Plot Synopsis

MY 600-LB LIFE documents the struggles and triumphs of four individuals who initially weigh more than 600 pounds, and then take a seven-year journey to change their lives after undergoing gastric bypass surgery. While these four individuals try to achieve their ideal weight and begin to regain control of their lives, they find that the battle is as mental as it is physical. They must deal with the highs and lows of confronting their addiction and emotional issues, while transforming their relationships with loved ones, family and friends. Whether they're motivated by love, a high-school reunion or a goal of owning a childcare facility, each episode highlights one person's struggles to become less dependent on others and improve their sense of self worth.
Immediately following an encore presentation of Season 1 from 4-8pm ET/PT on Tuesday, January 7, 2014, TLC aired the Season 2 premiere of MY 600-LB LIFE at 9pm ET/PT. The season opener followed Zsalynn, once known as the "Fat Girl Rock Star," who married a man who loves large women, but now she needs to lose weight to be the mother her daughter deserves. This series chronicles the lives of seven other people in Season 2: Christina (23 years old; South Haven, MS); Chuck (45; Beaumont, TX); Tara (35; Lafayette, LA); Penny (46; Atlanta, GA); Paula (39; Atlanta, GA); James (38; Frankston, TX); and Olivia (46; Cicero, IL).
