My 600 Lb Life: John and Lonnie Feeling weird About Eating So Little
During their weight loss journey, the brothers have realized how little they can eat, and to them, it feels weird. In the video, when their mom asked what they were eating, Lonnie said chicken and vegetables. To the viewers’ surprise, she said that if something is healthy it’s not good. Anyway, she was quickly relieved when Lonnie said that he has got some rolls for her. To that, their mom made a snarky comment saying that she is happy that she won’t starve to death.
Their mom also added that she misses the big meals they used to have. But her son tells her that their lives are different today. But the brothers also revealed that for the last month, they have been feeling a sense of loss that they never expected as they are not eating as much as they used to.
My 600 Lb Life: They Knew It Wasn’t Going To Be Easy
The brothers knew that the surgery wasn’t going to be the end of the struggle and that the entire process wouldn’t be easy. Plus, the fact that their mom is making them feel guilty about the diet is making things even more difficult for the brothers. They are taking it one day at a time. But in the dining scene, their mom again bugs them for not eating according to her standards.
Lonnie politely explains that if they keep tempting stuff in their refrigerator, everything they have worked so hard for will go in vain. John then said that things have been different than what they expected after the surgery. Earlier, everything that happened in the family involved eating a lot. He thinks that it’s hard for her to give all that up with her sons’ new diet. However, he also stated that he and Lonnie are committed to undergo this journey together no matter what.
My 600 Lb Life: The Brothers’ Follow Up With Dr. Now 8 Months Later
