My 600 Lb Life Died on the TV Series Cindy
After her father died, Cindy was left with an extremely lonely life. She had no significant other, no kids, no dog and no kitty to take care of. She drank heavily, was abused and was constantly hungry.
As she grew older, her eating habit deteriorated. She gained 500 pounds at the age of 30 and around 615 pounds by the time she reached 45.
She had no friends or family to help her and had a hard time going to the toilet because she was so heavy. Luckily, she met Sandy, who talked her into seeking help from Dr. Now, a Houston-based weight loss doctor.
On the show, Cindy was put on a strict diet and physiotherapy program. She was told she should lose 70 pounds, but she only managed to lose 40.
The episode also showed her living with a woman named Denise, who was her home health aide. During her stay, she had to change the sanitary poo pad placed underneath her patient. However, she didn’t use gloves when doing so, which means she probably wiped her hands on the poop.
While she was at the home, she also started to have a problem with her poop. She was unable to stand for more than 2 minutes at a time, which meant she relied on her caretaker to bring her food.
What’s worse is that Cindy was constantly being lied to by her caretaker. She swore she had a bed for her, but when we saw her laying in it, it was a very narrow, uncomfortable chair that wouldn’t support her weight. And she was being kept in a room that didn’t have an actual bathroom.
I was rewatching this episode today, and I have to say that it was one of the most heartbreaking episodes I’ve seen in a long time. It was so obvious that this woman was a liar and a scam artist.
At one point, she was lying to the camera about her family money. She was even saying that she had an annuity, an inheritance and a bank book, but it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with her health problems or weight gain.
She was a very big woman and her life had been pretty much ruined by her weight. It’s almost like she was a prisoner of her own body.
Her family didn’t have the money to pay for her care, so she had to rely on strangers. This made her extremely depressed and triggered her eating disorder.
Despite her pain, she kept trying to fight her addiction. She was also able to lose a lot of weight after she underwent gastric bypass surgery, but it’s still a sad story.
Sadly, this isn’t the first celebrity from the show to die. Henry Foots, who was on the show during its debut season, died in 2013. He was a Texas native who had a very successful weight loss journey on the show. He weighed 715 pounds when he came on the show, and he dropped 340 pounds.
