BREAKING WEATHER

SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT & SUNDAY

It looks like some wet weather is headed our way tonight with the possibility of some severe storms overnight. A warm front is pushing north from the Gulf of Mexico into Northwest Florida as a storm system to the west of us moves in as well. Both look like theyll make for some showers with heavy rainfall possible at times. We also have the chance to see isolated storms close to the coast. Our chance for severe weather increases Sunday as the warm front tracks northeast. We could see strong thunderstorms, damaging winds, and we cant rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado. Some flooding could be possible due to the potential for heavy rainfall. Stay tuned to Channel 3 News for the latest updates.

A 'Really Big Loser' for his family

A trip to an amusement park inspired a father  to become a *Really Big Loser.*
He was at this amusement park --and simply wanted to take a train ride with his wife and son --

But at five feet seven inches tall and three hundred and six pounds -- Larry McFerron recalls --
I just couldn't buckle in , and it was the most embarrassing, I had a girl trying to kick down my stomach down while the other pulled the seatbelt down, and it just wasn't gonna make it,  Leaving my wife and my son on the ride when I got off, it was the worst walk I'd ever taken.

He said that journey was so humiliating,, that eventually, it really made him think about his life,, his family and his future,, and it led him to a journey,, that led him here,, six days a week, the results one year later -- a remarkable difference.>

This is Larry McFerron now -- 150 pounds lighter. He regularly works out with bill the trainer at this recreation center --
And says he really didn't diet --

I did count my calories ,, but I also counted the nutrients I was putting in my body.
Bill says Larry's secret to success?? Three things --anyone can do!

It takes really three things, Cardio, Nutrition and Strength training>
Larry now shares his story --to say if he can change his fitness and food habits --anyone can --

My whole life, even as a kid I was heavy
He and Bill both agree the hardest part is getting started:

Come in the door, give yourself five minutes, once you give yourself five minutes you are good to go.

As for his plans for the future -- Larry says he's going to continue daily workouts to keep the weight off.

He says having gone from this -- to this -- has been quite a ride --
And speaking of rides --guess what he plans on doing with his son --as soon as possible --when his favorite amusement park opens again.
