(inspiring music) – Hey guys, I’m FTR, I am 594 pounds. It’s about time we make a change. So I figured if I put this in social media, I might try to stick with something for once. Follow me if you wanna keep updates and wish me luck. (inspiring music) (upbeat music) Yo, I am floored right now. I did not expect to have 20,000 of you following me. A package got delivered to the front office. Instead of me taking my car, driving it to the front office, decided to go the walk and get it. – (electronic scale voice) 574.4 pounds. If you did your weigh in today as well comment below how much you lost. Lets go for another week. With 20,000 of you I definitely gotta go through with this, right?

(applause) I mean okay, you inspire me so much, but tell us about yourself. – You know, my name’s Marcus, of course, and I’m from Chandler, Arizona and I’m just a normal guy, works at a call center and, you know, obviously as you guys can see, I’m a pretty big guy and, you know, a few months back I realized I needed to make a change. And I posted up this video on TikTok, just hoping to get maybe 100 to 200 followers. And, you know, to help support me in the journey and everything and – Keeps you accountable, too, it’s a good way to do that. – Exactly, yes and I was hoping that they would do that for me and I was, like, okay I posted up the video. I’m gonna go to bed.
