How a Reality Star Who Weighed 845 Pounds Documented His Journey and Inspired Thousands of People

Weight loss is a journey that can often feel impossible. It’s a struggle that many of us have faced, and it can take a serious toll on both our physical and emotional well-being. But here’s the thing — it is possible. And sometimes, real-life examples can be the most inspiring.

Take Casey King, for instance. At his heaviest, he weighed 845 pounds. But through sheer determination and hard work, he managed to lose two-thirds of his body weight.
Casey King first appeared before the public eye on TLC’s reality show, Family by the Ton. According to King himself, he was always a “big kid,” and by the time he graduated from high school, he was already tipping the scales at 300 pounds. Instead of taking control of his eating habits, he continued to work in restaurants and indulge in unhealthy fast food.
Due to his significant weight gain, King faced difficulties in carrying out routine activities, such as bathing. His physical size prevented him from fitting into a standard shower or bathtub, forcing him to an outdoor trough located on his father’s back deck to clean himself.
“Because I’m 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,” Casey claimed.

After a change in mindset, his life started heading toward a better side.
King started a strict diet and workout routine, and he also underwent surgery to reduce the size of his stomach in order to eat less. This surgery helped him drop from 711 pounds to 525, and he stayed loyal to his new healthy lifestyle routines, even if they were really hard for him at first.

King secured employment at Home Depot after being unemployed for some time and has been working there for years. This job has been beneficial for him, as it has helped him to remain active.
“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 wrote in an Instagram caption. “5 pounds away from a weight I never really considered imaginable, I never saw even possible.”
King currently weighs 250 pounds and wants to lose 25 more. He also wants to have surgery to remove the extra skin hanging from his arms, chest, and stomach.
