Bunch was first seen on ‘My 600-lb Life’ a year back. Her backstory was an emotional one.  She weighed over 600 lbs. and suffered from a severe addiction towards food.

Her eating habits led to an extreme case of lymphedema of her legs and caused open blisters and sores. Bunch’s journey on the show also revealed that she was sexually abused in her childhood.


During her childhood phase, her mother insisted Bunch to be a strict diet which turned out to be damaging as Bunch developed her food addiction later in her life.

As reported by In Touch Weekly, Bunch believed that the chaos in her family made her feel very insecure. She did not experience her home to be a safe harbor. She regularly put herself into isolation that led to a very lonely life.


Bunch lost over 250 pounds after undergoing a gastric sleeve surgery. Her recent social media activity revealed that she is leading a healthy and positive life.

Despite not being a part of the show, Bunch focused on keeping her health in check and documented her journey via her Facebook account.

She has been active on social media and encourages her fans and followers to embark on the transformational weight loss journey.
