Randy’s story on My 600-lb Life
Randy appeared on My 600-lb Life during season 4 episode 10. When he was told he was “too big to be a father”, he decided that enough was enough and decided he wanted to drop the 640 pounds he carried.
Food addiction dissolved his marriage and keeps him from seeing his daughter, which later motivated him to endure a rigorous pre-surgery diet surrounded by fast food temptations to regain control of his life.
His weight has been spiralling out of control since he was in school, which led to Randy becoming so heavy he had to move back in with his parents, because he couldn’t do simple tasks for himself.
With a lymphedema in his leg, his sister Danielle helped him do small activities, despite Randy “not wanting to be a burden on anybody.” From Hardin, Texas, he grew up being an athletic football player.
His father, a youth sports coach, told him to eat as much as he wanted so he could use his size on the field.
He has lost 350 pounds since TLC
By sixth grade, Randy weighed 180 pounds. He then continued to put on the pounds and later met his wife, Danielle, at the age of 22 years old. They are no longer together and got divorced due to infertility strugglea.
He then became depressed, which led to more weight gain. A while later, Randy met another woman called Ashley, and together they welcomed a daughter named Khloe.
Since Randy’s TLC debut back in March 2016, his life has dramatically changed. His last weight update in 2021 saw him at 340 pounds, which means he has dropped almost half of his body weight since his first appearance.
He has gone from being unable to put his shoes and socks on, to regularly playing golf and bowling for fun.
