Minn. Man Lose 27 Lbs In Glass Box At Mall

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — A Twin Cities man has moved out of a glass apartment that’s been his home at the Mall of America for the past month.

Forty-five-year-old Scott Jorgenson has been living on display at the Bloomington mall since March 18 as part of a new project created by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota to promote healthier lifestyles.

Jorgenson weighed in Saturday at 227 pounds, losing 27 pounds since going into the 20-by-30-foot box on March 18.

Jorgenson has been walking, working out and eating healthy meals. He also lowered his cholesterol and blood pressure to normal ranges during “The Human Do.ing” project. Organizers say he took about 500,000 steps over the 30 days and took part in 115 different exercises.
