A student in Canton is receiving praise from his school district after an incredible weight loss.
The Canton City School District posted on Facebook about McKinley Senior High School student Michael Watson who lost 115 pounds.
"After years of being overweight, Michael took matters into his own hands," the district wrote.
The district said he "adopted a healthier lifestyle of eating and exercise by taking the road less traveled."
They added that Michael walked to school every single day regardless of the weather for his sophomore, junior and senior year.
The district said Michael is looking forward to graduating and working full-time.
take matters into one’s own hands：慣用語，親自處理問題。例句：The police were doing nothing about finding my missing dog, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and look for it myself.（警察在尋找我走失的狗上毫無作為，所以我決定自己動手來找。）
the road less traveled：慣用語，形容非傳統、將人帶向與大多數人不同方向的選擇，有「做出獨立自主與帶有領導性之選擇」的弦外之音；出自美國詩人羅伯特．佛洛斯特（Robert Frost）的著名詩作「未行之路」（The Road Not Taken）中的一句… Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -I took the one less traveled by（林中分出二路，我選了較少人走的那條路）。
