'My 600-lb Life': What happened to Carrie? Meet the food addict who thrives on 'foodgasms' from chicken pasta
Food drives some people and Carrie is one of them. 'Lunch motivates me a lot,' she says aware of the fact that her body will shut down if she continues eating like she does
The subject of this week's episode on 'My 600-lb Life' is Carrie. Now she's someone with a regular day job, a luxury quite rare to people who have appeared on this show before. Most of them find it next to impossible to find a job because employers turn them away looking at their size. This was once again confirmed by Samantha Mason who appeared on the season premiere episode of this season. She had to turn to fetish modeling wherein she ate to get paid on the dark web. But Samantha got lucky. At the time of filming, she was working as a full-time receptionist at a doctor's office. Here's all you need to know about her.
Who is Carrie on 'My 600-lb Life'?
Carrie is a thirty-something morbidly obese woman. The official synopsis of the episode she features on states, "Twenty years after her father died as the result of a botched weight-loss surgery, Carrie is on the brink of eating herself to death; she must face the fear and grief of losing her father and end a cycle of toxic behavior with her husband, Chris."
Carrie isn't stuck at home like the rest of the people who appear on the show and many might think that her work-life distracts her from eating excessively. It is true to some extent because judging by the looks of the trailer, she eats just one meal while she's at work. However, staying away from her big bag of takeaway for lunch of what appears to be soft shell tacos, fries, as well as mac and cheese and fried chicken along with various dips is a Herculean task that she just fails at. "It's never too early for lunch," she says. But Carrie is aware that she's getting to a point where she won't be able to go to work anymore. She does guzzle down her food but at the same time, there's a lot of remorse about the fact that she let her body get to where it is now. Carrie says she's aware that her body is out of control and that she's reaching a breaking point.
Carrie is unable to stop eating. The only thing that is able to hinder her train of thoughts that always lead to food is a time clock that she has to maintain at work. If her job didn't entail that part, she says she would spend more time focused on food. She speaks about food with a lot of passion, which is quite unhealthy to watch and it appears that she thrives on "foodgasms". She also says that she feels like she's in a relationship with food and like all other things, she's also aware of the fact that this might create a rift between Chris and her. Tune in to the episode to watch her story unfold.
'My 600-lb Life' airs Wednesdays at 8 pm ET on TLC.
