(Justloseitmatt) How I started Weightloss in 2021

Hey everyone, this is Matt or Justloseitmatt on TikTok.

I decided in January, as it was as good a time as any, to start losing weight. I decided also, to start documenting my journey of weight loss on TikTok because that’s what all the cool kids are doing.

Inspired by the likes of Lawrencetiktok90, I set out by creating a brand new TikTok account and started posting content, Up to 6 times a day of what I was eating, How I was feeling and anything I could think of regarding my weight loss.

I can hands-down tell you it was the best thing I’ve ever done, I haven’t gone viral, I don’t have millions of followers, but the people that do follow me have been such a huge help to keeping me on track, I can’t even begin to tell you.

I’m currently sitting on around 2800 followers after 5 weeks of posting. 187 videos in and 13lbs lost already, I’m loving every minute of it.

I hope to continue my journey documenting it on TikTok but I am also branching out to Youtube and Instagram as well, My hope is to build a nice little community of like-minded people who, like me, want to lose weight and have fun doing it.


Good morning everyone and thank you for 900 followers. I’ll go live at 1k. #caloriedeficit #weightloss #weightlossjourney #weightlossprogress

I’m not sure why, but the video above has been doing really well for me on TikTok gaining over 40,000 views and is probably responsible for me gaining nearly 3,000 followers within 5 weeks.

I do find the TikTok platform confusing though, I’m still learning how it works and what makes specific videos do well, but the main thing is I’m having lots of fun making short content that apparently, people love to see!
