My 600-Lb Life spoilers reveal that fans are curious about what happened to brothers John and Lonnie Hambrick. They first appeared in the show’s eighth season, and as fans watch later seasons on streaming services such as Discovery+, they have maintained their weight.
When the two brothers entered the show, they knew they had to lose weight to become healthier and live better. Both had reached 600 pounds and at that point they knew life would become miserable, and it did. John could no longer sleep in the same bed as his wife because of his weight and had serious problems walking.
Lonnie Hambrick also suffered when his weight was so great. He told the cameras that the pain was “unbearable.” The brothers attributed their weight gain to their childhood, and the way they coped with those memories was to overeat. Food had become the way to cope with emotions and they could not stop. They needed help and wanted Dr. Now to help them.
