A Look at J.T.’s Remarkable Transformation After Appearing on ‘My 600-lb Life’

Julius Clark, popularly known as J.T., made history as one of the heaviest patients to appear on the hit reality TV show ‘My 600-lb Life.’ However, since his appearance on the show, J.T. has made significant progress in his weight loss journey. Today, he looks almost unrecognizable compared to his time on the show. Let’s take a closer look at J.T.’s remarkable transformation and see how he’s doing now.

The Journey Begins

J.T. embarked on his weight loss journey when he decided to seek help from Dr. Nowzaradan, also known as Dr. Now, on ‘My 600-lb Life.’ At the time of filming, J.T. weighed nearly 900 pounds, making him one of the heaviest individuals to enter Dr. Now’s care. His immense weight was further exacerbated by a massive lymphedema on his leg, adding an extra 100 pounds, and bringing his total weight to 892 pounds.

Life at Home

In 2020, J.T. was living in Oklahoma with his girlfriend, Jessica, and his dog. Having been unable to work for several years due to his weight, J.T. relied on Jessica for support and sustenance. His addiction to food was a central theme in his struggle, with J.T. candidly admitting that eating was more important to him than anything else, stating, “Nothing in my life can compete with how food makes me feel.”

A Harrowing Road to Houston

Realizing the severity of his situation, J.T. made the life-altering decision to travel to Houston to seek Dr. Now’s help. Although faced with numerous challenges, including the end of his relationship with Jessica, J.T. remained determined to pursue his weight loss journey under Dr. Now’s care. Through sheer perseverance and dedication, J.T. managed to shed nearly 400 pounds while under Dr. Now’s guidance.

Life After Surgery

Following a life-changing gastric sleeve surgery, J.T. underwent a transformative journey, ultimately shedding a total of 373 pounds. His progress was not only evident physically but also emotionally, as he appeared to be in a much better place post-surgery. Furthermore, J.T. underwent surgery to remove the massive lymphedema on his leg, marking another significant milestone in his weight loss journey.

The Present Day

In recent years, J.T. has continued to make strides in his weight loss journey. His updated social media profile picture is a testament to his remarkable transformation, showcasing a visibly slimmer and healthier appearance. While he may not be as active on social media, his progress speaks volumes about his commitment to leading a healthier lifestyle.
