When Ford first stepped on the scale he weighed in at 330 pounds, and vowed to lose 50 pounds in six months. The weekly public weigh-ins became one of the few scheduled opportunities for reporters to ask questions of the mayor. At his final weigh-in in June, ending a month earlier than originally planned, Ford had lost 17 pounds. I could’a done better, Ford said at the time. The scale now sits in the corner of the reception area for the mayor’s office, next to a wall with a framed football jersey.

I wanted to be able to lose myself in a crowd of family and friends if I went out. Now I go to festivals, car shows and craft fairs almost every weekend and will go by myself if I can’t find someone to go with me. I have fun going out now. I used to live to eat, constantly thinking about what my next meal would be and when I could eat it. Now I eat to live; food is the fuel I put in my body so I can live my life.
