Trisha Paytas loses 37 pounds
The Youtuber posted a before and after picture on Instagram showing her weight loss. She captioned the photo, “pic on the left (1) taken Jan 2019 @ 217 lbs // pic on the right taken today @ 180 lbs. I still have a long way to go. BUT I know my biggest insecurity since I was literally 8 years old, has been my weight. I remember kids in the 3rd grade making fun of my weight. I didn’t understand it other than it made me feel bad. It’s followed me my whole life.”
Paytas revealed that because of body-shaming, she “actually ended up eating more to cover my feelings”. She continued further, “Everyone’s go to hate comments are “miss piggy” “you’re obese” “keep shoving food in your mouth”. As these continued to grow, so did my weight. The highest I ever was was at the beginning of this year at 217 lbs and I was mortified.”

As a result of people constantly telling me how fat I am , unattractive, etc , I actually ended up eating more to cover my feelings. Shaming didn’t encourage me to be healthy , it just made me think I’m already fat so what’s the point ? The more weight I gained , the less appealing I felt. How could anyone love me like this ? How could I love myself like this ?
Everyone’s go to hate comments are “miss piggy” “you’re obese” “keep shoving food in your mouth”. As these continued to grow , so did my weight. The highest I ever was was at the beginning of this year at 217 lbs and I was mortified. ⚠️ STRONG ADVISORY WARNING ⚠️ I’m not suggesting being at a healthy weight fixes all your problems !!!!!!! But I’m doing this to gain confidence back in myself and to practice discipline in every aspect of my life right now. I lack will power and addictions of all types have gotten the better of me , including food. I’m trying to regain control of my life, starting with regaining control of me and my feelings and love towards myself. am eating and documenting what I eat and do for exercise.
I was suppose to be getting liposuction surgery today but I chose to do this on my own this time. I want to feel the rewards of self control both physically and mentally 🙏🏼 please also know this is just my personal journey. It’s taken me 31 years to feel ready to start losing any significant amount of weight and everyone has to come to their journey of change (if you even want to , nobody has to) , at their right moment. It’s all timing , mindset and what you want for you.
YouTube and Mukbang
The 31-year-old’s Mukbang videos are her most popular. In these videos, she binge-eats a lot of unhealthy food in front of a camera. She has posted multiple photos on her social media showcasing her weight loss.
Another photo had the caption, “pic on the left feb 1, 2019 weight 217 lbs // pic on the right taken today may 31, 2019 weight 180lbs. I needed discipline in all aspects of my life. Regaining control of my food step 1 it’s not about looking better. It’s about feeling better I’ve been eating food for the mind and it’s slowly healing me.”
