'1000-lb Best Friends': Jakie lashes out at Meghan for helping Vannessa move
After the slightly disastrous Florida trip that got the gang concerned over Meghan trying to drown her sorrows in alcohol, Vannessa and Meghan are back at Dr Procter's. Meghan has been dreading this visit since they usually give her anxiety anyway. Still, seeing that her emotional turmoil over her self-image has worsened, these visits are more complicated than ever. And it turns out, she ended up getting some extremely unfortunate news.
Dr Procter noted that Meghan's weight loss had stalled at 329lb, which should be much lower. He hoped that she would have dropped at least another 50lb and entered the 275lb category with her current visit. However, when Meghan took to the scales, her weight was 303lb, proving that she had not lost much weight. Dr Procter explained that the window for her to lose weight was getting smaller and that Meghan was one of his less successful patients.
Meghan was hurt upon hearing that since she claimed she was doing or at least trying to do all the right things, yet somehow kept coming up short. Dr Procter noted that it had been a year and a half since her surgery, and if she wanted to make a change in her life, she would have to commit to it and do so herself.
What do you think? Will Meghan be able to drop the weight? Or will her habits get in the way of her achieving a healthy life? Sound off in the comments below.
