The My 600-lb Life episode ‘Tanisha’s Story’ tells the story of 32-year-old Tanisha who weighs close to 600 pounds. She wants to avoid her mother’s tragic fate – her mother died at the age of 50 from obesity. With the support of her children, she works her way toward getting gastric bypass surgery from surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan.
One thing that sets Tanisha’s Story apart from the others is her house. She (and her children) have managed to keep the house immaculate. Most families featured on the show are so overwhelmed with taking care of the obese member of their family, it’s difficult to maintain housekeeping. My 600-lb Life airs Wednesdays at 8pm on TLC.
