My 600-lb Life cast member Angela Gutierrez is one of the more controversial stars to appear on the popular weight-loss transformation show on TLC. What has she been up to since filming on her episode wrapped?
My 600-lb Life: Angela Gutierrez’s TLC Journey
At the beginning of her My 600-lb Life journey with Dr Now in Houston, Angela was 608 pounds. That isn’t as bad as some cases on the show. In the beginning, she was determined to drop the pounds and have a more active role in living her life once again.
Meanwhile, despite her good intentions at the start, that motivation didn’t seem to last long. Consequently, it’s something that came back to bite Angela Gutierrez in a big way on her episode of My 600-lb Life. She eventually dropped out of the weight-loss program. At the time, this made her only the second person in the show’s history to do so.
Angela Drops Out of Dr Now’s Program
A huge part of any My 600-lb Life weight-loss program or lifestyle change is sticking to it. In Angela Gutierrez’s case, she went through weight-loss surgery in the past. Moreover, she dropped a significant amount of weight as a result. However, life dealt her a difficult blow. In many ways, that sent her spiraling back to her bad habits.
Angela Gutierrez lost custody of her children. In addition, she went through a suicide attempt. So things were not in a good place for her even before she sought out Dr Now’s help. Still, even when she got on the program, she didn’t fully commit to it. Moreover, she didn’t lose any weight while on it as a result.
The My 600-lb Life star eventually returned to Ohio. At one point during a call with the good doctor, she claimed to have dropped 120 pounds on her own. As one might expect, Dr Now was skeptical of her claims. But she seemed more than okay with the choice she made to drop out of his program and return home.
Where is My 600-lb Life Star Now?
Based on the latest online updates from the My 600-lb Life star, she seems to keep the weight on. Moreover, for better or worse, she seems content with where she is now. Interestingly, she recently shared a clip from the TLC show – commenting on how it has been two years since her journey.
Angela Gutierrez added that appearing on My 600-lb Life was one of the “biggest mistakes” of her life. Still, even those among her fanbase largely disagree with that sentiment. Either way, she does her own thing. She may not have lost the weight, but she’s certainly still kicking. In addition, even if her story may not be a “success,” she seems at peace with the choices she made to get where she is.
