Sean Milliken, who appeared in the TLC show My 600-lb Life, has died at the age of 29. A later episode of the show in 2017 looked back at Sean's progress as he lost a staggering 400lbs or 28 stone, before his mum died in 2018. Lisa Fleming, who was featured on My 600-lb Life died Thursday, just months after appearing on the TLC reality series. She weighed closed to 705 lbs at the time, then underwent weight loss surgery, in which she lost 200 lbs, but her body "gave out" this week, her daughter told TMZ. Fleming's passing follows by just weeks the death of James "L.B." Bonner who also appeared on Season 6 of My 600-lb Life.
TLC released a statement at the time of Bonner's death. "TLC was deeply saddened to hear of LB's passing and is honored to have shared his honest and courageous story on My 600-lb Life," the statement said. My 600-lb Life has aired on TLC since 2012. Each episode follows a year in the life of one or more super morbidly obese individuals, who each begin the episode weighing around 600 pounds, and documents their attempts to reduce their weight to a healthy level. A MORBIDLY obese mum who was bedbound for three years has lost a massive 42st 5lbs - and is learning to walk again.
The weight loss expert wanted to operate on her to remove her lymphedema but she needed to lose weight first to reduce the dangers of having a surgical procedure. 5 She's even been kayaking with her kids since shedding the weight Credit: TLC So the mum hunkered down and stuck to her weight loss plan - losing 7st on her own. That made her eligible for surgery and Dr Nowzaradan was able to remove the swelling from her leg. And once she was able to stand on her own, Milla then underwent weightloss surgery. Sadly, her husband Elroy passed away two months into filming the show - but apart from that tragedy, Milla remained focused and stuck to her weight loss plan.
Her children met with a dietitian so they could learn about their mum's new diet and to make sure that they wouldn't enable her addiction to eating before she was sent home.

By the end of the three years, she was down to her goal weight of 11st and for the first time in years, she's been able to do activities with her kids - including canoeing. A massively obese woman shed 33 stone in a miraculous weight loss journey that enabled her to walk again. At her heaviest, she weighed 51.5st although she managed to ditch 25st by getting swollen tissue removed from her leg. Finally able to get up and about for the first time in years, Liz managed to drop another three stone in four months. Doctors then said she was ready for a second operation to remove further swollen tissue from her leg, however the surgery was so painful she shied away from staying active. However, when Dr Nowzaradan told her that she risked being bedbound again, Liz resumed her weight loss programme. She then shed three stone and seven pounds in two months, meaning she lost a total of 33st in two years, The Sun reports. In the show, she said that she became dependant on food after being molested when she was six-years-old. The weight gain meant she developed lymphedemas in both legs, which prevented her from walking around. A man weighing more than 50 stone has predicted he will eat himself to death as he continues to spend his days doing 'not a lot of activity'.
