A FORTY stone man has vowed to beat the bulge by powering through countless 5km runs – and plans to conquer a marathon. Derek Mitchell weighed 625lbs when he embarked on his epic weight-loss quest in March 2014. After overcoming a soda addiction and starting his gruelling exercise regime, Derek, from Kansas City, USA, has shrunk to 564lbs and hopes to eventually slim down to a svelte 225lbs.
