William Banting (1787 to 1878), was a very successful undertaker but in his own eyes, he was a failure for the first 65 years of his life because of his weight.
I connect with William Banting. Firstly because of his faithful endurance ... for about 30 years he tried to lose weight, tried to find someone who could help him lose weight. From his short booklet that he wrote at the age 65 I have got to know him. Not well but I feel I would like to be more like him in many ways.
