IScott Mitchell was a ticking time bomb. At age 46, the former record-setting NFL quarterback was bloated and worn-out, topping the scale at 366 pounds. As Scott saw his father die from obesity-related issues, he knew he was watching his own future.
Then a "divine accident" happened. Scott became a contestant on the reality TV show The Biggest Loser: Glory Days and soon came to the stark realization he was emotionally dead inside. He felt like a dying caterpillar, ready to go into a cocoon.
As the weeks went by on the show, Scott evaluated every aspect of his life. He saw how his athletic success was mirrored by a challenging home life, where all he had really wanted was a hug.
Scott developed a simple game plan to change his life. For the first time, he began to love himself. He got to work and surrounded himself with a good team to keep him accountable. He finally was in control of his own destiny. The caterpillar had emerged from his cocoon as a majestic butterfly!
As you follow Scott's odyssey of triumph, tragedy, and redemption, you too will see the power of moving beyond life's obstacles and becoming Alive Again.
