Get ready for a svelte Gary Roberts. After two months and 24 days of CrossFit, he’s down about 70 lb. to right around 203 lb.
“I feel like worlds have gone by,” Roberts says. “I just want to get more fit, more healthy, so I don’t know where that final weight would be. It really doesn’t matter. I’m pretty much feeling mentally unstoppable right now.”
In Episode 7 of Killing the Fat Man—called “something happened, the last month”—Roberts is clearly a new man.
“I was offered sex two nights in a row,” he reveals. “I’ve been hit on (by) at least eight different people in the last three days. And there was a man in there.”
In this episode, we find Roberts in Portland, visiting his father. While there, Roberts takes him to CrossFit Stumptown, where the 67-year-old tells owner and head coach Tony Edgerton that he’s had triple-bypass surgery, aortic valve replacement and pacemaker implantation.
“I don’t know. I can’t describe it, how great I feel. And I’d love for other people to feel the same way,” Roberts explains. “Like, I think if my wife and my daughter—if I can get them on board to kind of go through the same thing, it wouldn’t feel so disconnected.”
