She found hope with Dr. Nowzaradan or Dr. Now. He put Christina on a strict diet and recommended exercise before she could do gastric bypass surgery.
Showing The Doctor that shes ready
Christina lost enough weight to convince Dr. Now that she was ready for the surgery. While she was excited to be taking the next step in getting healthy, it didn’t seem that her husband felt the same way. Christina was ready to be independent but Zach wasn’t ready for her to lose her dependency on him. Her husband’s reluctance didn’t faze Christina and she went on with the weight loss surgery. However, She and Zach got divorced but Christina ultimately carried on her journey and she lost an amazing 525 pounds.
A new issue arose for Christina Phillips
