TLC is bringing back one of the most popular shows on the network, 'My 600-lb Life', to ring in the new year. Season 8 of the show aired on January 8, 2020, and Season 9 is returning to close off the year with a bang and will continue showcasing the journeys of insanely obese people and their weight loss journeys. Their path is laced with their addiction to food which is hard to let go and the ups and downs in their personal relationships too take a toll on them, setting them back.

The show does a great job of respectfully presenting the journeys of these people and audiences have struck a connection with most of the cast, especially Erica Wall who featured on Episode 5 of Season 8 that aired on April 22, 2020. Erica had led a life full of tragedies, including being fat-shamed by her father, being raped, losing her mom and not being able to go to the hospital to say her final goodbye, and having broken up with her boyfriend Jimmy.
