‘My 600-lb Life’ on TLC gives us an insight into the weight loss journeys undertaken by several morbidly obese people. While Dr. Now’s careful supervision and guidance help them to shed some pounds before being greenlit for surgery, the individual weight loss processes still take a lot of hard work and determination. Brittani Fulfer has had one of the toughest journeys on the show but has faced the uphill battle like a champion. So, where is Brittani now?
Brittani Fulfer’s My 600-lb Life Journey:
Brittani joined the series when she tipped the scales at 605 pounds. She told viewers that she’d suffered from sexual abuse as a child, which led to her obesity. The participant described that living in her body caused too much pain and sadness. Often when she looked into the mirror, she was disgusted by what she saw. However, Dr. Now helped the woman change her life. He put her on a 1200-calories a day diet. Brittani ate three times a day, following a chart that was high in protein and very low on carbs. She made a note of whatever she ate three times a day.
After a while, results began to show as Brittani lost 240 pounds. A follow-up episode showed that she had shed an additional 93 pounds which brought her weight down to 272 lbs.

After a massive weight loss, Brittani and her husband even considered the possibility of trying to have a baby, something they wouldn’t even have thought of at the start of the participant’s journey. While the couple has not had a child of their own, they have become an uncle and aunt to little Deshon, a bundle of joy. The baby helps Brittani to fight her depression. The ‘My 600-lb Life’ alum has always been open about her mental health problems and has accordingly made her social media account a safe environment for her fans and friends. Here’s a picture of Brittani stating that her adoration for her nephew ensures she doesn’t give up on life.
