On TLC's My 600-lb Life, Paula, a 39-year-old mother of four, has built up an emotional wall around herself after her husband's death in 2012 from obesity-related complications. She's eaten more and her weight has risen to nearly 550 pounds. Now, she fears she may end up like her husband.
Paula doesn't want to leave her children without parents, and she fears that her kids will be made fun of by their peers because of her weight.
In this emotional clip, we see the difficulty Paula's children face, having to take care of themselves, the household and even Paula herself due to her weight holding her back from being able to manage tasks. Will Paula find the strength to lose the weight?
My 600-lb Life airs Tuesday, February 11 at 9/8c on TLC.
