When Kyle White of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and his wife began working from home last year, they, like many Canadians, turned to Netflix and takeout to get through the uncertainty of the beginning of the pandemic, and the unusual amount of spare time that came with it.

(CNN)When Kyle White of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and his wife began working from home last year, they, like many Canadians, turned to Netflix and takeout to get through the uncertainty of the beginning of the pandemic, and the unusual amount of spare time that came with it.

"By no means did I set out last year and say I'm going to lose 150 pounds in one year," White said.

Right before the pandemic, White's doctor expressed concern about his weight and blood pressure, White said.

Losing a lot of weight fast can be detrimental to someone's health, but White says he regularly checked in with his doctor to make sure that didn't happen.

"That blew me away that I could see such tangible progress in a year and do it relatively safely," White said.

White said he thinks 220 to 230 pounds is a realistic goal for him, but he's not focused on the weight anymore.

He said at some point throughout the past year, his goals started changing from a number on a scale to how far and fast he could run.

"A hug is going to feel a lot different," White said.
