Then, in the new series SKIN TIGHT, premiering Wednesday, January 6th at 10/9c, viewers will meet 12 Americans who have lost massive amounts of weight and are ready to undergo a full-body transformation through skin removal surgery. Each hour-long episode of MY 600-LB. LIFE tells the powerful story of one morbidly obese individual - many who are home bound, relying on care just to live day-to-day - as they make the courageous decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery. The popular series documents the life-saving, but traumatic experience of surgery, the ups and downs of struggling with addiction and dependence, and the inevitable impact that change has on personal relationships. High-risk surgery, addiction, dependency, fear, pain, helplessness, victory, pride - this story is as much about heart as it is about weight loss.
