Eric Hites is a 560-pound man taking transformation to a whole new level. In a mission he himself calls "Fat Guy Across America," he's biking from the East to West Coast to lose weight.
Hites started in Massachusetts, and he told The Newport Daily News he lost 60 pounds in the first two weeks.
But 90 miles from where he started, equipment problems slowed him down, and for days he was stuck in Rhode Island.
