My 600 lb life

I'm watching this show on TLC, I think it may be a rerun- but holy crap! Did that a-hole husband REALLY just stop by a fast food drive thru ON THE WAY HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL?  Oh Lord- I am so thankful for the supportive people in my life...

I saw it too. Made me heart sick. She needs to get away from him in order to get healthy. How can she be successful with someone like that in her life. What a loser!

I was in shock when I saw that the other say. Then had her hold his burger! I think she left him a year or so ago. Insane. The girl broke me heart when she asked why het mom married him. Then said it would have been worth nor being born if that meant het mom not marrying that scum bucket. Poor kid.

Yeah, he is a first class jackass.

I liked that the doctor very quickly corrected her when her immediate response when he asked her what her understanding of the surgery was that it would involve cutting the intestine and that when she ate sugar she would quickly get very sick. I thought it was great that he told her that all he surgery would do is limit her to eating small portions, that making good food choices and the number of times a day she eats were the key to success and that the surgery wouldn't keep her from eating sugar.

All I can say is THANK GOD I got help before I was there- I would like to say that could never be me... But it sounds so familiar...

It is a series.  This week, they had new episodes at both 8pm and 9pm (Eastern).

I started similar thread on R&R saying after watching him I wanted go to San Antonio and kick his ass!  She should have whacked him with one of her crutches.  Think we on OH could have a fund raiser to raise the money to cover her legal fees for a divorce from the Bozo?

Never, and I mean NEVER, trust a fart!!

Oh Zaslynn's story was so sad. Her husband is such a jerk. I hope she gets enough strength to  leave him considering their daughter is so unhappy as well.  I did find her facebook page and it says she has gotten a job and continued on her journey.  I am so thankfully I have such caring and supportive friends and family.


Did you watch the second one Oliva's story. Now that was fantastic how supportive and encouraging her family was.  Thats the way it should be.

Olivia's story was "textbook" perfect from support aspect.

He sounds like a real wiener to me!  The Surgeon gave my wife a sheet that had the things I need to do to be successful over the long hall.  She's planning to have it blown up and framed for me.  I told her to go ahead.

I watched that last night too.  I wanted to crawl through the tv and shove that burger up his a$$.  I felt bad for the little girl too. 

I noticed how her doctor got mad that she was drinking soda, and told her it would stretch her pouch, I laughed because we are told that is a myth.

Definitely going to look for it and DVR.
