“Anyone remember Margaret’s starting weight?” one fan asked on Reddit. “Both [she] and her mom are such reliable narrators, it could mean she lost the same 50 pounds over and over.”

They also attached a screenshot from Facebook. Reportedly the message is from Millie, Margaret’s mother.

“I’m so sorry we haven’t updated y’all on Margaret Johnson’s progress,” the post reads. “We are hopefully on that road to recovery this time. It has been an uphill battle non-stop since her surgery. In and out of the hospital and rehab many times since her surgery day! I will tell you that in nine months since she started her diet she has lost a total of over 340 lbs! Prayers are always appreciated. She still has a long road to go!”

“Started at 750, got down to 595 during her episode according to the list on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_600-lb_Life#Subject_statistics,” one Reddit user answered the OP. “I’m pretty sure other subjects have said that they’re not allowed to share numbers. I remember Amber alluding to it once, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen one or two others flat-out say they’re not allowed to give numbers. I could be misremembering though.”

It’s definitely true that TLC can be strict with the contracts they require participants to sign. Other TLC stars like Tammy Slaton from 1000-Lb. Sisters said she isn’t allowed to give fans updates on her weight when she’s offscreen.

So for now, My 600-Lb. Life fans will just have to believe the Wikipedia article and Margaret’s mother.
