My 600-lb Life certainly brings “reality” into the “real life” series, presenting the stories of people whose lives have been so affected by their weight that sometimes they have been unable to work, move or even wash.
With the help of surgeon Dr. Now and his ultra-strict diet and exercise plan, participants hope to lose enough weight to qualify for surgery so they can finally move on and achieve the quality of life they so desperately want and need. Often, things go perfectly.
However, some participants, like Bethany Stout, find the process too difficult and leave the My 600-lb Life programme without completing it. As Starcasm points out, Bethany Stout successfully worked with Dr. Now for eight months while participating in season 8 of the hit series, eventually dropping from 608 pounds to 496 pounds.
However, just a few months later, he was back over 500 pounds and eventually quit the process after growing increasingly frustrated.
Where Is Bethany Stout From My 600-Lb Life Now?
As The Cinemaholic points out, medical professional Bethany Stout returned home to lose weight herself after taking part in My 600-lb Life. And she succeeded, dropping a significant amount judging by her Instagram.
Reportedly, Bethany Stout lost a remarkable 150 pounds thanks to everything she learned from Dr. Now. She regularly maintains two Facebook accounts, one of which provides personal updates on her journey, while the other, Parenting In Progress, is, as the name suggests, about childcare. According to a post on her personal Facebook page from March 2021, she also still works in healthcare.
She added: “We are all happy and healthy and loving our new life,” which certainly seems to be the case. “The ‘My 600-lb Life’ star faced considerable criticism from viewers after her episode originally aired, as Starcasm suggests, but it seems that now that she’s come out of her weight loss, she has a lot of fans behind her. Given her positive attitude and incredible dedication, it seems the sky is the limit.
