Since My 600-lb Life debuted in 2012, viewers have seen dozens of morbidly obese hopefuls embark on their weight loss journeys with the ultimate goal of receiving medical intervention from Dr. Younan Nowzaradan aka Dr. Now.
Bianca Hayes was one of those looking for help. While many of the people who appeared on the reality program tried to lose weight on their own over the years, the influence of the show and the power of Dr. Now’s stern guidance often prove to be the right motivating factors for them to get the results they’re looking for.
Bianca Hayes was introduced to fans of the show as someone who was hoping the doctor would approve her second weight loss procedure.
The show explained that the first time she had a gastric bypass, she successfully lost quite a bit of weight. However, she then met a man and got married. When she became pregnant, she gained the weight back. On My 600-lb Life, she made the case for why she needed to lose that weight the surgical way again.
Bianca Hayes’ Tough Life
The reality TV alum explained one of the reasons she struggled so much with her weight is because it was tied to childhood trauma. She said that her mother struggled with alcohol addiction, and that she would often give Bianca Hayes food in order to placate her while she drank.
Eventually, things did improve for her when her mom married her stepfather. However, she soon dealt with tremendous loss as her mom, her stepdad, and her biological father all died within the span of just a few years.
On the show, she explained that, because of her weight, her husband Romonte was doing the majority of the housework and the cooking for their family. Though she contributed by working at a call center, she also wanted to get healthy so she could be more present for her family.
When she went to see Dr. Now, she weighed in at 604 pounds. After some drama Dr. Now did approve Bianca Hayes for the operation and he put in a gastric sleeve. By the end of the episode, she had lost a total of 140 pounds.
What’s Happened Since?
There’s both good and bad in Bianca Hayes’ life since she got the second procedure. She’s taken to Facebook to announce her weight loss has continued. On the other hand, her romantic life hasn’t been as good.
She and Romonte were having some issues in their marriage. While she hasn’t made an official announcement about any sort of split, it appears they’re over. She’s made several social media posts over the last few months talking about single parents. She’s also made comments about how she’s lonely, romantically.
