On Season 7 of My 600-lb Life, the cameras follow a young obese man named Aaron. Since the death of his mother, Aaron has lived at home to take care of his aging father. But due to his weight and health, Aaron now relies on his father to run his errands. “If I got out and had to walk around to get everything, there would be no way, I wouldn’t be able to last,” Aaron admits. He feels bad about having to rely on his 76-year-old father, a Vietnam Veteran who uses a motorized chair and walking cane.
On the way to the grocery store, Aaron says, “I worry that it’s going to be too much for my father at some point, but it still doesn’t stop me from having to do this.” Aaron stays in the car while his father takes a motorized cart and gets everything on Aaron’s list. The top three things on the list are pizza, chips and hot pockets. Cookies, crackers and ice cream are also on the list.
Aaron’s father says: “I love my boy, but I don’t like his eating habits.” While getting everything on Aaron’s list, his father admits: “I don’t say a thing to him. I just keep my mouth shut because I don’t want him to get mad at me.” Brace yourself for one sad episode. New episodes of My 600-lb Life air Wednesdays at 8 pm on TLC.
