My 600-Lb Life’: Dr Now suggests Charity and Charly go for psychotherapy after the duo gains more weight
But, Dr Now feels they aren’t supportive of each other and belives they’ll gain all the weight again
The mother and daughter duo Charity and Charly who appeared in Season 3 of ‘My 600-lb Life’ have come a long way with their weight loss transformation. However, the journey wasn’t an easy road for either, due to their parched relationship.
Tonight’s (May 13) episode of ‘My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?’ follows them three years after they last appeared on the show and embarked on the weight loss journey. After losing around 800 pounds collectively since their respective weight-loss surgeries, Charity and Charly hope to achieve their goal weight by next year. However, when they meet with Dr Nowzaradan, things do not go according to the plan.
On stepping on the scale, both Charity and Charly realize that they’ve gained more weight instead of shedding the extra pounds as they were asked to, to be approved for the skin removal surgery. While Charity is rather worried about not being eligible for further procedures, Charly is of opinion that her mother isn’t being as supportive. Although the latter believes they should work as a team to be able to achieve their target weight, her mother Charity seems to fail to understand her.
While both Charity and Charlie were looking forward to hearing from Dr Now that they are at least close to getting the excess skin removed, the surgeon bluntly warns then about heading back in the wrong direction.
While Charly uses this as an opportunity to work on herself, Charity strongly feels that she doesn’t deserve to be deprived of a certain procedure owing to her past which involved overdosing on unprescribed painkillers. Dr Now even tells the duo that the negative dynamic they share is the reason for their weight gain and recommends psychotherapy as they aren’t able to completely help each other.
He even tells Charly that he would consider skin removal surgery on her if she loses more weight with psychotherapy. But, Charity leaves the hospital disappointed with the fact that Dr Now did not once mention her skin removal. She also denies that she and Charly are bogged down by any kind of negative elements.
But, Dr Now feels they aren’t supportive of each other and belives they’ll gain all the weight again. After recommending psychotherapy, he asks them to visit him again in two months.
