The show premiered with the inspirational lives of Vanessa Cross and Meghan Crumpler, who are determined to take care of their health with the help of bariatric surgery. The best friend duo became the favorites of many viewers of the show, who still roots for their well-being. Naturally, you must be wondering about their current life. Here’s what we found!
Vanessa Cross and Meghan Crumpler’s Too Large Journey
The premiere episode of ‘Too Large’ season 1, titled ‘We Big But We Pretty,’ discuss Vanessa and Meghan’s journey with their obesity in detail. Vanessa and Meghan started to receive help from Dr. Procter when they were at 440 lbs and 496 lbs, respectively. Even though Vanessa was skeptical at first, Meghan’s intervention encouraged her to be perseverant in trying to reclaim her health.
Owing to her economic conditions, Vanessa and her family depended on the food pantry for their daily food. Since the items weren’t diet-friendly, Vanessa started to rinse off canned vegetables to remove the sodium content from the food. Her advisors in the show also started to give her no-sodium seasonings to use for a healthy diet. She also began to exercise regularly but failed to meet the required weight loss. Still, Vanessa struggled hard to make a difference upon seeing the tremendous change in the appearance of her best friend Meghan and managed to lose a few pounds at the end of the episode.
On the other hand, Meghan produced wonderful results. Even though she was asked to lose 20 pounds by the doctor, her continuous efforts helped her lose around 40 pounds. With her boyfriend Jon on her side, Meghan resolutely worked hard to make the transformation happen and finally underwent surgery. The bariatric surgery helped her to lose 160 pounds, which reduced her weight to around 338 pounds. Along with her weight loss, Meghan got proposed by Jon at the end of the episode, to which she replied, “Yes!”
Where are Vanessa Cross and Meghan Crumpler Now?
Even though her initial efforts didn’t help her lose much weight, Vanessa showed commendable willpower to go on with her journey to reduce her weight and embrace a healthy life. Along with obesity, Vanessa was apparently struggling with other health issues, but she continued to work hard to reach her goal of weight loss and bariatric surgery. After the show, Vanessa is spending time with her family and friends in and around Atlanta, Georgia, especially with her son, Jacob.
After the phenomenal results, Meghan continues to inspire people dealing with morbid obesity and other health issues through her social media. She currently lives in Hoschton, Georgia, with her cat, Jaxson, and spends her time with family and friends. Meghan regularly creates content on TikTok and is planning to launch a new podcast project with one of her best friends, Tina. After her surgery, Meghan stopped using her oxygen machine regularly. As she is making incredible progress with her weight loss, we can hope that she is doing better with the other health issues she fights.
After Jon’s proposal to Meghan at the end of episode 1 of ‘Too Large,’ the couple have kept their relationship under the wraps, but their admirable bond is a big part of Meghan’s life. She continues to hang out with her best friend Vanessa, and we can hope that she will be an enormous motivation for Vanessa to achieve her dream of bariatric surgery. Along with her adorable TikTok videos, Meghan continues to share vignettes about her deceased father, who inspired her to accomplish a healthy life.
