Today I took a look at the story of Casey from TLC’s “Family By The Ton”, a show dedicated to following the journey of a real family’s weight loss. Honestly, I’m not a fan of the title of this show, but I decided to press on anyway and see if there was anything valuable to discuss. At his heaviest, Casey weighed 845 pounds and almost never left his father’s house where he stayed in bed and played video games all day. Today, Casey is employed, living on his own, and weighs under 300 pounds. His journey is nothing short of incredible, due in part to a supportive family, a strong medical team, bariatric surgery, and a commitment to improving his quality of life. Go, Casey!

So far it's pretty spot on, I appreciate the honesty and professionalism. To hear someone speak from a medical standpoint it's easier to take in criticisms and I really appreciate him explaining everything out to help others understand the mindset and how things are. It wasn't a fun life, I was miserable, the whole jounrey has been insane and crazy to apart of. I appreciate Dr. Mike for putting this out there, shouting my channel out in the bio, talking on how I'm doing now and everything. This was a really great watch, thanks everyone for the love and support and thanks again Dr. Mike

@XxSNIPERGHOSTxX maybe for them it's like starting on a less messed up page of life.
once your really fat, its easier to lose weight. i dont really get it either cause technically you can lose all that weight by exercising and watching your diet. i think its just an "easier" way to do it. unless theres something im missing@Punav Mirlekar

@XxSNIPERGHOSTxX I think.. if the doctors want him to loose 60pounds so it is possible to do it entirely of diet and workout. So why go for a dangerous surgery right? ... Just my opinion tho..
im not a doctor. but if your really overweight like him, just changing your diet can make you lose weight.

Oooohhh but according to fat activists we shouldn’t judge fat ppl and we should rearrange the entire country to accommodate them as they continue getting bigger. Because as according to one fativists the BMI chart is “racist” and we need to have special accommodations for fat ppl as we do for handicap ppl. Funny how these fativists never really show or talk about the horrific side effects of being morbidly obese. And if you even want to help someone to lose weight you’re just fatphobic and it’s all your fault and you should change not them.

I went from 132 to 93. I totally changed everything about my lifestyle. The worst thing I did to myself was convinceing myself that it was not my fault, that i was build like that and there was nothing to do about it. You can always do it. You just need resolve and most importantly, you need to stop lying to yourself. Believe in yourself and your ability to reach your goal.

At my heaviest I was 340 pounds, I looked in the mirror one day and said "what the hell have I done." I bought a stationary bike, Some basic weights and a few years later I am now 210 pounds at 6"1 and 15% body fat, Luckily no loose skin, Body building has become my way of life and it genuinely saved my life, I couldn't even imagine being 800 pounds considering 340 brought with it quality of life issues.

It's been said before, but 80% of fat loss is diet, the other 20% is exercise. There are online trainers and nutritionists that will help you if you don't want in-person coaching.

I´d just like to know how it can get that far. At some point you should notice that you´re getting fatter . I often get hate when I write this , but I really want to understand it, because I just don´t get it. Till I was 20 yo I always got told that it´s easy for me to be thin, and I can eat what I want. At 20 I startet weight training and realised that in fact it was really not a lot that I ate all these years. I noticed I get fatter after I started eating more. Quess what... I stopped eating that much. So I really don´t understand these people.

Only 4 minutes and 30 seconds in, but the man in the video seems to at least be pretty self aware of his condition, but he also seems to accept it as inevitable... Hopeful but also pretty sad. As for being having a traumatic experience seeing your own weight?.... Your personal habits are within your own control. The trauma comes from your own mind, asking yourself how you got to that point, criticizing yourself for not making better decisions, shifting part of the blame to the people that love/helped raise you because sometimes it's difficult to come to terms with your situation, even if it was your own lack of ability to cope and make healthy decisions that led you to that point. I'm by NO means overweight, but addiction is a constant struggle so I get the mindset. Also A.D.D. depression, a little anxiety, and some PTSD definitely play a role.

Thats gotta be a huge wake up call. "You are morbidly obese. Sir, we cannot scan you with our regular machines. The only machine currently large enough to use so we may administer your CAT Scans will be the one based at the local Zoo, typically engineer for larger mammals, such as large feline predators, the polar bear, etc." I'd die inside, more dead than I'd already be if I were morbidly obese. I'd honestly want to end it there if that was said to me on top of all the stress that would've drove me to let myself go that extremely. Respect to the doctors, nurses, and nutritionists that have to face these patients to bring news like that them, on top of them also telling family members when a patient passes away.

I didn't think this would be a rough video to watch. My sister just passed away, she was 360lbs ish and we had to sign a DNR because her body couldn't with stand compressions anymore but what ended up being her down fall was that she was a big girl, the doctor told us its more common for this to happen to a bigger person, and it caused her intubation tube to come out while they were moving her to a cat scan and while the ER doctor tried to put it back in she arrested and they had to let her go. Which sucks because if she hadn't had been plus sized that most likely wouldn't have happened. So there are many risks that come with being plus size besides just the well known ones like diabetes or heart disease
