My 600-lb Life: Where Is Alicia Kirgan, The Star Of ‘My 600-lb Life,’ Now?

When we first met Alicia Kirgan on My 600-lb Life in 2018, she weighed 622 pounds and feared that her longtime boyfriend, Tim Carter, would leave her because of her relentless struggles with food addiction.

“Alicia doesn’t want to do anything at all. She just wants to sit in front of the TV and eat,” Tim said at the time. “It’s frustrating because we have a life together… It’s like she’s a completely different person and our relationship has become stagnant.”

The two-hour follow-up, a year after Alicia’s first meeting with Dr. Younan Nowzaradan (aka Dr. Now) and seven months post her initial weight loss surgery, revealed a significant drop to 424 pounds. She committed to gym workouts thrice weekly.

At the episode’s end, Alicia, having actively lost weight for two years, shed a remarkable 366 pounds. She confessed to Dr. Now that she hadn’t been 250 pounds since her school days.

Alicia shared with the camera, “My whole world has completely changed,” Alicia told the camera. “I feel more independent than ever, and I’m starting to understand who I am and all the things I want out of life, so I couldn’t be happier.”

Dr. Now mentioned that Alicia might be ready for skin removal surgery at the next appointment if she stays on track. That’s another 20 kilos she won’t have to carry.

Alicia opened up, “I’m really excited because, for so many years, I felt like this horrible creature that everyone was whispering about and laughing about in secret because of how big I was,” confessed Alicia . “But now, for the first time in my life, I feel good about myself.”

During the episode, the landscaper’s behavior raised concerns, making Dr. Now worry that Tim might be hindering Alicia’s progress and independence. It was disheartening to hear Tim speak disrespectfully about Alicia during her appointments.

Dr. Now asked Tim if he liked Alicia’s growing independence. Tim replied, “Well, she got a little chatty. But yeah, as long as she keeps losing weight, I’m happy, man. I’ll take that smart mouth, then.”

Alicia expressed disappointment in Tim’s portrayal in a Facebook post just before the episode aired. She defended Tim, emphasizing his love and support amidst the show’s portrayal.

Alicia added, “I honestly don’t care at all what anyone says or thinks about me, but Tim has made so many sacrifices and worked so hard to make this possible, just to drag his name and image through the mud in the name of profit. It’s really shameful.”
