In TLC’s My 600-lb Life, we are given an insight into the weight-loss journey of several morbidly obese people. While Dr. Now’s careful supervision and guidance help them shed a few pounds before surgery, the individual weight-loss processes still require a lot of work and determination. Brittan Fulfer has had one of the toughest journeys, but she has conquered it uphill like a champ.
