Name: Todd
Age: 15
Lives: Victoria
Status: Single
Motivation to lose weight: Todd wants to be a famous baseball player and nothing is going to stop him. He would also like to “make his dad proud”. Todd idolises Gerald, but Gerald feels that he looks after him in both good ways and bad ways – especially with eating habits. They do everything together and were both bullied at school. As Gerald says: “the cycle needs to stop…now.”
