Lawyer drops 240 pounds and gains a lifeAt first glance, Christopher DiOrio looks like an average guy. It's only when he holds up the 5XL shirt he used to wear that it's clear he is anything but ordinary. ''I hit 432 pounds in 2007,'' he said quietly. ''I was physically failing at age 40.'' It took DiOrio more than two years to shed 240 pounds.
