Weighing around 136 kg in high school, Craft has been dealing with his weight since childhood, he told Fox News Digital.
His depression led him to overeating, which made him withdraw from society and develop a sedentary lifestyle.
“My weight stopped me from going to family events and traveling,” he recalled. “I couldn’t get into regular vehicles. It was hard for me to get around. I had knee pain, body aches and shortness of breath.”
