Birmingham Man Loses Over 200 Pounds the Hard Way

Robbie Gibbons with JT in WERC studios

Homewood football coach and PE Teacher Robbie Gibbons once tipped the scales at over 400 pounds.  Then as a cast member on ABC TV’s “Castaways” he voluntarily was stranded on a remote island in Indonesia for six weeks. 

His determination paid off.  Not only did he lose the weight, but he beat the other 11 contestants to win the show.  Today, he shared his inspirational story with JT on Alabama's Morning News. 

He tells JT his advice to everyone to motivate themselves to succeed is “find your Why, and if your Why is bigger than your How, your How becomes easy”
