DESCRIPTION:
(from TLC's press release, December 2013) MY 600-lb LIFE returns to TLC following the lives of eight people - each weighing over 600 pounds - through their year long journey as they collectively try to lose thousands of pounds. MY 600-lb LIFE premieres January 7 at 9PM (ET/PT) on TLC. Each sixty minute episode 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 a dangerous gastric bypass surgery in an effort to save their lives and change their world forever. Their motivations for making the drastic change vary - some do it for their loved ones, others to be productive members of society, but all of them have one thing in common - they want to be free from a life trapped in a body. MY 600-lb LIFE documents the life-saving, but traumatic experience of surgery, the ups and downs of struggling with addiction and dependence, the transformation from being completely dependent to gaining a sense of self worth and the inevitable impact - positive and negative- that change has on close 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.
