I’ve been following Nick Starr on Twitter and Facebook for a while now. Nick’s story is very inspirational. He lost over 100 pounds the old fashioned way. Simply through exercise and diet. Unfortunately the rapid weight loss has left him with some extra saggy skin. The only way to fix that is through plastic surgery.
Nick found a good plastic surgeon and he as started saving up. Unfortunately he needs about $6500 more for the tummy tuck. Of course insurance won’t cover it. No one will loan him money to have it done and he feels that he is at the end of his rope.
I’ve been at the end of my rope so I understand how he feels. What’s unique about this story is that Nick has come up with an extremely unconventional solution to his problem. He is going to become homeless. He is moving out of his apartment and on to the streets until he saves up enough money for the surgery.
He has a job so he won’t be hungry. He is simply giving up his apartment and other bills in order to save up the money.

Yes, this is extreme. I understand why he’s doing it though and I admire his courage. I’d like to urge you all to support Nick so that he has to spend less time sleeping on the streets.
