Obese man Michael Hebranko has lost and gained 3,000 lbs in his lifetime but now wants to lose weight for good. The 56-year-old New Yorker weighs 25 stone, but is slowing shedding the pounds. Yet his tale is one of astonishment. In his incredible lifetime, Hebranko gained and lost more than 214 stone (2,996 lbs), proving himself one of the best and worst dieters of all time. In 1987, he reached his heaviest weight at a monstrous 79 stone (1,106 lbs). He was lifted out of his home and hospitalised at the brink of death. Hebranko then went on a crash diet and lost 50 stone in 19 months without surgery. In 1990, he was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the highest recorded weight loss. But over the next six years, Hebranko's weight ballooned back to almost 71 stone. Today, he’s determined to change his lifestyle rather than diet. He says the pounds are coming off at a slow, healthy pace.

I always find pictures taken from space magic and beautiful. It makes us look small and at the same time it lets us contemplate all the beauty of the Earth. You will see different pics taken from the ISS over the past few months after the jump.
