Casey King’s weight loss updates
A man who weighed about 800 pounds dropped an incredible amount and is now at 238 pounds. Casey King, who appeared on ‘My 3000lb Family’ only four years ago, is virtually unrecognisable after undergoing a significant weight loss journey. The Georgia man weighed 51st when he appeared on the TLC reality show.
Footage from the show showed him in his underwear playing video games as recently as 2019. Before that, Casey weighed more than 56th in 2014 and was embarrassed because he couldn’t get out of his shower. Now 38 years old, the man has opened up about how his weight affected him mentally and how he changed his life.
