ellie in FiCoN and - thanks to a lot of searching by @academyofshipping and some by myself - we have models we use as a reference point or inspiration for Ellie as well as the other future Queen kids and a few other noteworthy characters. I thought I’d share beneath the cut…
Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan managed to fight through Jim Crow and all it’s dehumanizing terrorism to make some of NASA’s most famous projects possible. How inspiring!

Federal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

Farooqui and his two alleged victims were hospitalized after the attack. Their conditions were not clear.
