My 600-lb Life featured Charity Pierce, a 38-year-old single mom and her 18-year-old daughter Charly in a 2014 episode. Charity was motivated to lose the weight (200 lbs.) needed to qualify for gastric bypass surgery. Her motivation? The idea of marrying her 21-year-old boyfriend Tony. The cameras followed Charly into bridal shops where she would send photos of dresses she thought her mother would like.
Charity has since lost a lot of weight and looks amazing, and things have turned out well for Charly too. According to her Facebook account, the 21-year-old is now a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) in Houston, Texas. My 600-lb Life airs Wednesdays at 8pm on TLC.
