Obese Man’s Quest To Drop Weight Spurs Inspirational Note From Stranger (PHOTOS)

Jonathan Bellshaw has struggled with his weight for nearly his entire life, and recently took to jogging to shed some unwanted pounds. According to Daily Mail, an inspirational note that he found along his route has inspired him to keep moving forward.

The man once tipped the scales at more than 400 lbs., but has shed himself all the way down to a shade under 300 lbs. – and he’s not done yet. His secret? He’s been jogging his way to better health and a size he is much happier with, and that didn’t escape the notice of a stranger who has played witness to his transformation.

While jogging along one day, Jonathan came across a note pinned to a traffic light along his route.

“To the guy with the 'run for Blood Cancer t-shirt, every morning I drive past you and your lovely little dogs at 6.15am on my way to work and I just wanted to let you know that I think you are awesome. I wish I had your determination and I hope that you don't mind me saying – the pounds are just melting off you,” the note read.

The note was signed as only from “Lucy,” but Jonathan was determined to learn more. He enlisted friends and family to help track her down via Facebook. Lucy recently came forward, and the pair is planning to meet in person.
