    Dear Beast, I just discovered your videos and I had watched a few of them but I decided to comment here on a recent one.. First of all, congratulations on your spectacular success. And it looks like you have maintained it for a few years. WooHoo. You look really good, even with your shirt off. Your video about wraps caught my attention because my sister sells them. I have thought it was worthless,but I was hoping they worked for you because my excess skin far exceeds yours. I am hoping to lose 180 pounds and at this moment I am down 145. And the loose skin is now a BIG deal, but I suspect I will not get surgery. So here are a couple of comments. About being happy happy happy. Loosing weight was hard because I had to give up my self medication of food. When things were hard, I couldn't go to comfort food. All I could do is pray and deal with life other ways. So I did. However I wasn't happy while obese. The food was only temporary and I would feel ashamed if I ate what it took to feel full sometimes. I am overall happier now, but I have a number of other health problems that have improved but still are limiting. I had to laugh with your post about compression garments. Women who run deal with the bouncing all the time, especially if they are busty. Anyway, thanks for posting and keep up the great work on yourself and being an encouragement to the heavy community.

    I read that fasting can help tighten skin because your body starts to eat up the proteins in your skin tissue during a prolonged fast. Have you heard much about this? I wasn't able to locate any primary research on this topic.

    I think it’s also dangerous to have the type of thinking where “if you are big you are unhappy and if you are not big you are happy” because it becomes a web of people with that type of thinking to box people into what they think they should be. It’s that type of thinking that makes someone rude to someone who is big who looks happy, because they assume that she should be unhappy ALL the time due to their size. It also can lead to people not taking people who are not big seriously, because if someone who is not big seems serious or unhappy, then those type of people with that mindset justify disregarding thin or fit people’s feelings saying “at least you are not big, you should be happy”.
    I’m basically saying some people with that type of thinking worry me a little bit because they want to not only assume someone will act a certain way based on their size, but will sometimes be vocal about it resulting in the type of comment you got on Instagram. Which wasn’t totally bad, but it shows that people (I’ll admit, even me) either think or hope you will be happy when thin. I think some hope you are happy thin because they would like to think they would have that same happy mindset if they lose weight too. Me personally, I’m obese and unhappy, and I’m taking steps to change that. I think being hopeful makes a huge difference because there are people out there who are big and miserable, or even think and miserable. My husband is thin but wishes he could GAIN weight. Really good video, I like how you touched on that topic and talked about it.

    To me, having lost and gained weight enough times I could probably write a book about it, I feel like when the weight is off it puts me in a headspace that allows me to battle all of those other things that make me unhappy. It makes it easier to face those other things because i have a new confidence and sense of security. So I feel like, losing the weight directly attributes to happiness. Still a whole lot of work that goes into it though.

    I have struggled with my weight my whole life, nicknamed LardAss as a kid. Lost 95# in my 20's, gained it PLUS back. Lost 90# in my 30's, gained it back. Now in my 40's, I am not giving up that easy. I lost 90+ dieting and running, gained a chunk. I started following you and Craig Richie and Crossfit… LIFE changer. It's one thing to lose the weight, it's completely different to change your outlook and decisions. Looking back to my pics of being my heaviest… I wasn't happy. I may have been smiling, but I certainly wasn't happy about my size, clothes fitting, extreme sweating [I mean EXTREME sweating], panting like a dog, ackey knees, bad back… Life sucked, but I smiled for the camera.
    Johnny Boy… You're a tough dude. Strong too, but tough to put yourself out there for everyone. Keep up the fabulous posts.

    Plus you have on a Marvel shirt! That's happiness! But yes, I get your point. I think the journey is much more than happiness. It's a day to day life thing, it's a health thing.

    I would agree with most of it. Weight loss programs on TV are bullshit. Anyone can starve themselves and lost a bunch of weight. The real fight is keeping it off, that's why you don't see cast reunions of the Biggest Loser. I started in January 2016 at 366. Waist size 50, chest 3x-4x. On two prescriptions for high blood pressure. Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea (stopped 87 times per hour 3-5 is the norm). To me it's not about waking up one day and instantly going on a restrictive diet and killing yourself in the gym. I started small. For the first three months I just cut back on the crap and lost about 30 pounds. Later on a coworker told me about keto and tried it out after looking into it. A month after starting keto I started walking every morning for about an hour building up to 3 miles. My loss has mainly been cardio. I have been tempted to use weights but with all of the complexity involved (reps, weights, form) it just seems a bit much. To me it's not about making a sudden, huge, drastic change like many people do. Most of the people who do this get completely miserable and quit. Today I am sitting at around 194, waist size 36, chest LG, my sleep apnea is still there but I stop around 11x per hour, which is considered mild. MY high blood pressure is gone, no more medication. Sure, I cheat every few days. When I go on vacation I can sometimes gain up to 10 pounds when I eat carbs. I do it with the understanding that when the cheat window closes, I'm back on the program. That 10 pounds I gain is typically lost in four days. It's just as hard a mental battle as it is a physical one. It is not meant to be easy. The older you are the harder it is, as we get older we become more mentally and physically resistant to change, when I started I was 41. I don't feel happier than I was before but i know I am better than I was. It is similar to the difference between pleasure and contentment that Dr. Robert Lustig refers to in his book "Hacking of the American Mind."

    I was always a bigger guy, but I had the same issue of just rapidly gaining weight right after high school. I've bounced up and down in weight since then, trying different things to keep it off. I don't drink soda at anymore, I don't use salt on my food when I cook, and I eat pretty balanced meals for the most part. My issues are with working out. I feel like I messed myself up by waiting so long because now I have major back issues that make it hard for me to do a lot of physical activity. I have degenerative disc disease and my lower back is constantly hurting. It's hard to even walk around at work all day. I joined a gym last November, but had to quit two months later because it was making my back hurt even more. You have any suggestions on what I could do to loose weight without causing myself more physical pain?

    Can someone help me with this problem? My body fat percentage is about 13-14% according to the machine I use at home but the thing is I was severely obese once and until now I still have man boobs and they sag. However, I feel like I am quite skinny. My rib cage are kinda obvious and popping out a bit. Now I am wondering if I should continue to lose fats until they are gone or not

    I am currently down 95 lbs. over several years. For me, I had to learn how to be happier first before I could begin changing my lifestyle to lose the weight and be healthier. "If only" and "Because of" are dead ends. I say "Thank you" when ever I lose a few pounds or feel stronger or have more energy. I avoid sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed foods in general. I practice intermittent fasting and do vigorous exercise 15 to 20 minutes a day. A lifetime of being overweight and eating the wrong foods have left me with chronic health conditions that limit the amount of exercise I should do. I would recommend reading "Genius Foods" by Max Lugavere and Paul Grewal, M.D. if you are interested in which foods affect mood, happiness, memory, dementia, decision making as well as general health.

    I’m down almost 50 lbs from my heaviest… still have a long way to go on my weight loss journey. But I think you’re right. I don’t think it’s a silver bullet either. You can be an unhappy and miserable person at any weight! Choosing to take steps towards being a more healthy person are going to be beneficial, of course… but if your happiness is dependent upon you being a certain number on the scale or a certain size, I think you just set yourself up for disappointment.

    you've stated that weightloss happens in the kitchen and fitness happens in the gym. With that I say everything is separate and needs it's own attention. I've lost 150 lbs and I feel physically so much better. However all the other things I wanted to improve as well haven't changed really. I'm still shy to everyone but especially women. And I'm trying to translate my success with weight loss to other areas to improve confidence. But really nothing has changed yet except that I've been able to control my diet. I still have to break out of my concrete shell.

    For me I lost 75 lb and it changed my life. I've never been happier I've never been in better relationships or been a better employee. I've now gone back to school got married done everything that I've ever wanted to do and it all started with the discipline of losing weight.

    I've personally struggled with my weight my entire life (I first hit 200 lbs when I was 10 years old). I went from morbidly obese at 16/17 at about 265+ lbs, to somewhat fit at 215, ballooned back up to about 275, and now I'm on my way back down again. All the ballooning I did was due predominantly to my headspace at the time, which was horrible. I was dealing with completely untreated major depression and anxiety and a toxic relationship, which made it easy to just say "screw it. I'll just let myself die".
    I used to be in that spot where I would practically eat nothing, then spend 3-4 hours at the gym. And yes, I was miserable. My knees and ankles are permanently damaged from running too much at such a high weight, and my thought process towards diet was completely skewed. After I would try to exercise, my legs would hurt. I would get depressed, give up, get fat again, then start the process over. Now as I'm older, I've come to change my viewpoint entirely; I've put more focus on my diet, making sure to eat healthy proteins, veggies, and few simple sugars. I've made more changes that focused on my overall mental health in order to be able to think positively about my physical health (got an evaluation, put onto antidepressants). I've lost 30 pounds thus far (still far away from my goal of 180), and I firmly believe it was done in a MUCH healthier way than my previous attempts. It's slow going, but its steady and, most importantly, sustainable.

    I've been watching your blogs and it's almost been a month for me to start of my process of eating healthy and doing healthy activities… May 1st I weighed 255, and now since I've been doing the things that I learned from you and other people… I weighed myself at 240… and I heard 15lbs is good for a month…

    It's quite the opposite, actually! When I was morbidly obese I would never have ice cream or cookies. I thought that because I was already fat I shouldn't be allowed to eat these, and many other foods. Now that I better understand nutrition and calories I have them from time to time, because I know how to fit them into my diet, and it feels great!

    When you are overweight and you can't really do anything, it becomes a big obstacle in your life. When you are thinner and in good shape, you are still the same person but without the added stress of being overweight. My natural personality is a happy person, but it gets hidden behind the overweight issues that can't be ignored once you reach a certain weight. Being overweight limits so much of what you can do or get done and to eliminate that, well,I think it is worth it. Yes, I have happy moments. But if I could weigh less, I would be overall happier.

    Ive lost 70 lbs in 17 months with the last 38 coming off in the last three months. Finally was able to stop myself from binging and quitting after a week. I use your videos as well as a couple others to help keep me motivated! I feel great. Better than I can remember at least. I just put a 10 hour day in. Usually I would get out of my car and my feet were killing me. Just realized that today, my feet feel great!

    I lost 50 pounds two years ago. But I never expected it to make me happy, or magically solve any problems. I did it because I finally had the space in my life to accomplish something in my body, to take hundreds of tiny steps to control the only thing anyone can control, their own habits. That distance is the reason I've never kicked myself for not being good enough, strong enough, broad-shouldered enough. It's the reason I've never kicked myself for falling off the wagon and gaining back ten pounds. It's the reason I've hopped right back on the wagon with more longterm goals. Each plate of rice and Chinese food is important, but only a little piece of the big picture.

    Fitness is only one piece of the big picture, of life. It's dangerous for people to start their fitness journey with delusions of perfect happiness and the cure to all their woes. Instead, downplay the importance of the pounds you lose and the muscle you gain. That way, you can always recognize that fitness is one big piece of the puzzle, and when you do achieve milestones, you can enjoy them for all the good they really are.

    Dealing with the attitudes of people pre and post workout is certainly a headache. I'm tired of the jealous people, tired of the gossips, tired of the people asking for advice that don't want to change. I'm just halfway to my goal, but already dealing with people's issues. Fat and happy, indeed! However, I don't plan to stop.

    I’m on the journey now. Currently down 50lbs. Having been obese for pretty much twenty years I honestly take people who claim to be 100% happy with being obese with a HUGE pinch of salt. Except for the caveat of people who have a fat fetish, I just don’t buy it.
    Obviously obese people can be happy on a day to day basis, they can be happy with their general life. But I don’t believe that obese people, who live in a European based culture, can be truly happy when they look in the mirror. We’ve all lived through the stares, the comments, the bullying, the clothes shop embarrassment, the arms on a chair that are too narrow for your butt. If you live through all that and you’re still happy with your body image then I feel you’re either a fetishist, a masochist or more likely: lying to yourself.
    Coming to terms with the brutal truth was for me the first step to a new life.

    yh i was recording a video today but the footage got corrupted idk how and it was called why im obese? its gonna be my first video of a project im going to try on youtube and while i was talking to the camera i think i realised why it doesnt always = happiness and the reason put it back on. so we get obese from eating too much and being too stressed/unhappy etc which helps to develop eating disorders. so i theorise that we develop eating disorders which make us obese and so when people lose weight thats great and all but they havent gotten to the root of the problem like bad relationships trauma etc and so even though you lose the weight if you still have those problems which developed them in the first place then they are gonna return and you are gonna get fat again and then it's even worse cuz you lose the hope of losing weight being your saving grace and get more depressed eat even more and get even heavier than you were before you started losing weight in the first place.
    its taken me a few months but ive successfully lost my first 5kg while also working on other projects and stuff taht are truly making me happy too.

    As someone who has recently taken steps towards getting more fit and taken a class to become a nurse assistant, I say that if getting buff isn't motivation enough then think about the future. During my clinicals I've seen people who are still quite young who end up in care facilities mainly because they are so obese they've lost all mobility. Not only do they need assistance with simple daily tasks, but assisting them is quite difficult because of their mass. If nothing else get fit so that you can remain independent for as long as possible, barring disease or some other debilitation–even then, being healthy can only help.
