With the new season of My 600-Lb Life coming to TLC this month, fans are very excited to see the new cast on their weight loss journeys with Dr. Now. In the meantime, fans have been catching up with previous cast members. One fan favorite from the show is Christina Phillips. Christina knew that she needed Dr. Now’s help and was quick to start her journey with him.
Christina’s Weight Loss Journey With Dr. Now
Christina appeared on My 600-Lb Life back in 2014. At only 22 years old, she weighed over 600 pounds. Her weight was causing her serious health issues and she couldn’t even walk across a room without losing her breath! She told Dr. Now, “I’m trapped inside this body that I don’t want to be in.” There were many things in her daily life that she couldn’t do, from getting the mail to driving a car, and all of this at only 22 years old! She knew that she needed to get help or her health would get worse.
Christina did have some help at home. Her husband, Zach Phillips knew that she had to depend on him for pretty much everything. He really liked the fact that she was so dependent on him, but this made some viewers a little uneasy. There were some who thought that he was trying to control her with food, while others just thought he liked being needed. No matter what, Christina’s life was at risk and she was determined to make the changes needed to be a successful weight loss patient.
Dr. Now was ready to help Christina and knew that she would be a complicated case. Dr. Now’s instructions are never easy on patients, but he does get a lot of credit for using a tough love method on them. The TLC doctor’s methods have helped so many of his patients find the motivation that they need to lose weight and get their lives back on track. It was Christina’s turn to find that motivation and take her health into her hands.
The New Photos Say It All
Christina was dedicated to losing weight and she did well. She went through with gastric bypass surgery and had skin removal surgery shortly after. In 2015, she was down to 183 pounds, but she admitted that she suffered from anorexia. She was terrified that she would gain all of the weight back. Since then, she has been living her best life and enjoying every moment that she can. She told fans, “The simple things in life are enjoyable to me. I know that seems silly but it’s the honest answer.”
Fans were shocked to see just how amazing Christina looks now! In fact, many of them didn’t recognize her because of just how much weight she has lost. Christina has worked hard to get where she is now and fans applaud her for that.
