My 600-lb Life” immediately became a household name when it was launched on the TLC network. Each episode of the reality series follows the life of a morbidly obese person over the course of a year and his or her efforts to get well for good.
Each person in the series is first put on a strict diet and exercise programme to see if they can lose weight on their own. If these efforts prove successful, Dr. Now will then approve them for weight loss surgery.
Since “My 600-lb Life” has been on the air for almost a decade, fans have seen first-hand that many of the show’s participants find it very difficult to maintain the results they have managed to achieve. In fact, most of the participants end up falling back into their previous unhealthy habits. Over the years, there have been a few updated episodes that allow fans to see where certain individuals are on their journey – and whether they have reverted back to their old lifestyle or have managed to maintain their weight loss.
At the end of November 2021, viewers were introduced to Mike Meginness for the 10th season of My 600-lb Life. According to IMDb, Mike Meginness developed unhealthy habits after his dreams of football stardom fell by the wayside.
After gaining hundreds of pounds, going through a divorce and moving into his parents’ house, Mike Meginness knew he had to get back to a manageable weight to help care for his children and regain his well-being.
Determined to lose 500 pounds, Meginness moved to Houston in the summer of 2021, before undergoing weight loss surgery. After she had the surgery in September 2021, Meginness revealed that she weighed about 510 pounds, several hundred pounds less than her starting weight. During the last few minutes of the show “My 600-lb Life,” Mike Meginness admitted that she is determined to not only continue to lose weight, but also to work hard to implement the healthy habits she has learned.
