My 600-Lb. Life fans almost certainly remember Melissa Morris. She was the first patient on the show and introduced fans to the world of My 600-Lb. Life. Although it’s been quite some time since Melissa Morris’ journey began, fans have always been very invested in her success.
So where is the TLC pioneer in 2022? Is she doing well? Keep reading and see what TV Shows Ace managed to find out about Melissa Morris this year.
Melissa Morris proudly shows off her progress in 2022
When fans first met Melissa Morris, she desperately wanted to become a mother. However, her size made it difficult for her to conceive. She realized she may have to rethink her lifestyle if she wanted to make that dream come true. After joining Dr. Now’s program, she managed to lose enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery. After surgery, she eventually got down to 157 lbs and did go on to have children.
The TLC personality did go on to put on some weight after giving birth to her three children — as is the case with many other women. It’s just a normal part of experiencing pregnancy and motherhood.
Although Melissa isn’t as active online as some other My 600-Lb. Life alums, she does maintain an active Instagram presence. Most of the content centers around her family and children. The most recent picture Melissa shared of herself went up on September 3, 2022.
“For all who are asking this photo is the most recent full body post of me,” Melissa captioned the post. “Taken at our church @cityrisemissouricity with two very dear friends this summer. My weight has stayed the same for the last 6 years – after the birth of my 3 baby!”
Last year, the TLC personality admitted that she has continued to struggle with her weight from time to time over the years. Just like everyone else, Melissa has a lot going on in her life and sometimes it impacts her weight. But even so, her journey isn’t any less valid. She’s an excellent reminder to fans that sometimes weight fluctuates and changes. And that’s okay.
The TLC personality wants fans to realize that she is more than just her size
In an old Instagram post, one follower said they felt bad for Melissa since she regained her weight. However, the TLC personality quickly put that person in their place.
“You don’t have to be sorry about it because I am not,” she replied in the comment thread. “I will never let myself go again it isn’t only about me anymore. I hate when people believe that I am my weight or that I am not a person that their words (good intentions or not) hurts.”
By all accounts, it seems like Melissa Morris is in great health these days. She has three wonderful children and she is grateful she gets to share her life with them.
