Tonight on TLC’s My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?, Nikki Webster has done the work to get slimmer but has a huge apron of skin in her belly area that is making life difficult.

She still has to lose more weight before weight-loss expert Dr. Younan Nowzaradan gives the approval for surgery to trim her excess skin.

But the death of her friend Michael from gastric bypass surgery has spooked her about going ahead with any more operations.

He was inspired to go ahead with the procedure after Nikki’s success.

Arkansas native Nikki has lost more than 200-lb after earlier having gastric bypass surgery.

Beforehand she was so obese that she could barely wash her body and keep clean.

She had piled on the pounds after her parents allowed her to eat whatever she wanted. But simple tasks and everyday living became a nightmare for her.

She is now on a path to normalizing her weight, but she’s not quite there yet.

After having the life-saving procedure, she was left with the huge apron of skin which hangs from her mid-section.

Nikki’s new goal is to be approved for skin surgery and she attacks her gym workouts with her old true grit.
