Unfortunately, both Margaret Johnson and her mother Millie have pretty locked-down profiles. Other than updating their profile pictures, the only thing someone who isn’t friends with them can see is when they share a public post. Margaret, however, did post a selfie as her profile picture back in September of 2021 that looked pretty similar to what she was wearing and how she looked toward the end of the episode. So, one might speculate she had her surgery during the month of September.

If it has really been five months since Margaret Johnson had her surgery, how much weight has she likely lost since then? While her 2022 update on where she is now involves a lot of assumptions, Margaret has likely lost between 150 and 250 pounds since the show finished production. This is assuming it has been five months and assuming she’s stuck to her diet. This would put where she is now with her weight loss in 2022 somewhere between 440 and 340.

  1. I hope she stuck to her diet and is feeling much better now. I think her mom is a flawed woman but a great mom in her heart, and Margaret has lots of emotional issues but seems like a really good person. I think the biggest obstacle for both mom and daughter to overcome is that I think mom likes taking care of her daughter like a baby, and Margaret enjoys the attention she gets from being treated like a baby.

    I really wish them both the best in the future.

  2. I’ve never said this before about a mother and daughter but their relationship seems very odd. I recall the dog with his head under the blanket near her body and it din’t bother either of them. Very strange mother and daughter indeed.

  3. They were separated and Margaret was alienated from her mother. The joy they have to be back together is totally real and understandable. I’m happy for them in every way and they are blessed. Together they can accomplish anything. Of course our children are always our babies. We love them more than ourselves. We want them to be their best selves so they can have have a good life. It doesn’t always work out that way. They were lucky.

  4. I’ve never seen anything like that before. their relationship is totally odd. she definitely is not a baby apart from her demeanor that is.
    crazy childish outbursts every time she is not getting her own way. this is one 600lb’er I did not like at all.

  5. OK, let’s leave out the fact that everything they did was way over the top. When her mother saw her weight loss at Dr. Nows she started hollering and crying getting that fat Margaret all worked up all over again. She is emotionally stunted and when Dr. Paradise says she needs to get some space from her Mother she flips out not just an upset lunatic. Screaming, crying- she is real good at that -got so far out of hand the Mother was fanning the flames she is sick too. When she went back for the endoscopy she got her worked up and said “Just because I left your Daddy not you, OK, OK??” on and on. I felt bad for Dr. Now having to deal with these histrionic women what a mess!!! and those people who know them you are not helping them by praising this dysfunction, shame on you.
