A Minnesota man is in much better shape after living in a mall for a month.

Scott Jorgenson accepted a challenge to spend 30 days in a glass house doing just about everything on display at the Mall of America.

As part of a project to promote healthier lifestyles, he cooked nutritious meals and got plenty of exercise. He shared his results before leaving the mall last weekend.

"And, I lost 27 pounds," said Jorgenson. "I got up this morning. And I was down two more, so 29 pounds. If I had known how great I would've felt, I would've done this so long ago. Anybody can do this."

Jorgenson did more than just shed pounds. He said he also brought down his cholesterol and blood pressure to normal ranges.
