MY 600-LB LIFE

The emotional fan favorite series MY 600-LB LIFE returns to TLC for its seventh season on Wednesday, January 2 at 8/7c, following people who are struggling to escape the prison that their own bodies have become. Viewers will see first-hand their hardships with addiction, dependence and the inevitable impact their condition has on their closest relationships. Each episode will give viewers an inside look at the most extreme emotional and physical journeys to life-saving surgery with Dr. Nowzaradan, and their continued incredible progress thereafter, living the lives they had hoped for.

This season will follow 20 new incredible journeys including a transgender woman who longs to live a glamorous life but struggles to get through every day basics, a couple who met online and are dealing with morbid obesity together and a woman whose family's lack of proper hygiene - and the fact that they live with 11 dogs - has exacerbated her own health.

FAMILY BY THE TON

The Anderson family is back and continuing their incredible weight loss journey with the guidance of Dr. Procter, but first viewers will meet a new family facing the life and death consequences of morbid obesity and turning to the good doctor for help. Out of the four members of the King family, Casey is the largest, weighing in at over 700-lbs. Casey spends most of his time eating mountains of food in his bedroom while playing video games for hours on end, enabled by his dad who will do anything to keep him happy. Casey's cousin Ed is a father of two, but his weight of 450-lbs is dangerously life-threatening and must be managed for the sake of his daughters. Meanwhile, cousin Amy might weigh the least in the family at almost 400 pounds, but she sees a future of struggle and limitations that she doesn't want to accept. And while everyone faces a weight that is life or death, it is far more precarious for Amanda. With a diagnosis of endometrial cancer, Amanda is untreatable as long as she continues to weigh 650-lbs and must lose half her body weight if she ever hopes to have her cancer surgically removed. All four cousins make a pact that they will go on a weight loss journey together and fight the family legacy of obesity threatening their lives.

In the second half of the season, viewers will once again follow the Anderson family and see where Drew, Naomi and Chitoka are after their weight-loss surgeries. Unfortunately, they begin to discover that surgery is not a solution on its own, and that a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise are crucial. As time passes, the challenge of continuing to lose weight and stay on track grows. Although she sees their progress begin to waiver, their 650-lb cousin Shavonne is now desperate for a change and decides to follow in the family's footsteps, seeking approval for weight-loss surgery. In time, Shavonne learns that she needs to find motivation within herself and in doing so, will hopefully be able to motivate her cousins to follow through in their weight-loss journey together as a family.
