Christina has a second chance at life. Her frame used to bear 700 pounds, and she was married to a horrid enabler who fed her all the wrong food.
She got life-changing weight-loss surgery in Houston, TX. Now she has shed over 500 pounds and her lousy first husband.
Christina’s story featured on TLC’s My 600-Lb Life: Where Are They Now?
Her weight-loss has freed her, but not entirely. She has found love with Shane who is her best friend and partner, but her self-consciousness is hampering her ability to live fully.
She hates the excess skin on her arms and legs and needs skin surgery to create some semblance of normalcy and proportion.
Christina is also fighting depression and needs a few more rounds of surgery before she can fully live life again.
Also, the story of Paula showed how weight-loss and food issues run in families. After losing 300-lbs, Paula teaches her daughter to not follow in her footsteps as she too prepares for skin removal surgery, an op which gives people a chance to fit in and not be self-aware.
