Obese Man's Video Goes Viral

A 700-pound yo-yo dieter's video plea for help to lose weight is an internet sensation.

23-year-old Robert Gibbs says he's a prisoner in his own body.

Gibbs says he's struggled with his weight since he was four and has been hospitalized twice for his condition.

Gibbs says his food addiction is critical.

In 24-hours the video received 200-thousand hits on Youtube.

"I'm getting the exposure I needed. I better start getting ready for the tornado that's about to become my life."

Gibbs' YouTube video caught the attention of weight loss guru Chris Powell.

The two plan to begin working together on Gibbs weight loss goal in the near future.
