Default Charles78 on ET!

I was working out on the elliptical at the gym, and there was Charles!!! They had a feature on people who'd lost a lot of weight and there he was! I wish I could have heard his voice, but at least I got to see him! And Charles, you looked great!

Did I see that you're in People magazine too???

Way to go! You've got such a great attitude and a great story!

Yes, I saw it too. And he was talking about his daughter, just like he does here. I made my kids come and watch, and they said but "But ma, he's not a "chick" . It was just wonderful, simply wonderful. And this Friday the issue that he is in hits newstands - People magazine's annual 1/2 their size issue. I will definitely be purchasing it.

I searched ET's site to see if I could find it, but the only thing they seem to archive are the Hollywood stars.....let's hope someone puts it up on YouTube. Charles--did you record yourself?

I picked up People mag today. Ooooh! I love this issue! There are tons (no pun intended ) of great success stories from regular folks to stars.

They also have more snippets and pictures on their web site...
