The Most Dramatic Transformations Ever Seen On My 600-lb Life

The Most Dramatic Transformations Ever Seen On My 600-lb Life

For years, viewers have watched TLC’s My 600-Pound
Life, witnessing morbidly obese patients completely transform their bodies and lives. The patients all start out hundreds of pounds
overweight, with the devastating health and emotional problems that come with that. But all of them have something in common — a
desire to change. Dr. Nowzaradan – or “Dr. Now,” as his patients
call him – is a bariatric surgeon who performs weight loss surgeries and coaches his patients
along the road to a healthy weight. While most patients on the show lose weight,
here are some of the most stunning success stories to be chronicled on My 600-Lb Life. Amber Rachdi At age 23, Amber Rachdi appeared on the show,
weighing 657 pounds and saying that she felt like a, quote, “nasty, yucky monster.” “I don’t like being this person. I don’t like being this size.” Her legs carried a great deal of her weight,
and, as a result, she said she couldn’t stand for more than 30 minutes at a time. After undergoing gastric bypass surgery with
Dr. Now, she ended up getting down to 377 pounds within a year — but she didn’t stop
there. She ultimately lost over 400 pounds and kept
it off, profiling her journey with glamorous pinup-style selfies on Facebook and Instagram. Brittani Fulfer At only 5 feet, 1 inch tall, Brittani Fulfer
started out weighing 605 pounds. She was so motivated to change that she and
her husband moved to Texas in order to be near Dr. Now’s office, where she underwent
weight loss surgery. According to Women’s Health magazine, she
lost almost 400 pounds and dropped down to 222 pounds. She told the magazine that she is cherishing
every moment of her new life, saying that she had, quote, “no idea [her] life was going
to be this amazing.” Melissa D. Morris Starting her journey at 653 pounds, Melissa
D. Morris was forced to ride around in a scooter to carry out basic tasks like grocery shopping. After undergoing weight loss surgery, she
dropped down to a stunning 157 pounds! And to make things even sweeter, after 12
years of trying to get pregnant, she finally became a mom, welcoming three children over
the years. Speaking to TLC in 2017, Melissa shared some
advice for people who might want to change their lives like she did, saying, “I advise others that the first step towards
a healthier life is identifying what you’re doing wrong. You must first figure that out because you
cannot fix what you don’t acknowledge.” Christina Phillips At only 22 years old, Christina Phillips weighed
673 pounds. According to her, she only left the house
at 3 a.m. when she was unlikely to see people. “I’m trapped inside this body that I don’t
wanna be in.” With the help of Dr. Now, Phillips had weight
loss surgery and experienced a shocking transformation. In fact, her weight loss ended up being so
fast and so extreme that the doctor advised her to gain 15 pounds in order to be at a
more healthy weight. In 2017, she told Women’s Health that she
weighed in at 171 pounds and said, “My life has changed so much since the weight
loss! I can do things I never imagined possible… I’ve been able to try indoor skydiving. […] [And] I can walk miles without getting
tired.” Nikki Webster At 649 pounds, Nikki Webster’s weight was
affecting her career in costume design. Luckily, she had strong support from her family,
and she was able to undergo gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Now. “That’s 455 lb weight loss.” “That number is breathtaking to me.” In 2017, she told People magazine, “It’s hard to imagine now how I used to live. It’s just become so vastly different. […] It has been the hardest two years of
my life, but it’s been the most victorious and exciting.” In 2018, Nikki revealed on Facebook that she’d
gotten married, writing, “I kind of got married. He’s the absolute best, and I honestly couldn’t
be more happy…It’s been a busy few months.” Paula Jones When Paula Jones decided to lose weight, she
had a tragic yet powerful motivation — her husband had passed away from weight-related
complications, weighing over 600 pounds. A year later, Jones herself weighed 542 pounds
and worried that she too would suffer a life-threatening complication from obesity, leaving her four
children on their own. Jones moved her family from Georgia to Texas
in order to have surgery with Dr. Now. According to Woman’s World, she experienced
amazing results, ultimately losing 400 pounds! The mag reported that her relationship with
her kids has also improved, with Jones saying, “I can be more active with them. I’ve learned how to be emotionally healthy
as well as physically healthy.” Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

    This is one of the most inspirational videos I’ve ever seen
    about weight loss. At my heaviest, I at one time weighed 250 pounds.  I’ve yo-yo dieted all my life, struggling with compulsive eating.  As with any
    addiction, it is extremely difficult to change to a better lifestyle but thanks
    to this wonderful doctor and others like him, people who are seemingly
    hopelessly overweight can now get help. 
    Even with surgery, it is still a challenge to eat healthy and stay away
    from the foods you love.  Especially in a
    society that throws messages at you constantly to both eat whatever you want
    but you’re not worthwhile unless you’re thin.  All these attractive women are amazing! And I
    salute them. I’m still trying to keep my weight down. It’s something that never
    really goes away. But once an individual can master their diet, it’s fantastic
    how a whole new world of wonderful possibilities can open up.  Not everyone can do it although everyone deserves respect at any size.  But human
    nature being what it is, it’s much easier to live in society if you weigh less.
    Coincidentally I weighed myself before going online. I am now around 130 pounds. 
    But believe me it’s a fight every day to keep the pounds off.  Best wishes to all who try and congratulations to all that succeed!

  • Yolanda Lopez

    I’m sure it’s easy to get a kick start with that surgery .

  • goku son

    Why do all these people have disproportionately large cheekbones. No offense

  • Susan Chisena

    It’s so sick that we have to cut out 85% of your stomach and re route it to bypass most of your intestines. Because of this your at risk for stomach, colon cancer, osteoporosis , addiction swaps, Dumping syndrome , medications not working correctly , daily supplements and then pray that you don’t gain most of it all of it back. I am 90 pounds overweight but hell I’ll lose it as it’s a freakin mind game, the Government allowing GMO and food that MAKES us fat. Inspiring video…However, you can do it all on your own. Surgery is a MAJOR life changing situation that will effect your body mostly adversely for the rest of your life. Please, you don’t need that “Tool” you need a nutritionist, a therapist, and motivation. Keep your healthy organs like God intended. It’s sickening how much $$$$$$ is spent on Bariatric surgery….and trust me they don’t tell you all the significant risk. Unless your going to die within a year or you are not ambulatory…..Please, don’t do the surgery

  • anna celeste

    I don’t know what to do. I’m 5’2 13 and only 103 lbs but I don’t look super skinny bc of my muscle

  • a normal channel

  • Matthew Norva

    When I was 15 I used to weighed 198 pounds and now I'm 16 I weigh 172 pounds

  • Emily e

    i need to lose abt 25 lbs to be skinny and i don’t think i can do it 😭

  • Karlee Meier

    Don’t make fun of fat people at the gym, they’re trying to improve themselves just like you.

  • Cooper Tichelbaut

    This is actual body positivity, not the stuff where they say obesity is healthy for you. There is a difference than being slightly overweight and being close to dying. I honestly think that people shouldn't feel discouraged because of their bodies, but if you are about to die, the weight needs to come off

  • lulabell 79

    Ummm Brittani Fulfer lost down from 605 pounds to 222 pounds? It was more than that! At 5' 1" tall, you'd definitely still be able to see 222 lbs on her. I'd be surprised if she even weighed 150 lbs in those "after" pics!!!

  • rosie

    Cant this also go into kg's

  • New Life

    The 50 pounds I need to lose seems like nothing now

  • BBoiSnakeSauce

    I was 25 pounds overweight just two months ago. Then, I met a pretty girl who motivated me to lose the weight (she never told me to, meeting her made me want to). I lost the 25 pounds and then she stopped talking to me. At least I lost the weight xD

  • Doobl Princess

    😭😭 good job guys

  • squirrelbuddi

    A lot of soft bragging and slights in these comments. :/

  • simona s

    I'm shook that so many people weight 600 lb at their 20s.

  • MrRoztoc

    Impressing stories indeed.
    But to be honest, how can you gain 200+kg or 440+lbs respectively? I'm 1,80m/ 5"9' tall and my weight is 90kg/ 198lbs and I feel quite fat myself. After quitting smoking almost four years ago I gained 10kg/ 22lbs :/

  • Friedhelm

    Americans you need netter food
