My 600-Lb Life Season 8 had a trailer dropped this week by TLC. And, it brings people with enormous problems and enormous weight issues. It looks like this season’s gonna be a real tear-jerker. Even though the trailer’s short, the emotions obvious. In the trailer, TLC notes, “[it]returns with drastic weight loss journeys like you’ve never seen before.” The show premieres on January 1.
My 600-Lb Life Season 8 premieres on January 1, the same days 1000-Lb Sisters
TV Shows Ace reported that the New Year brings three weigh loss stories. My Big Fat Fabulous Life showcases Whitney May Thore and her engagement to Chase Severino. That arrives on January 7. Then, a new show features two sisters who already share their eating disorders on YouTube. The show comes an hour after the upcoming My 600-Lb Life. Titled 1000-Lb Sisters, the likable women try and lose weight for life-saving surgery.
So, the fascinating and repelling story of all these morbidly obese people comes in chunks. US Weekly noted, My 600-Lb Life looks “more tear-inducing than ever before.” Not only do the people struggling with weight come over as desperate and sad, but their families and friends do as well. That’s not unusual in the show, but TLC seems to somehow capture it all a bit better this time around. Naturally, Dr. Nowzaradan, better known as Dr. Now is on hand to deliver some stern reality and work miracles.
The trailer and fan reactions on Twitter
In the trailer for My 600-Lb Life, we see some really large people. One of them feels the biggest disappointment of the day is actually being alive. Another woman says she never imagined she’d be “the largest person most people have ever met.” Meanwhile, yet another feels her “body betrayed” her. Actually, the body doesn’t do that. These people betray themselves. But, at the end of the day, as Dr. Now says, he can’t fix their heads. They need to work at making it better for themselves.
One of the My 600-Lb cast members believes that losing weight’s “impossible.” He notes,” Food’s like a drug to me.” Well, fans know that food and sugary drinks really do act like a drug. Fans reacted to the trailer, and here’s what some of them said:
- “A woman just said her body has betrayed her… u betrayed yourself, it’s not rocket science… overeating kills.”
- “892 pounds? Holy moly I can’t wait!”
- “The problem seems like it has gotten worse. Just hard to watch.”
- “I keep thinking I’m bad with how I eat then I watch this show and say to myself nah.”
- “It’s shocking what the human body can do, wow.”
