Additionally, his following and supporters gave him a lot of encouragement as he lost weight. He claimed, though, that he isn’t happy with the way he looks and is attempting to drop more weight. He wrote in the post:
Such a relief to finally post this comparison/progress video. When I took that before video it just hung over me for a few weeks. It felt like a documentation of my failure, then after months I forgot about it, but then getting to use it as the before photo in my show yesterday felt so good. I’m in a comfortable place now, about 2/3rds of where I want to be but excited to reach my full health goals and then maintain that.
He said on Instagram that he hasn’t lost a lot of weight over time because his diet has been on and off, but he has kept up with his workouts because it feels good to get stronger. He added that when he first began back up, he could hardly perform 10 push-ups or hang from a bar for two seconds. He claims that he can now perform 100 pushups and hang for the entire set of hanging crunches and leg raises. With every day, he feels more and more like his former self.
He publicly apologized to his fans and followers for his disappearance on YouTube. Even in his worst moments, he cared about his fans and followers, so he composed the statement below to address the issue:
I am genuinely sorry because I feel like I’m letting you down but I also know myself well enough to know that if I continue to force it I will just implode soon, so this is the better option for the long term.
