Chris Combs quickly became the breakout star of 1000-Lb. Sisters when the older brother to Tammy and Amy showed up to support his sisters’ weight loss journeys.
After acknowledging he also had health issues and had struggled to lose weight in the past, he decided he also wanted to pursue a weight loss journey and have surgery to help him achieve his goals.
Chris got serious about his diet, and after being approved for surgery, he began shedding pounds and becoming a slimmer version of himself. Now the father of four is one step closer to reaching his goal weight and continues to share his journey with fans.
Chris shows off his weight loss on Instagram
It’s been a while since Chris has given fans an update on his weight and how he’s been feeling since his surgery. While the reality star does regularly connect with fans on social media, he has not posted about his weight loss in some time.
Chris decided it was time to show off his weight loss and posted a couple of photos on his Instagram recently. He shared a before and after picture, showing himself at his former heavier size, followed by a recent picture that highlights his weight loss.
In the caption, Chris says, “I would have to say this has been the hardest but the most rewarding journey I’ve ever done.”
One fan asked Chris, “What’s the time difference between the two pictures??”
Chris responded, “five or six years.”
Fans of the show may recall Chris sharing that one of his goals was to get below 250 pounds, which he says is a size he hasn’t been since he was in high school. He also stated part of his motivation was to encourage his wife and kids to embrace a healthier lifestyle and to be an example for them.
Chris did not reveal how much he currently weighs, but it appears he’s well on his way to reaching his goal.
