My 600-lb Life: Where Is Cynthia Wells, The Star Of 'My 600-lb Life,' Now?

Cynthia Wells was one of the most controversial stars on My 600-lb Life. As a single mother juggling with five children, she experienced the stress of everyday life. Cynthia Wells’ weight replenished at 610 pounds, leaving her not only without motivation, but virtually unable to keep up with the needs of her children.

By adding insult to the injuries, she felt completely alone and even doing menacing tasks exhausted her. However, Cynthia Wells earned her reputation for being stubborn and in denial by refusing to follow Dr. Nowzaradan’s infamously strict diet and exercise program, even describing it as “bulls**t” before returning to her home in Oklahoma.

Though her weight loss stalled due to Cynthia Wells‘ unwillingness to accept responsibility for herself and the help of others, a follow-up episode in 2018 put her in a much better place, both mentally and physically (through Distractify). The busy mother of five also managed to fall back to 360 pounds, proving that she had the means to achieve her goals, if only she could get out of her own way.

Fortunately, Cynthia Wells has continued to work on her weight loss goals since her first show appearance. Heavy reports inspired her to get her life on track so she could be around to watch her kids grow up. And nowadays she’s happy to be more actively involved in their lives as they go to their dance recitals and more isn’t so hard anymore as Cynthia Wells has much more energy to participate.

Cynthia Wells’ ultimate goal is to lose enough weight to qualify for skin removal surgery. Her children insist on losing more weight as well, so she can stay healthier and stay close to them. According to Distractify, Wells has kept fans on Facebook up to date on her progress, although she tends to stay away from posting full body pictures. She’s still in Oklahoma City, too.

  1. Jiminy christmas, if i were that large and had the help of professionals, i would do it. But, i guess it has to be the right time for her mentally also… best of luck to you!

  2. Hollie,
    How rude and a bully can you be, behind the computer you feel brave. None of your business how many different men she has slept with. Who are you to judge her? Shame on you for being so judgemental and mean.

  3. Holly, she had 2 children of her own and adopted 3 children who suffered from broken bones and burns at the hands of their own dad! Just because she is black and a single parent doesn’t mean she has “baby daddies” you racist asshole!!!

  4. Why is it always assumed that A single mom with five kids has to have more than one relationship? There could be many different reasons such as divorce, abandonment, or that he was not good to be around her children or herself?!
    Please think before you comment!

  6. People at least watch the episode before you comment on anyone. Cynthia Wells took in 3 badly abused children. Ignorant people remarking about her birth control practices and can’t even get the truth before they form an opinion. I hope they all are on birth control.

  7. She actually took in her 3 little cousins when they were babies being abused before she gained all this weight and before she even had her own 2 biological children. So kudos to her for being a great person and congratulations for keeping at it!! She had to get there mentally and I’m proud she did.

  8. I know you better report better on my beat friend. She has made amazing progress and looks amazing! As far as full body pics, you must be mistaken because my girl has flaunted her success! You all should be ashamed. She is a amazingly special person and and anyone would be lucky to call her their friend!

  9. If you would actually watch the episode you would know that three of the kids are not hers — she took them in with them having broken ribs and in body casts after they were abused by someone.

  10. You go girl, you can do it. Little by little you’ll get there. And remember your biggest reason for living is your kids. God bless you.

  11. Yeah Holly sit down sis. Your judgement is not needed. None of that matters if you don’t have to worry about feeding her 5 kids. Period

  12. You just keep loosing those pounds princess, I am proud of you, keep up the awesome work, I have my brother and he got to 6** pounds, but he says it’s his fault, he’s a pastor, and he had his own business BUT then his wife got cancer, already 5 Brain operations and she is bedridden, yet my brother is loosing weight and also helping his wife, God richly bless you and keep you in the palm of his hand.

  13. Holli,
    Would’ve been nice if yo momma had swallowed or opted for birth control. Then we could have one less asshole sitting behind a keyboard spewing criticism about someone they don’t know. Are you jealous
