Warren firefighters and other city workers are seeing a lot less of Fire Commissioner Wilburt “Skip” McAdams these days.
He's melting! He's melting!
And that’s a good thing for the city’s 51-year-old top fire administrator, who has lost 85 pounds since January.
Under doctor’s orders to shed weight, he has extinguished fast food and his entire daily diet and exercise regimen consists of only two Slim-Fast shakes, two pieces of fruit, a Lean Cuisine meal and five miles of walking.
Currently at 295 pounds, McAdams said he hopes to drop to between 200 and 220 pounds.
“I never believed that stuff, ‘When you lose weight, you feel better,’” he said. “I do feel better.”
Mayor James Fouts, who jogs five to six miles a day, called his Fire Department appointee “the increasingly disappearing fire commissioner.”
