My 600-lb Life Season 8 Episode 1 Recap:
Episode 1 introduces us to the first patients of bariatric surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan — John and Lonnie Hambrick, two brothers who each weighs above 600 pounds. They arrive in Houston to seek the help of Dr. Now (Nowzaradan) to get their lives back on track. Although the siblings have been estranged for quite a long time now, they come together for one common goal.
When they first arrive, 35-year-old John weighs 686 pounds and Lonnie (aged 36 years) weighs 612 pounds. They start off their journey by agreeing on a diet plan, outlined by Dr. Now. During the visit, Lonnie says: “Neither of us has ever been able to get weight loss surgery and it’s gonna take something drastic like that to give me a John a fighting chance to lose all the weight we need.” The duo has already considered the fact that they might need gastric bypass surgery.
The siblings have suffered from food addiction since they were young. When John was just 8-years-old, he already weighed around 200 pounds, with Lonnie catching up at a worriedly fast pace. Especially after their mum remarried, they resorted to unchecked eating. Lonnie recounts his past saying: “Our stepdad gave me all kinds of hell because I was always different.” And when he came out to his mother as gay, she simply did not pay any attention.
Of course, sticking to a strict diet comes with its own challenges. They also need to become extra active despite their heavy weight. Lonnie even advises fans who are looking to change their lifestyle, stating: “If you fall don’t just stop, get back up and keep going. The key to think about is it’s a journey, so if you have a day tomorrow, you will do better. Never give up.”
