Carlton and Shantel Oglesby, the brother and sister duo from season 8 of My 600-lb Life, sought help from renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan to combat their morbid obesity. They were not alone on their journey, as Shantel’s husband and children and Carlton’s girlfriend, Monica, accompanied them to Houston. After six months of following a strict diet and exercise regimen, Carlton had lost 243 pounds, and Shantel was down 215 pounds, qualifying them for weight loss surgery.
But the question remains: have they been able to maintain their weight loss? It appears that both Carlton and Shantel have continued to make progress since the show’s filming. Carlton has lost over 500 pounds and is now an advocate for weight loss and healthy living, regularly sharing his journey on social media. Shantel has also continued to lose weight and has undergone weight loss surgery to help her on her journey.
What Is Shantel & Carlton Up To After My 600-lb Life?
Shantel Oglesby, the My 600-Lb Life star, has continued her weight loss journey and has even created a YouTube channel called Shantel Sheds the Weight to share her progress and inspire others. Her latest Facebook update shows that she is still keeping up with her weight loss, and she seems to be committed to improving her spiritual and physical self.
In addition to her weight loss journey, Shantel has also ventured into entrepreneurship with her beauty line, Boujee Besties Beauty. Her Instagram page promotes her products, including body scrubs and sunglasses, and her business Facebook page has shipped over 5.6K orders. She also sells self-defense items for people on the go.
While Shantel is focused on her health and business ventures, her brother Carlton seems to have taken a step back from social media. His Instagram page hasn’t been updated since 2020, but his bio suggests that he is still dedicated to living a healthy life.
My 600-Lb Life stars Carlton and Monica have recently announced their engagement several years after their appearance on the TLC series. Carlton’s Facebook profile picture was updated with a photograph of him and Monica holding hands, with a note that read, “She said yes.”
The news of their engagement is heartwarming, especially considering the inspiring journey that Carlton and his sister Shantel went through on My 600-Lb Life. The duo sought help from Dr. Nowzaradan and worked hard to lose weight, with the support of each other and their family members. Their journey has been an inspiration to many struggling with obesity, showing that with hard work and dedication, positive changes are possible.
It’s heartwarming to see that despite the challenges they faced, Carlton and Monica were able to find love and support in each other. Their engagement is a testament to their commitment to each other and to their personal growth.
