Off The Record

Obese Reality Star Casey King Loses Two-thirds Of His Body Weight, And You Better Sit Down Before Seeing Him Today

The weight was justified.

After putting himself through an intensive workout and nutrition regimen for the past four years, a reality personality who formerly weighed in at a staggering 845 pounds has lost over two-thirds of his body weight.

When Casey King, 38, had bariatric surgery in 2019, it helped him on his weight loss journey, which ultimately resulted in a 600-pound weight drop.

That same year, the native of Georgia had an appearance on the TLC reality series “Family By the Ton,” where he was shot in his pants since all of the clothing was too constricting and tight.

According to King in the series, he reached 300 pounds by the time he graduated from high school, making him a “big kid” all along. He started working in restaurants after graduating and increased his consumption of food.

After quitting his job and moving in with his dad a few years later, he gained an incredible 845 pounds.

He had gained so much weight that it was difficult for him to do simple daily tasks like taking a shower.

King was too small to fit into a regular-sized shower or bathtub, so he was forced to wash in an outside trough on his father’s back deck.

“Because I am a bigger guy with, like, folds and flaps, I have to move around, almost like a pig in a way, and wallow and roll over to get the back of my leg. I have to lift up literal pieces of skin. It’s just a super difficult process,” King claimed.

He also acknowledged that he couldn’t reach around to wipe his behind and needed his father’s assistance.

He openly admitted on the reality show, “I need his help a little bit to clean myself, you know, wiping just my a— because I can’t reach everything on my back, and I can’t reach everything below me.”

When he initially saw surgeon Dr. Charles Procter Jr. throughout the series, he discovered that before having bariatric surgery, he had to drop weight on his own.

King’s mother forced him to exercise and placed him on a healthy diet to assist him begin the process of losing weight.

He joked on the show, “We jokingly say that my mother is a drill sergeant. She’s just more controlling with what I’m eating, how much I’m eating and she’s so strict with my diet sometimes that I think about cheating. I’m not proud of it. Dieting sucks.”

King’s stomach was eventually reduced “from the size of a basketball to the size of a racquetball” via a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, which also caused him to stop eating.

He went from 700 pounds to 631 pounds after the surgery, and for the previous four years, he had stuck to his weight-loss plan.

King has amassed more than 45,000 followers on Instagram thanks to his health journey posts, where fans are enthralled with his remarkable bodily change.

King ultimately received his unemployment benefits back, and for the past three years, he has been employed at Home Depot, where he finds that the position keeps him busy.

On his 37th birthday in November 2021, King announced on social media that he has lost 255 pounds.

“I’m at my happiest since forever and I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more or “I’m the healthiest I’ve been since #highschool I’m the happiest I’ve been since #forever and I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more or #loved myself more,” he captioned the photo, saying, “5 pounds away from a weight I never really considered imaginable, I never saw even possible.”

For those in need of guidance, the motivational personality has created an Instagram highlight reel with all of her weight-loss suggestions, which include staying away from sugary drinks and drinking water throughout the day.

He adds that an important component of his diet is concentrating on protein that isn’t fried or covered in marinades high in sugar.

Finding healthy choices is not that bad. It’s not that difficult. You just gotta be smart,” King advised his supporters.

“Be as active as you possibly can. Put activity into everything. Find something that you’re interested in to be active,” he added. “I got into hiking, and I’ve always liked running, so I do those kind of things. Do whatever works for you.”

King is already down to 250 pounds and hopes to drop another 25. In addition, he wants to have surgery to remove the extra skin that hangs from his arms, chest, and stomach. A friend has started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the procedure.
