Where Is Mercedes Cephas From My 600-Lb Life Now?

When someone weighs over 600 kilos, it’s often due to overeating issues. TLC’s My 600-lb Life showcases this. Participants often require therapy for past abuse experiences.

In season seven, Tiffany Barker shared a heartbreaking childhood story. Her father’s verbal abuse led her to seek comfort in food. Mercedes Cephas, in the same season, faced a similar narrative. Her father’s abuse pushed her towards a food addiction.

Mercedes started her episode at over 770 pounds, making her one of Dr. Now’s heaviest patients in Austin, Texas.

By the end, she shed 81 pounds, a step forward, but short of the needed weight loss for surgery. Mercedes cited various obstacles hindering her strict health routine post-show.

What’s Mercedes Cephas doing now? Her social profiles are quiet. Her latest Facebook post was in July 2020. It’s unclear if she embraced Dr. Now’s advice.
