Posts about My 600-lb Life
Has anyone experienced moments in their life when they felt like a participant from the show? Or had a moment that reminded you of the show? Last weekend, my cousin got married and a golf cart transported people to the wedding site at the venue. My family and I were in charge of setting up and taking down, and the golf cart transported us back to our car. I fell off (stepped off too soon) and it reminded me of Steven Assanti falling off the golf cart. It probably one of the most memorable moments of the entire wedding weekend
At this point I’ve watched so many episodes of my 600 lb life that I can guess a patients weight within 5 lbs at the first weigh in. Are you guys able to accurately guess the weights as well? Was there anyone’s first weight that completely threw you for a loop? Maybe it was way smaller or larger than you would have thought?
I have no doubt that y'all have had to deal with patients who were the equivalent of Steven Assanti. But have you ever seen a patient get kicked out of the hospital like he did? Or making very obvious crocodile tears while asking for a specific painkiller? Curious as a non-medical lurker who's only been admitted once for emergency.
Hey there people,
I was having some thoughts, and I was wondering what other viewers of the show felt about some things. When I watch My 600 lb. Life, I feel a sense of guilt in the way I suspect TLC exploits the subjects and manipulates circumstances in the episodes. On the other hand, I feel fascinated and inspired by the participants that are really able to turn things around and, in essence, change the course of their lives. It makes me realize how much being an adult is about taking responsibility for your health and happiness. What are your thoughts? I hope everyone is well.
