A Tennessee woman who took part in the reality show “My 600 lb Life” revealed her weight loss of about 596 pounds over the space of three years, and her story is inspiring.

For years, before Milla Clark of Tennessee decided to move to Houston, Texas, with her family, she was extremely obese, overweight, and bedridden for three years.

Milla could do nothing for herself and relied on her five children to bathe and help her carry out the daily necessities until she decided to do something about it.

The mother-of-five turned reality star, contacted bariatric surgeon, Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, and got on the show “My 600 lb Life,” to chronicle her weight loss journey.

In a 2017 video on YouTube showing her first meeting with the doctor, Milla revealed that she could not fit into a car before except ambulances, and only for trips to the hospital.

After the meeting, the Tennessee native realized she needed to lose 100 pounds to qualify for surgery to remove her lymphedema, which she did. After which she had to shed another 200 pounds.

Dr. Younan placed Milla on a strict diet and had her children meet with a dietitian to help plan her meals and curb her food addiction.
