‘My 600-lb Life’ is TLC’s fantastic offering that documents the weight loss journeys undertaken by morbidly obese people. Under the supervision of Dr. Now, the individuals try to lose a few pounds before they are greenlit for surgery. Often, the procedure and Dr. Now’s program is enough to set them on a path that focuses them on achieving the dream weight. For Garrett Rogers, that was definitely the case, as the young boy brought a drastic change in his lifestyle. You might be curious about where Rogers is at present. We have the latest news and updates.

Garrett Rogers’ My 600-lb Life Journey:

Initially, Garrett was not supposed to visit Dr. Now. He’s the nephew of Robin McKinley, a cast member, who suffered from an eating disorder and also smoked. After Robin’s brother Chris suffered a heart attack, it was up to Garrett to accompany her to Dr. Now’s office. The famed doctor was already focused on Robin’s dual issue of being morbidly obese and a regular smoker.

However, Garrett’s weight immediately commanded his attention. At the age of 20, the boy tipped the scales at 607 pounds. Dr. Now was alarmed that Garrett was headed towards becoming the world’s heaviest person and fast. Inspired by Dr. Now, Garrett doubled down on his efforts to lose weight. Eventually, he went down to 337 lbs, shedding almost 270 pounds.

On August 9, 2018, Garrett had created a GoFundMe page to get back to Kansas. Naturally, he had relocated to Houston to be treated by the doctor. However, Garrett needed to get back home as his father had fallen ill. Although his page only raised $288, Robin informed fans that as of November 2019, Garrett is back in Meade, Kansas. She also told viewers that Garrett was not interested in doing an official follow up episode with the network.
