Aaron Washer was one of the stars of the 12th episode of season 7 of My 600-Lb Life, and since leaving the show, fans have wondered how his life has been going. Although Aaron was not in poor health when he decided to seek help from Dr. Now to control his weight loss, he was in poor shape physically and mentally. He weighed well over 700 pounds and was ashamed to be cared for by his 76-year-old father.
As Aaron peaked at over 700 pounds, his eating habits had immobilised him and changes had to be made before he would eat himself to death. Aaron confessed during “My 600-Lb Life” that his life was pure torture because he was in constant pain.
This, coupled with the fact that he was physically unable to care for his father, drove him to make the necessary changes in his life. At the end of his participation in the show, Aaron ended up losing well over 300 pounds, making him one of the most successful cases this season. However, life hasn’t been smooth sailing since leaving the reality series. According to Looper, Aaron lost his father not long after leaving My 600-Lb Life.
My 600-lb Life: Where Is Aaron Washer, The Star Of ‘My 600-lb Life,’ Now?
Because his operation was a success, Aaron was able to lose enough weight to look after his father on his own. The star of My 600-Lb Life posted many frequent updates on his father’s health on his official Facebook page, which has since been deleted. In April 2019, she revealed that her dad has a foot infection and needs to have a toe removed to heal.
However, just two weeks after making this update, her father passed away. She informed the public through her official Facebook page. This was the last post Aaron made before he went to delete the page for good.
Unfortunately, 2019 was a tough year for Aaron, but despite all the downsides, he did have some positives. Most importantly, Aaron, a former patient of Dr. Now’s, started a full-time job as a caregiver and medical technician at an assisted living facility, and also started a new relationship.
Although Aaron deleted his official Facebook page, he still maintained his personal page. From time to time, he drops updates about his life through his personal profile. In October 2020, Aaron posted a picture of his marriage license.
Despite all the obstacles in his way, Aaron now seems more determined than ever to pursue a healthier life. While he doesn’t necessarily share updates on his routine and weight-loss journey, it’s more than evident from his Facebook posts that the reality series alum is living a healthier and more fulfilling life. Fans and well-wishers of My 600-Lb Life can only hope that life continues in a positive direction for him.
