SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (KSAZ)
FOX 10 is hearing from the man who is inspiring others with his weight loss journey and who is locally and nationally known as "Possible Pat".
He is recovering from having several feet of excess skin removed after losing more than 300 pounds.
Pasquale Brocco lost that weight by eating right and exercising.
A Scottsdale surgeon offered to remove the excess skin, free of charge.
That 10-hour surgery was on Monday and now he is recovering at home.
"They took about seven feet worth of skin and I have a couple thousand stitches, which is exciting," said Brocco.
Pat can return to the gym in about eight weeks.
And after getting into top shape he plans to compete in a men's fitness competition.
