Milla Clark is a favorite of My 600-lb Life fans who have followed her progress in weight loss since she first appeared on the show in season 4. When we met her, she weighed 751 pounds and had struggled with her weight since childhood.
These days, after weight loss surgery, Dr. Now’s help, and a couple of health alerts that put her in the hospital, 51-year-old Milla Clark seems incredibly unrecognizable from where she started in Season 4.
Like many of the stars we see struggling with their weight on My 600-lb Life, Milla’s problematic relationship with food began when she was a little girl. “If we didn’t take that food, [my mother] would take it as rejection,” she explained about her mother who practically forced her and her brother to feed her.
“My sister was small and couldn’t finish her plate,” she continued. “And I secretly helped her with her plate so they wouldn’t be punished… At the same time, the food was my mother’s warmth to me. So I ate everything I was given. And I wanted more and more.”
We learned that her mother didn’t have “a ton of food all the time” and that contributed to why she wanted her children to eat “until they had enough. Then, when her husband and the father of her five children Elroy died two months after the shoot, Milla Clark was motivated to lose her extra weight.
Determined not to leave her five children orphaned, Milla Clark lost a total of 274 kilos through diet, exercise and gastric bypass surgery. But Milla had not yet finished getting into shape.
My 600-lb Life: See Milla Clark now, on the heels of her 51st birthday.
Milla Clark turned 51 on 24 June and kept fans informed of her progress on her Facebook page. “I know the world says 36″ 24″ 36″ But I don’t mind being 46″ 34″ 48″ at 50”, she recently posted as a caption to a photo on her page.
And although she was unable to provide more details about her weight loss “until after the show aired”, she revealed that she had lost the weight of “about 3 or 4 people”. Wow! Milla Clark is predictably positive about her social media account, where on her birthday she took the time to write, “I’m really grateful to God for keeping me for another year.
The photos of this Huntsville, Ala. weight loss progress of this Huntsville, Ala. resident must be seen to be believed, and we are so happy that Milla Clark is able to live her life these days. Earlier this month she wrote how grateful she was to her children who cared for her day after day. “Thank God they no longer have to take care of me,” she wrote. “Live your life, my children.”
We’re not crying, you’re crying! “Wow Milla,” wrote one of her followers. “I didn’t even recognize you!” We totally agree. Milla Clark is such an inspiration to anyone who needs to lose weight and a reminder that it’s never too late in life to pursue your dreams, become healthy or happy!
