My 600-lb Life Season 8 Episode 15 Recap:
Texas-based Ashley T is a 24-year-old young woman who hails from Temple. She has been struggling with her weight since she was a 3-year-old kid and when we first meet her in the show, she tips the scales at over 600 lbs. It is also revealed in the episode that she suffers from borderline personality disorder and is addicted to catfishing people on social media.
When referred to therapist Lola Clay, the doctor recommends Ashley to start attending regular therapy sessions. Ashley additionally explains that her emotional instability is due to her traumatic past — she was rejected by her father and even raped by a neighbor. Additionally, she lost her grandmother at 20 and her mother is still housed in a healthcare facility.
At the final weigh-in, Ashley manages to lose several pounds and weighs 469 lbs. But she is not approved for the sleeve surgery. But she is determined to continue on her journey. At the end of the episode, she says: “I’m proud of all that I’ve already been able to accomplish so far. I’m not gonna give up and I’m not gonna fail at this, because there’s a future out there that was supposed to be mine to begin with and I gave it up to food and to other things that have kept me from it. So I’m fighting to get back what’s mine.”
