"My 600-Lb Life" Season 4 is a reality docu-series on TLC that follows the lives of eight people — each weighing over 600 pounds — through their year long journey as they collectively try to lose thousands of pounds.

Each episode tells the powerful story of one morbidly obese individual — many who are home bound, relying on care just to live day to day — as they make the courageous decision to undergo a dangerous gastric bypass surgery in an effort to save their lives and change their world forever. Their motivations for making the drastic change vary — some do it for their loved ones, others to be productive members of society, but all of them have one thing in common — they want to be free from a life trapped in a body.

The series documents the life-saving, but traumatic experience of surgery, the ups and downs of struggling with addiction and dependence, the transformation from being completely dependent to gaining a sense of self worth and the inevitable impact — positive and negative - that change has on close personal relationships. High-risk surgery, addiction, dependency, fear, pain, helplessness, victory, pride — this story is as much about heart as it is about weight loss.

Season 3

Season three begins by looking back on participants from the second season and where they are now in their weight loss journeys. From learning to let their guards down and flying for the first time to working towards skin surgery and finding love, Olivia, James, Zsalynn, Christina, Chuck, Paula, Penny and Tara continue to overcome personal struggles in the hopes of living the lives they've always wanted. Then, viewers will meet eight new individuals ready to embark on the most physically challenging and emotionally taxing year of their lives.
