‘My 600-lb. Life’ Episode Guide (April 27): Joe Weight Loss Update

“Joe” (04/27/16) – In this “Where Are They Now?” special, the program provides an update on 30-year-old Joe, a man whose weight has ballooned to 800 pounds. Joe is jobless and is barely able to leave his own home. Now that he is in love and considering marriage, can he turn his life around?

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.

We’ll meet Nikki Webster, who at 33-years-old weighs 650-lbs and her food addiction is killing her, but she feels powerless to stop the fast food binges. Ashley Bratcher, a 26-year-old mother of a five-year-old son, weighs 725-lbs. Her son is one of her primary caregivers, bringing her food and helping with daily chores. And, Sean Milliken was traumatized by his parent’s divorce leading him to turn to food for comfort. Sean’s weight has reached a dangerous level: 900-lbs, barely being able to stand for 30 seconds. In a high risk gamble to save their lives, MY 600-LB LIFE follows 12 Americans as they travel to Houston, TX in desperate hopes to undergo surgery.

“My 600-lb. Life” is produced by Megalomedia for TLC.
