She then decided she “had to do something or she wouldn’t last much longer”, but admitted she had started eating more, even when she was full. By the time he was 33, he was back to 500 pounds. When she turned to Dr. Now for help, her weight-loss journey got off to a slow start, as she lost 47 pounds in the first few months.
She had dropped from a peak weight of 658 pounds to 418 pounds after weight loss surgery. Holly then lost a whopping 240 pounds, making her one of the most successful cast members of My 600-lb Life in Season 7.
Holly Hager appeared on the show “My 600-lb Life” in season 7 episode 5. She’s from Houston, Texas, so she wasn’t far from Dr. Now’s clinic there, compared to many of the other stars on the show who have to make frequent trips to see her. She disclosed that she initially lost weight after her first surgery at the age of 32, which she had after separating from her first husband, and ended up down to 338 pounds, but after her poor eating habits resumed, she eventually gained the weight back.
At the age of 38, Holly Hager weighed over 650 lb. She told the cameras, “I wish I could change it all, but I can’t stop eating,” but was determined to lose enough weight to drastically improve her life.
