Time is up for one UWSP senior working to lose more than half his body weight before his 22nd birthday.

It's been more than a year since Troy Fox set off on his weight loss journey, tipping the scales at 435lbs. Now, just days away from his 22nd birthday, Fox has reached the finish line, losing a grand total of 230lbs.

"As of today I was at about 204lbs, 205lbs," Fox tells NewsChannel 7.

If you're doing the math, that's 20lbs down since we first met him in August. Fox's dad, who inspired him to make this journey after being diagnosed with cancer, couldn't be more proud.​
