you don’t have to be perfect to inspire people you just have to show people how you deal with your imperfections.........obese people need to drop their excuses, I did get here I made bad choices, but I am not depressed I am a jolly fat man"

Takeaways from Ed Andrew talking with Sean Mulroney.

Sean Mulroney is a social entrepreneur and founder of the Obesity Revolution whose mission is let everyone with obesity or weight issues receive the medical, psychological, nutritional and exercise programs they need. The basic membership will always be free. Sean is is documenting his struggles and decided to be publicly held accountable for this journey in the attempt to help and encourage others. He was one of the worlds heaviest men at 678 lbs and he is also the host of Teens of America podcast a high ranking radio show covering every teenage angst from serious to light hearted.  Sean is a leading advocate for teenage empowerment.

Ed and Sean discuss a wide range of topics especially around the lack of social acceptance of obesity, how psychological and physical trauma can lead to chronic weight gain, where genetics come in and the stem cell work that his doctors are doing to bring to everyone with obesity. Sean is truly inspirational, incredibly warm, full of humour, and one of the people who will surely make an impact on the planet. 

Sean Mulroney experimented with drugs at age 6 and became a virtual test pilot for what kinds of drugs a person could ingest and still survive, and by the tender age of 13 was an addict. While watching his high school friends die from suicide and drug overdoses, Sean excelled as an athlete and a drummer in a rock band and felt he had escaped the negative consequences of his bad choices. Unfortunately, those consequences caught up with him. Now in his forties, Sean battles obesity and life-threatening diseases because of the choices he made decades ago. Now a billboard for poor choices, he travels the country telling his story and bettering the lives of thousands of teens.
