Balancing weight at a standard number is a next-level challenge for American comedian Larry The Cable Guy as he loses and gains weight depending on seasons. 

Larry The Cable Guy's Weight Loss Journey

Larry gained huge weight circa 2007 and ended up being 282lbs. The increasing weight became so problematic that the comedian suffered from a lack of energy and painful ankles. So, Larry tried the Nutri-system diet to lose extra pounds. The regimen worked, and the humorist lost 50 lbs within a year.

Post-weight-loss, he was pumped to share how good he looked and felt. So, he wrote a blog for the Nutrisystem and admitted that losing weight helped him be active and energetic. He also asserted that losing weight gave him the ability to play with his kids without needing a hit of oxygen now and then.

Moreover, in an interview with the People, he disclosed that he took his wife on a date and ate everything he wasn't supposed to celebrate the milestone.

Larry was undoubtedly proud of his journey from being embarrassed and unable to fit in britches to becoming active. He was also pretty consistent with his workouts and even had a personal trainer who would travel with him on tours. However, it didn't last as he didn't stick with the workout regimen for long and gained 50lbs in 2011. Since then, he has been trying to lose weight with workouts, and his journey has been full of some successes and a few failures.

For instance, in February 2018, he shared his weight update through a tweet. The post revealed that he had lost 24 lbs within a month and come to 261 lbs from 285 lbs. 

Gains Weight In Winter

Maintaining weight has been challenging for Larry as he gains weight every winter. In an interview with Graham Bensinger in 2017, he admitted that he lost gained weight every winter. Larry stated that he lost weight every summer by working out, drinking a lot of water, and avoiding sugar. But the lost weight would add up during the wintertime. He revealed that he gained around 40 to 40 lbs every winter. 

I can lose weight; I know how to lose weight — drink a lot of water, don't eat sugar, don't eat late, and I'll lose weight. But in the wintertime, I always put on 40 pounds, 50 pounds.

His weight would typically be around 270 and 280lbs in winter and 235 to 245 lbs in summer.
