The driver, obviously threatened, pulls away and tries to escape before the cyclist hits the car multiple times with a U-lock.

“It was never about the weight. The weight was simply a metaphor for everything the extra pounds attributed to my life. 90 days ago I was 224 pounds. 224 pounds, unhappy, unhealthy and mentally unstable. If the outside of me didn’t look to appealing, you can only imagine what the inside looked like. I had no love for myself, no respect for myself and no idea of who I was. I was going down a dark dark path and I was close to the point of no return. On May 11, 2015 I decided to turn my life around.
