Even the best weight loss program can feel impossible to stick to! That’s why we really have to admire the great lengths the people in TLC’s My 600-lb Life went to for weight loss. Many shed hundreds of pounds but others fell back into old habits. We’re here to show you what happened post show for these courageous people.
Ashley Reyes (668 lbs)
Fearing her husband was going to leave, Ashley Reyes signed up for the show. With exercise and dieting alone, she shed 50 lbs easily. Then, with gastric bypass, she lost 255 lbs! Many speculate it took skin removal and plastic surgery to tighten up her skin post weight loss. Nowadays, she feels a lot better and went on her first date with her husband in a year!
Angel (600 lbs)
It was life or death for the 42 year old when Angel first started the show. Between her lymphedema and other health issues, critics doubted even the best weight loss program could save her. Finally, after recognizing the gravity of the situation, Angel pulled through and opted for weight loss surgery. This helped her shed 309 lbs!
