    losing weight won't make you happy, getting rich won't make you happy, finding the right girl or guy won't make you happy, nothing with make you happy… unless you learn to love yourself and be happy with yourself.

    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.
