Update from a previous post…Special Olympics Louisiana athlete Virgil Atkinson has lost 15 pounds so far! Keep the comments and words of encouragement coming!
Virgil went for his first medical check up recently and the doctor advised that losing 150lbs in a few months would not be healthy and he should try to lose 50lbs. by September. We here at Special Olympics Louisiana are still holding him to the full 150lbs., but are pushing back the deadline. Virgil will weigh in again at the 2012 State Indoor Games, March 9 – 11. We will keep you posted!
