My 600-lb life star Krystal Hall appeared on the latest season of the popular TLC show. Struggling with many health issues that were due to her weight issue, Krystal knew she needed Dr. Now’s expert help to shed some pounds. Krystal showed Dr. Now that she could lose the weight so that she could get the surgery, but did she go through with it? Let’s see what information we can find on Krystal and her journey.
Krystal Hall had a rough childhood
Krystal had a hard life growing up and admitted that she was abused physically by her mother’s boyfriend. But that wasn’t all, She was molested by a cousin between age 5 to 13. Later in life, the boyfriend’s brother assaulted her and her sister. Krystal decided to turn to food as a coping mechanism to deal with the pain. She quickly realized that the bigger in size she got, the less she got touched, so she kept eating and gaining weight in hope that it would keep the perpetrators away, according to an article written by Meaww.
Krystal Hall turned to Dr. Now for help
Krystal knew she needed Dr. Now’s help, she suffered from many health issues from diabetes, high blood pressure, and stomach issues. She also suffered from PCOS which made it hard to conceive children. However, Krystal was a wonderful mother to her nephew Josh that she was eventually able to adopt. When the Ohio native made the trip to Houston she weighed in at a whopping 618 lbs. After sticking to Dr. Now’s strict diet she was able to get down to a weight of 527 lbs for a total loss of 91 lbs.
Coronavirus vs. surgery
After losing close to 100lbs, Dr. Now cleared Krystal for the gastric bypass surgery. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, a lockdown was imposed right after she was approved for weight loss surgery. In quarantine, Krystal turned to old habits and as a result, she ended up gaining 53 pounds back. Dr. Now told Krystal to lose the pounds she put on and to move to Houston to be monitored by him if she ever hoped to get the surgery. Krystal did exactly what the Dr. told her and the episode ended with her and her supportive family moving to Texas.
What we know now about Krystal
It seems that Krystal was able to get the surgery. She is active on Facebook and her bio states that she resides in Chillicothe, Ohio, and works at Chillicothe Cab Company. However, Krystal made her account private. She even made her Facebook photos hidden. Unfortunately, it seems that until she’s ready to show the world her weight loss, we will all have to just sit back and wait patiently!
