My 600-Lb Life – Kandi and Brandi Now 2022
When Kandi and Brandi Dreier first appeared on “My 600-Lb Life” in season five, they weighed more than 500 pounds each. After battling childhood trauma, they decided to embark on a new life together. They have been able to successfully lose hundreds of pounds each, and have also regained their health. Their story is one of the most successful in the show’s history.
Both girls grew up with a history of abuse, and as a result, the weight was a constant stressor in their lives. As they became adults, they struggled with food addiction. At times, they even resorted to sexual abuse. But in their quest to change their lives, they met a weight loss doctor who helped them get on the path to a healthier lifestyle.
Before meeting Dr. Now, the twins had lived in Vancouver, Washington. The mother, Bobbie, revealed that their father had been a drug dealer. It was a scary time, and they feared losing each other. However, they vowed to work hard to change their lives.
Kandi’s journey was a bit more complicated, as she had to wait for her surgery to be approved. She also had to improve her heart EKG readings. Doctors said that she could have brain damage if she did not get enough oxygen. Luckily, she was able to recover from the scare. With the help of her sister, she was able to get on the road to recovery.
In the months leading up to their surgeries, both sisters began to make changes to their lifestyles. They began taking more exercise and following a more strict diet. Eventually, they decided to move to Texas to participate in a program led by the surgeon.
During the course of their yearlong journey, the sisters each lost an amazing amount of weight. Kandi was able to drop 200 pounds in the first year of her surgery. Brandi went even further, losing more than 300 pounds. By the end of the program, she had dropped to 384 pounds.
After the program, the twins continued to follow Dr. Now’s advice, and they continued to lose weight. They both continue to live healthy lives today, and have started families of their own. Despite the trauma they have faced throughout their lives, they have made a tremendous recovery.
While the program was not the only factor that helped the girls get back on track, it was certainly a big part. Both girls were desperate to get their lives back on track. The stress of being so overweight and having to deal with such severe health risks was overwhelming. However, when they started working on their lives, the two girls showed incredible commitment. Even after the show ended, they still worked hard to make positive changes in their lives.
Although their stories have a tragic ending, it is clear that they have found a way to overcome their past, and both are now thriving in their new, healthier lifestyles. If you’re looking to find out more about their lives and their new families, be sure to keep an eye out for their season ten debut, which is scheduled to air in February 2022.
