My Video Response to Robert

On March 1, Robert Gibbs posted a video on YouTube asking for help with his weight problem. Robert weighs between 600 and 700 pounds.  In case you haven't seen it, here is Robert's YouTube video:

Robert's video went viral and now has over one million views.  Robert has gotten calls from all over the place, including Dr. Phil, personal trainers, etc.

But I have a different take.

Once all the media hype is over and the cameras are gone, Robert is going to be left with just Robert.  So I decided to record a video response to Robert's video.  It's about 2 minutes long and here it is:

I feel the need to "tell it like it is" because the media is making Robert out to be some sort of victim, which he is not.  While the help Robert is getting might save his life in the short-term, no one can do the work for him.  The road is long, the work is hard and there is no quick fix.
