The Most Dramatic Transformations Ever Seen On My 600-lb Life

For years, viewers have watched TLC’s My 600-Pound
Life, witnessing morbidly obese patients completely transform their bodies and lives. The patients all start out hundreds of pounds
overweight, with the devastating health and emotional problems that come with that. But all of them have something in common — a
desire to change. Dr. Nowzaradan – or “Dr. Now,” as his patients
call him – is a bariatric surgeon who performs weight loss surgeries and coaches his patients
along the road to a healthy weight. While most patients on the show lose weight,
here are some of the most stunning success stories to be chronicled on My 600-Lb Life. Amber Rachdi At age 23, Amber Rachdi appeared on the show,
weighing 657 pounds and saying that she felt like a, quote, “nasty, yucky monster.” “I don’t like being this person. I don’t like being this size.” Her legs carried a great deal of her weight,
and, as a result, she said she couldn’t stand for more than 30 minutes at a time. After undergoing gastric bypass surgery with
Dr. Now, she ended up getting down to 377 pounds within a year — but she didn’t stop
there. She ultimately lost over 400 pounds and kept
it off, profiling her journey with glamorous pinup-style selfies on Facebook and Instagram. Brittani Fulfer At only 5 feet, 1 inch tall, Brittani Fulfer
started out weighing 605 pounds. She was so motivated to change that she and
her husband moved to Texas in order to be near Dr. Now’s office, where she underwent
weight loss surgery. According to Women’s Health magazine, she
lost almost 400 pounds and dropped down to 222 pounds. She told the magazine that she is cherishing
every moment of her new life, saying that she had, quote, “no idea [her] life was going
to be this amazing.” Melissa D. Morris Starting her journey at 653 pounds, Melissa
D. Morris was forced to ride around in a scooter to carry out basic tasks like grocery shopping. After undergoing weight loss surgery, she
dropped down to a stunning 157 pounds! And to make things even sweeter, after 12
years of trying to get pregnant, she finally became a mom, welcoming three children over
the years. Speaking to TLC in 2017, Melissa shared some
advice for people who might want to change their lives like she did, saying, “I advise others that the first step towards
a healthier life is identifying what you’re doing wrong. You must first figure that out because you
cannot fix what you don’t acknowledge.” Christina Phillips At only 22 years old, Christina Phillips weighed
673 pounds. According to her, she only left the house
at 3 a.m. when she was unlikely to see people. “I’m trapped inside this body that I don’t
wanna be in.” With the help of Dr. Now, Phillips had weight
loss surgery and experienced a shocking transformation. In fact, her weight loss ended up being so
fast and so extreme that the doctor advised her to gain 15 pounds in order to be at a
more healthy weight. In 2017, she told Women’s Health that she
weighed in at 171 pounds and said, “My life has changed so much since the weight
loss! I can do things I never imagined possible… I’ve been able to try indoor skydiving. […] [And] I can walk miles without getting
tired.” Nikki Webster At 649 pounds, Nikki Webster’s weight was
affecting her career in costume design. Luckily, she had strong support from her family,
and she was able to undergo gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Now. “That’s 455 lb weight loss.” “That number is breathtaking to me.” In 2017, she told People magazine, “It’s hard to imagine now how I used to live. It’s just become so vastly different. […] It has been the hardest two years of
my life, but it’s been the most victorious and exciting.” In 2018, Nikki revealed on Facebook that she’d
gotten married, writing, “I kind of got married. He’s the absolute best, and I honestly couldn’t
be more happy…It’s been a busy few months.” Paula Jones When Paula Jones decided to lose weight, she
had a tragic yet powerful motivation — her husband had passed away from weight-related
complications, weighing over 600 pounds. A year later, Jones herself weighed 542 pounds
and worried that she too would suffer a life-threatening complication from obesity, leaving her four
children on their own. Jones moved her family from Georgia to Texas
in order to have surgery with Dr. Now. According to Woman’s World, she experienced
amazing results, ultimately losing 400 pounds! The mag reported that her relationship with
her kids has also improved, with Jones saying, “I can be more active with them. I’ve learned how to be emotionally healthy
as well as physically healthy.” Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to

  2. Omg the 2nd one… can a human really grow their legs like that?? How do u even grow this big??! I panic when I gain 2kg.. n these ppl just eat n eat and one day "oops Im over to 200kg"

  3. I was over 110kg but in October last year, I had Bariatric surgery and I am now 66kg and back to working with children again – missed that for a few years due to my health issues, which some of it has improved but not all.

  4. How can you lose all that weight in two years and NOT be dragging your own skin around? I thought it took a long time for your skin to adjust?

  5. Baah whats there to be proud of, none of these lost their weight naturally. They just had a visit to the bacon slicer

  6. 👋🤓👍Hi, fellow YouTubers,
    It is I again, Master Claudio Salib, the resident friendly juvenile troll boy to grace the small and large screens to amuse and bemuse the lovely denizens on the YouTube forum to bestow my entertaining signature contributions once more. I have been quite absorbed lately in posting my inimitable entertaining and often misconstrued intellectual efforts. People have at times been unfairly critical of my contributions, where they have erroneously identified me as a pompous little privileged know-it-all. I am nothing of the sort and constantly learning as I engage through the corridors of YouTube's forum to disseminate my posts. I deeply renounce such malicious accusations, whereby with my kind and lovely inseparable school companion Peter, comforts and consoles me to overcome latent residual affects from any emotional ordeal arising from such falsehood. Please do keep in mind that I am only a Junior High school boy and quite sensitive to false allegations vented towards me as well as Peter without undue cause. The reason why I like Peter so much apart from his nice looks is that he is so gentle and kind and always assists me at school with my maths homework. Peter is great at mathematics whereas my forte lies in creative writing, thus we are an academically matched pair. We occasionally go to the cinema on weekends where I buy Peter a large popcorn and coke. On a more serious note, I present my latest comment for all my fans.
    This rather short but thought-provoking five minute and seventeen second disclosure clip is a follow-up to the, 'My 600 Pound Life' series of documentary programs hosted by TLC. The clip focuses on the most successful patients of Dr. Nowzaradan who have conquered their battle of the bulge with extraordinary vigour and outstanding results. All the patients depicted are truly wondrous to behold with their newly sculpted healthy physique to take them onward to avenues for which would have been previously inaccessible. I particularly find Miss Amber Rachdi, so beautiful and quite enchanting following her weight loss ordeal. In fact, she has always been ravishing but had hidden from view believing she was a monstrosity of sorts. Nothing could have been further from the truth.
    However, after seeing Miss Amber Rachdi, I would much rather sit next to her as then I would be able to hug and snuggle up to her like a kitten. I hope Peter does not come across this comment on YouTube or I will have some explaining to do.🙄

  7. I believe the young lass by the name of Miss Amber Rachdi has to be one of the most remarkable of metamorphosis to date. She was and still is a beautiful specimen of womanhood. She is absolutely gorgeous in my eyes and wish her and her partner good fortune. I did not believe that she would ever be able to lose her excess weight but she did and in so doing will have extended her life immeasurably. What more may I state without waffling on as I do….. Good onya Amber! 🖐🤓👍

  8. OMG. I've never seen stuff like this! Maybe once, about a guy who had to be lifted outta his house via a crane. I'm feeling better about my 140 lbs right now. Also, doesn't the human head weigh approx 10 lbs? That would make me only 130! 😂😂 After age 50, everything just starts to widen…

  9. All these people lost considerable weight and I am so proud of all of them not just one transformation that was the most amazing but all of them. And, I give all of them my love. Way To Go People!

  10. It’s crazy, they should be proud…The body is odd, they all go through a phase where there head doesn’t match & then catches up…I wonder why?

  11. this is a great example of "enablers"-none of these people could possibly get out to buy and eat all this food if they weren't being helped to obtain it

  12. Congrats to all of you and God bless Dr. Now!!! He really does care. Y’all keep up the great work!!❤️❤️❤️❤️

  13. This is one of the most inspirational videos I’ve ever seen
    about weight loss. At my heaviest, I at one time weighed 250 pounds.  I’ve yo-yo dieted all my life, struggling with compulsive eating.  As with any
    addiction, it is extremely difficult to change to a better lifestyle but thanks
    to this wonderful doctor and others like him, people who are seemingly
    hopelessly overweight can now get help. 
    Even with surgery, it is still a challenge to eat healthy and stay away
    from the foods you love.  Especially in a
    society that throws messages at you constantly to both eat whatever you want
    but you’re not worthwhile unless you’re thin.  All these attractive women are amazing! And I
    salute them. I’m still trying to keep my weight down. It’s something that never
    really goes away. But once an individual can master their diet, it’s fantastic
    how a whole new world of wonderful possibilities can open up.  Not everyone can do it although everyone deserves respect at any size.  But human
    nature being what it is, it’s much easier to live in society if you weigh less.
    Coincidentally I weighed myself before going online. I am now around 130 pounds. 
    But believe me it’s a fight every day to keep the pounds off.  Best wishes to all who try and congratulations to all that succeed!

  14. So many people have had gastric bypass and had such great results I've watched the show for years some were not so fortunate guess they really didn't want it that bad doctor now it's amazing

  15. I'm the opposite, I'm skinny af and can't gain weight no matter how I eat, if I do gain, it's only 1-2 lb but I will lose that weight the next month

  16. Bruh the thumbnail looks like a mixture of Edna from Incredibles and O'hare Air from The lorax😂😂😂😂 the Christina Phillips girl, but I'm rly proud of her

  17. I LOVE to see these success stories!! This is one of my favorite shows, it’s a complete addiction!! Destinee is my absolute favorite, I wanna meet her!! 🥰🥰 idk why this show makes me hungry tho, I get off in the mornings, watch it on my DVR, with my junk food, makes me happy!

  18. I used to weigh 198Ibs and I was 5 ft at the time. Its been two years and I weigh 146 I my goal is to get to 115-120 ibs. I'm almost there! I'm 5'1.5 now.
