The world is an interesting place and it has interesting people. While there are many people who are simply uncomfortable with the idea of TLC sharing an intrusive look into the personal lives and health struggles of people who are struggling immensely, there are more fans who love to sit back and watch people like Bianca Hayes struggle with their weight, food addiction and life on shows like My 600-lb Life, and that’s why shows like this are successful.
People can’t stop watching, and the world continues to have people who are happy to share their personal struggles with the world – probably to help someone else in the same situation to make a positive change in their life. Bianca Hayes has been away from journalism for a while since her own season of the show aired.
When she first appeared on this reality show, she shared with the world that she struggles with food addiction. When she feels depressed, sad, upset, or any emotion she can’t cope with or handle, she turns to food. He has been doing this all his life and it has led him to excessive weight gain and ill health, not just from being overweight but from morbid obesity.
She is now in her early 30s, but she remembers being a child watching her mother enjoy her drinking habits, and as a young child eating to feel better as she watched her mother ruin her life – it didn’t help that her mother plied her with food so she could drink in peace. By the age of seven, he weighed 200 kilos. What a heartbreaking situation for a child.
It wasn’t long before he started to feel bad about his appearance and noticed how other people noticed his appearance. Her doctor diagnosed her with high blood pressure, but her own mother continued to ignore her daughter’s condition and health problems. Instead, she married a man who sat and enjoyed alcohol with her, so this young girl could eat whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted, and no one stopped her.
Now in her 30s, she is a mother of two and weighs over 600 kilos. She made the decision to take part in the programme to get the help she needed to lose weight and get well, after realising she was living in constant fear that she would die from her poor health, which would leave her own children without their mother. Such heartache tore at her and she knew it was time to seek help.
What Is My 600-lb Life Star Bianca Hayes Doing Today?
We saw during her appearance on the show that her doctor was hesitant to operate on her because she had already had a gastric bypass. Because of the significant scar tissue following the previous operation, he asked her to lose 50 kilos. He did. Then the doctor asked her to move to Houston from Tennessee to be closer, and she and the father of her children ended their relationship.
She continued to exercise and eat better, but the stress began to get the better of her and she stopped losing weight. The doctor then encouraged her to see a therapist and continue to work on her weight loss, and she would see him again in a few months.
Once her emotional life was a little better, she might consider surgery again. During this time she saw a therapist, ate well and continued to exercise. He lost about 50 kilos more and had a partial bypass. Since she has lost another 50 pounds, and she continues to work hard to see how to get healthier.
So far, he has lost over 156 pounds and he is pushing himself to keep going. She’s seeing her therapist, she’s working and spending time with her kids. She and her son now exercise together and she loves it. For her, it’s a chance to bond with him and do her part as a mother. We have high hopes that she will continue her weight loss journey successfully and maybe it will make her life better.
