- In my head mainly
Rocky was living as a morbidly obese teenager long before it became a topic on the nightly news, and his 2003 radio documentary “My Struggle with Obesity,” was one of the first substantive media stories about this growing trend. At fifteen he produced a radio story that captured on tape his desperation to fit in, his futile attempts to control his eating, and the relentless teasing by his skinny twin sister, family and friends. The audience and media response to his personal account of living as a fat teenager put Rocky at the center of the public discussion about the national childhood obesity epidemic.
