My 600-lb Life tells the story of James “LB” Bonner. The young man from South Carolina says he spent his early life trying to prove himself to his adoptive family. After losing a leg, he battled obesity. But now LB is changing his life. He had gastric bypass surgery performed by Dr. Nowzaradan, and it was a success. According to LB’s Facebook page he’s eating well (salmon with asparagus!) and exercising (running on the beach). He reports that he’s even wearing the same size shorts he wore 6 years ago! In January 2018 he wrote, “I’m loving the way life is going right now, can’t express how happy and thankful I am for all the support everyone has shown me.”
LB also revealed that while he’s working on his resume, on January 26 he returned for his first night “working back at the ol’ booby bar.” He wrote that he kinda hopes somebody steps out of line so he needs to “go Hands-On with somebody” since he’s “got a lot of frustration I need to work out…” Don’t worry, LB later reported that the first night back went smoothly. My 600-lb Life airs Wednesdays at 8pm on TLC.
