Robin McKinley is the latest of Dr. Nowzaradan’s patients featured on My 600-lb Life. Robin made the trip from Kansas all the way down to Houston, Texas for help.

Initially, Robin was supposed to make the trip with her brother but he had a heart attack prior to hitting the road and due to his health, he had to stay home.

Instead, Robin brought her nephew Garrett with her to get the help of Dr. Now and both of them seemed willing and eager to get their lives and their weight under control.

When she first visited Dr. Now, Robin McKinley tipped the scales at 648 pounds but with his help, she completely changed her eating habits and her lifestyle in an effort to get on track.

It seems that’s exactly what happened for Robin too, as she’s been sharing a bit on social media since filming the TLC series.

While we can’t see any full body photos of Robin on her Facebook page, she is active and has made it clear to her friends that she’s doing great. She also lists her home as being in Houston, Texas now, meaning that she is still near Dr. Now and able to get help.

Since her visit to Dr. Now, Robin has committed to a 1200-calorie per day diet and has cut way back on sugary food. She also quit smoking, something that needed to happen in order to have weight loss surgery.

Her brother Chris has also committed to a healthier lifestyle and still wants to come to Houston for help. He is currently raising money in an effort to move closer to Robin so they can support each other and receive help from Dr. Now.

As we learn more about Robin McKinley’s progress after appearing on My 600-lb Life, we will continue to update so be sure to check back in!

My 600-lb Life airs on Wednesdays at 8/7c on TLC.
