The "My 600-lb Life" audience was introduced to Lisa Flemming earlier this year when she joined season six of the reality television show.


Lisa weighed more than 700 pounds and made remarkable progress throughout the show. Sadly, her daughter Danielle confirmed that Flemming passed away last week.

She was fifty years old. Read more about your favorite reality television stars on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.

A distraught Danielle wrote on Facebook that she was at a loss for words and that she didn't make it in time to say goodbye.

She added: "God knows I wanted you to hold on until I got here but He knew what was best for me. I didn’t need to see you like that!"

Danielle explained that she held her mother's hand for four hours and came to the realization that there was nothing she could do to bring her mother back.


She asked Lisa's fans to pray for her and asked loved ones to check up on her because she is "not okay."

Danielle also confirmed to TMZ that her mother had lost more than 200 pounds since appearing on the show and that her death was not due to the excess weight.

Lisa had been ill for some time before joining "My 600-lb Life," and Danielle explained that "she was sick and her body was tired and her body just gave out."

Fans will recall that Lisa's struggle took its toll on her and that she had been battling with her weight since her childhood years.


Lisa was bedridden during her time on the show, but Danielle is immensely proud of the progress her mother had made

Another season six participant, L.B. Bonner, also lost his life earlier this month. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot on August 2.
