My 3000-lb Family star Casey King looks unrecognisable after his dramatic weight loss.

King was 700 lbs (50 stone) when he first appeared on the TLC programme.

The reality TV star was forced to bathe outside in a trough and says he had to move around ‘like a pig’ because of his size.

Amazingly, he’s now shed an impressive 579 lbs (41.4 stone) and has shared his transformation pictures on social media.

King underwent surgery to remove part of his stomach and stuck to a strict diet and fitness regime to lose weight.

He constantly uploads pics on his Instagram and shares his progress with fans.

In one update, he posts a series of pictures throughout the year, which he says ‘represents the good and the bad’.

King writes: “Been a good 2022 and I hope to have a better 2023. Many resolutions and many plans for the future

“These pictures represent the good and the bad moments of the year.

“It’s been a ride for sure, I’m glad I’m here to experience it all and have the opportunity to continue making memories with my friends and family.

“I love you all, I hope your 2023 is 100 times better than your 2022.”

People flooded the comment section to congratulate King on his progress.

Another person applauded King by writing: “Fantastic work lad!

“Rather than crying about your situation, you’ve bettered it through discipline and hard work.

“There’s nothing us humans can’t do if we put our minds to it.”

A third person adds: “After conquering an incredible weight loss journey I’m absolutely positive you can do anything you set your mind to.”

While he appeared on the show, he admitted that his frame meant he struggled to find clothes that fit him – which resulted in him sitting naked while he played video games.

He admitted on the programme: “I never thought that at 34 I’d be living with my father and I’d have no job, have no real money and just be playing video games all day and eating.”

However, since turning his life around, he has got a job at Home Depot and has shared on social media that he is ‘looking forward to the future’.

He writes: “Don’t post about my job much but I’ve been doing pretty good lately and I am just so behind on posting random stuff.

“I had to update my badge for work, looking way different than I was three years ago when I was first hired at Home Depot.

“Been a good ride so far, looking forward to the future there as long it works with what I want in life.”
