Sparks are flying! My 600-lb Life star Alicia Kirgan is still going strong with her beau, Tim, and she gushed over her “love” in a sweet new post on social media. The TV personality shared a photo of them cozying up alongside a message about their bond.
“Someone must really be feeling me, cause this man rarely even posts to Facebook but this morning he has been blowing this page up with both sweet and funny posts and sharing lots of great photos like this one,” she wrote.
Just last month, the reality star celebrated his B-day with another heartwarming statement. “Please help me wish a very happy birthday to my love Tim! We have been through many changes over the years but our love for each other remains constant!”
On January 24th two years ago my episode aired and life as I knew it was forever changed!
Alicia continues to make strides in her weight loss journey and she reached an exciting milestone in January 2020, as it was two years ago that her episode aired. “Life as I knew it was forever changed,” she wrote. So, how did she stay motivated?
“The hardest part of this journey is fighting the mental aspects that got us there to begin with,” the TLC alum revealed while giving advice in the comment section of a recent post. “Always do your best to stay positive. Positivity breeds positivity.”
Alicia previously shared an update to announce that she would be appearing on a Where Are They Now? episode. Back in June 2019, she posted a glowing photo of herself wearing a sparkling black gown and she exuded more confidence than ever.
One of her Facebook friends made sure to ask when fans would get to see her entire transformation and she replied, “Once my update episode aires! Hopefully the beginning of July.” The episode ultimately ended up being pushed back to August 2019.
The Illinois-native captivated viewers with her story on the hit reality show, revealing that she grew up in a “chaotic” household and ended up turning to food to comfort her during those tough times. At the age of 10, Alicia weighed 200 pounds and she later began her journey on the show at 622 pounds. “I felt like a failure to my mom, my family and myself,” she previously said.
On the show, Tim did whatever he could to keep her motivated while she worked hard to achieve her goals. With the help of her loved ones, Alicia was able to lose weight and be approved for bariatric surgery, so she lost a staggering 186 pounds in a year, going down to 436 pounds. “Tim was addicted to drugs, but he got clean, and now I am the one killing myself because I can’t stop myself from eating,” Alicia confessed while opening up about her life.
Nowadays, Alicia and Tim look happier than ever!
