TLC’s ‘My 600 Lb. Life’ Season 12 To Offer Seven New Emotional and Inspiring Weight-Loss Journeys

The wait is over for fans of TLC’s My 600 Lb Life — the hit series returns with a new season airing on March 6 at 8 pm ET/PT, chronicling the difficult journey of seven morbidly obese patients as they embark on a path toward weight loss and health.

With the help of Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, known to viewers as “Dr. Now,” his cut and dry approach to their overall health and well-being will aim to re-position them on a journey toward wellness — which is often the difference between life and death for many of his patients.

The patients this season all find themselves in unique situations: one woman hopes to turn her health around prior to getting married, a man who was previously addicted to drugs has now turned to food and a once-athletic man has skyrocketed to over 600 pounds.

What we know about My 600 Lb Life and the new season

The series debuts with the story of Krystal S. on March 6. Having met the man of her dreams, her physical condition is holding her back from marrying him, as she wants to live a life in which her significant other is not her caretaker.

The trailer for the new season gives a glimpse into numerous stories, with tidbits from suffering patients detailing the extremity of their condition.

“The only thing that makes me feel better is when I eat until it physically hurts,” says one patient in the teaser.

My 600 Lb Life new season details

Many of the patients apart of this upcoming season are aided by family members who are hoping to save their loved ones before it’s too late. One patient named William, who maintained an active lifestyle until an injury hindered his athleticism, is now over 600 pounds.

In a scene in the trailer, his mother describes his condition: “William is like a crashing plane — you can’t stop it. It is heartbreaking to look at it.”

For many of the patients struggling on this show, the journey toward health is not a straight line, many facing setbacks like weight gain and continuous food addiction.

“I need someone to help me. I’m ready to change my life,” says another patient.

What happened to some of the previous patients?

Fans of My 600 Lb Life that are anxiously anticipating the new season have another premiere to look forward to: My 600 Lb Life: Where Are They Now? — new episodes begin on April 24 at 8 pm ET/PT. This six episode installment of the series will take a look back at some of Dr. Now’s previous patients and see how they’ve fared after their time on the show.
