Man Loses 195 Pounds To Give His Dog “The Life She Deserves”

For most people, losing any weight at all is extremely hard. It takes a lot of physical and mental commitment. For one man, the love of a dog was enough to motivate him to lose 195 pounds in just one year.

Jarred, or @jaycrushesit as he is known on Tik Tok, recently posted a video displaying his drastic weight loss. The video was less about him, though, and more about how his best friend Layla, a Golden Retriever, inspired him to take this incredible journey.

As @jaycrushesit captioned his Tik Tok video:

“What’s the best part of losing 195 pounds over the last year? Being able to give her the life she deserves.”

After losing all that weight, Jarred has been able to be much more active. His video shows him taking Layla on various outdoor adventures, from the beach to the park to a rocky hike.

Jarred put it simply to Newsweek:

“One day I decided I wanted a different life, so I got to work. Now I am able to snowboard and surf again and give my dog the life she deserves.”

He previously referred to Layla as his “ride or die,” and also included in his video that “she is [his] biggest fan.” There are so many reasons to have a dog in your life, but their ability to make us healthier is certainly a good one.

Layla is Jarred’s adventure buddy, and his commitment to improving his health for her will allow them many more opportunities.

An Extremely Supportive Response

More so than other social media apps, Tik Tok is known for having many positive and supportive inner communities. Thousands of other Tik Tok-ers jumped into the comments to praise both Jarred and Layla.
