There are many weight loss reality shows out there, but there is only one “My 600-lb Life“. The long-running TLC series continues to be popular because its irresistible hook is that the overweight participants work harder than ever to save their lives.
It’s hugely uplifting, even when the stars get frustrated or give up, especially considering that Dr. Now, hosts the show. A no-nonsense surgeon with a rigorous diet and exercise plan ready, he prepares eager patients for much-needed weight-loss surgery.
What’s most impressive about Dr. Now’s programme is that it’s tailored to each individual, so it’s entirely up to them to complete it.
Most of the participants in ‘My 600-lb Life‘ probably have deeper problems than just overeating, and in the case of Tammy Patton in season 9, she had suffered a particularly traumatic upbringing. As The Cinemaholic points out, her father was a drug addict and after her family moved to Texas to start a new life, Tammy Patton became addicted to food.
By the time she graduated from high school, the Californian weighed more than 300 pounds. Patton’s mother never restricted her food intake, even though she realised her daughter was struggling.
What Is My 600-lb Life Star Tammy Patton Doing Today?
According to The Cinemaholic, Tammy managed to lose a staggering 126 kilos during Dr. Now, so she was clearly serious about losing weight and changing her life for good. The dedicated mum was determined to increase her mobility so that she would be less dependent on family help. As Starcasm reports, Tammy Patton has kept fans up to date with her impressive weight-loss journey via Facebook, where she often posts milestones along with adorable photos of her adorable grandchildren.
Thanks to Dr. Now, she learned how to keep her food addiction under control, and after taking part in My 600-lb Life, Tammy Patton has put everything she’s learned into practice and shares it with fans.
On his dedicated YouTube channel, the former reality star often talks about healthy eating, exercise and many other aspects of his incredible journey. She has continued to lose weight at a reasonable pace, even doubling her total losses.
Today, he’s expected to weigh closer to 350 pounds, which would be a whopping overall weight loss of 250 pounds – and hugely impressive, no matter how you look at it. Full body shots support this claim.
