The Season 5 premiere episode of My 600-lb Life tells the story of 29-year-old identical twins Brandi and Kandi. Combined, the two young women weigh nearly 1,200 lbs.
They don’t just live together, they also sleep in the same bed. When Kandi goes into obesity-related cardiac arrest and is told that she may have suffered from brain damage, the sisters get serious about losing weight. So much so that they’re eligible for gastric bypass surgery. But it won’t be easy; battling addiction never is. My 600-lb Life airs Wednesdays at 8pm on TLC.
