TLC’s long-running weight-loss reality show My 600-lb Life deals mainly with extreme cases. The participants, who travel to Texas to seek help from the inimitable Dr. Now, are at the end of their rope and often depend on family members to assist them with the most basic of tasks, from washing to providing the incredible amount of food needed to satisfy their swelling appetites.
Many of them succeed, and through hard work and perseverance, they manage to qualify for weight loss surgery and change their lives forever. Dr. Now’s rigorous process doesn’t suit everyone, however, and over the years, several “My 600-pound Life” stars have given up when they found it too difficult to move forward. As The Cinemaholic notes, Gina Krasley didn’t give up, but the New Jersey native found it hard to see results nonetheless.
With long-standing problems with dieting due to an abusive upbringing, Krasley only managed to lose a total of 50 pounds. Has the former reality star made any progress on her weight loss journey since then?
Where Is Gina Krasley From My 600-Lb Life Now?
As The Cinemaholic notes, Gina Krasley previously deleted all of her social media accounts after it was revealed that she had at one point been involved in the adult industry. However, prior to the deletion, the My 600-lb Life star appeared to have lost weight judging by her photos. She was also one of the first cast members to sue production company Megalomedia for mistreating her time on the hit series.
Starcasm advises that one of her biggest complaints surrounded allegedly contrived scenes of a woman from New Jersey overeating, which seemed to suggest that Gina was failing to keep to her strict diet, which she claims was not the case. In January 2021, the former reality star reappeared online, proudly sharing on Instagram that she had dropped from 610 pounds to 449 pounds in two years.
By April, Gina Krasley had dropped to “300” on Instagram. As Starcasm suggests, she boasted an incredible weight loss of 228 pounds at 379 pounds and counting. Fans, however, remain skeptical as the controversial star was not successful with the Dr. Now plan.
However, judging by the full body picture posted on Instagram to celebrate her 30th birthday, Gina Krasley looks noticeably different than on the show. The former reality star also shared a YouTube video showing her slow but steady weight loss from 700 pounds to 400 pounds. Sadly, however, it seems that Gina is no longer with partner Beth, with whom he appeared on the show. For now, he seems to be focusing on his health.
