Sadly, Steven’s childhood was filled with misery and agony. His mother was abusive to him and his siblings while his father was an alcoholic and always absent.

The struggles the YouTuber faced when he was young were heartbreaking. And to cope with the trauma, he indulged himself in food, often binge eating. His eating habits made him overweight, which caused a lot of health issues when Steven grew up.

Due to his unstable childhood, Steven suffered from depression. At the same time, being an overweight guy, his confidence and self-esteem were very low. His problems always held him back in life. So much so that he was rejected from over 200 jobs due to his morbid obesity, when he weighed nearly 550 pounds.

YouTube became his escape from the challenges he faced. After being famous on the social media platform, he fought all his demons, including his weight.

In the process of losing weight, he underwent gastric bypass surgery in August of 2016. Due to the operation and a change in diet, he lost more than 150 pounds. He mentioned in his video on YouTube titled WEIGHT LOSS UPDATE… that his targeted weight was 250 pounds.
