'My 600-lb Life': Lee and Rena's love story started with their weight but ended on cheating
Lee Sutton and Rena Kiser's love story had been unlike any that people had seen before. The pair appeared on the show because their weight was slowly taking over their life. Lee weighed 714lbs while Rena weighed 542lbs. The pair had met each other at a bariatric rehabilitation facility.
Lee revealed that he first met Rena when she came to meet her brother at the center. As fate might have it, Rena's brother was Lee's roommate. Lee recalled watching Rena take care of her brother and how he would think about having someone who cared as much as she did. While the center did not allow any room for relationships to be formed, Lee and Rena knew that their connection was worth giving up on their time at the rehab.
The two left the center together and started dating. Being in a relationship for nearly 11 years, Lee and Rena had plans of getting married. Lee was sure that Rena was the one for him while Rena too believed the same. Even though there was no ring on the finger or an actual proposal, the pair was sure that their relationship will get through everything.
The pair got on the show with the hopes of losing weight together. Dr Younan Nowzaradan took them in and put them on a diet that they had to follow. While the pair managed to lose weight and got approved for surgery, their relationship had slowly been straining. Lee's aggressive behavior was affecting their relationship and they would often fight about silly things.
While Rena seemed to get a hold of her eating habits, Lee was finding it hard to do. During one of his consultations after the surgery, Dr Nowzaradan found out that Lee had put on more weight. Lee tried to explain that he was not at fault and stormed out of the room.
Lee's aggression was slowly taking control of him and the pair was having a hard time getting their relationship back to normal. While they managed to lose weight, their relationship did not improve.
After the show, it was found out that the pair was no longer together. Rena took to her social media to share a post about cheating and she had tagged Lee in it. Rena stated that a cheater always remains a cheater, hinting that their relationship had ended because of a cheating incident. While the pair lost weight, it seems like they also lost each other.
'My 600-lb Life' airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
