Buckle in Rain Men, cause Amberlynn has done a loooot of weigh-ins over her youtube career.

So we’ll start with the overall graph, shall we? The big picture:

Each vertical line is a month. The darker vertical lines are years. Horizontal lines are every 10 lb.

The start of this graph is mostly based on AL’s retelling of her weight history so it’s only a ballpark estimate. She says that the lowest weight she remembers being was 290 lb at a mere 11 years old. Tragic.

In one of her oldest videos, she also claimed to have gained 100 pounds in 9 months when she was 16, which took her to what she called her highest ever weight for a long time, 420 lbs.

So that’s the spike that you see in 2007.

She maintained at 420 lb for years, according to her, before losing the fabled 89 elbees that the ancient scholars speak of in the year before she started vlogging.

After that, she gained back about 40 pounds the next year, which takes us to the start of our gorl’s youtube journey!

The proceeding numbers are better visualized by zooming in a bit:

I made this a 6-year graph instead of a 5-year one because 6 years ago is almost exactly the point when she started regaining following the legendary 89 elbees.

She started 2013 off at her lowest weight since high school, which was 331 lb. Her girlfriend at the time was Krystal. Her gain wasn’t quite so fast then as it is now, and she had small spurts of short-term weight loss while they were together. I’m eyeballing her gaining pace as 30-40 lb/year with Krystal.

But when her & Krystal broke up, you can see a giant spike in 2015… coincidence? I think not.

She then got with Dusty & didn’t seem to weigh in as much, but kept up a steady gaining pace of about 50 lb/year.

She actually seemed to be turning things around for a bit after her & Destiny split - losing 20 lb in half a year, but she gained it back after shacking up with Becky in the latter half of 2017.

This is when Amberlynn REALLY started to put in work for her coveted spot on My 600 Pound Life.

Let’s zoom in again, shall we?

Here we see only the weigh-ins that Amberlynn reported last year.

I threw Becky’s weigh-ins up there as well just for shits cause they would often weigh-in together.

If we discard the initial New Year’s reading of 498 lb, her current gaining pace is 80-90 lb/year. She has doubled her previous pace.

And just because I know someone will be curious,

Spoiler: here is the same graph projected out until she hits 600 lb

Looks like June 25.

Excuse the autism, but I hope you guys found this as interesting as I did.
