“I just eat,” Thederick admitted in the season nine trailer. “It makes me feel [good]. ”
During his January 6 episode, Thederick admitted that the “best part” of his day is having the ice cream man arrive at his house.
“The treats make it worth pushing me to go outside, and that’s my daily practice,” Thederick said.
When the ice cream man arrived, Thederick received his order: three lemonades, two bags of hot Funyuns, two nutter butters, a strawberry shortcake, an ice cream sandwich and two fudge round pies.
“Ice cream is one of my favorites. This is how I start my breakfast … with ice cream. And at that point my day gets better. But the ice cream and snacks are just the beginning, ”explained Thederick as he enjoyed his strawberry dessert. “It’s good, but I get hungrier when I eat it.”

Since Thederick’s morning snack wasn’t enough to satisfy his appetite, he often ordered pizza as his first meal.
“I like pizza a lot and I eat pizza a lot,” he shared.
“I order a lot and say to myself, ‘You don’t have to eat it if you don’t want it,’ but when I get it, I’ll eat it all at once,” Thederick continued. “So I can have two full pizzas with two orders of wings and one order of cheese sandwich, but after I’m done you know that I’m still hungry and I have to think about what I’ll have next.”
At another moment, Thederick was seen struggling up the stairs before meeting a loved one, who shared his concern about the health problems Thederick was having due to his size.
“It is sad that you are not living to the best of your ability,” said the male friend.
Although Thederick appeared to be feeling defeated by his food addiction at times, he eventually got proactive about his health and began lifting weights when he went to the hospital during his weight loss journey.
“I have to stick with it and keep trying because I’m not a quitter,” Thederick said of his efforts.
It’s not entirely clear from recent social media photos whether Thederick hit his weight loss goals after filming season nine My 600 pound life. However, he seems to be thinner in his face, at least in his latest pictures.
Below are some headshots shared on Thederick’s Instagram account from October 2020 to December 2020.
