Where Is Isaac Martinez From My 600-Lb Life Now?

Obesity and overeating are two problems that are often found within American culture, and although they are challenging obstacles to overcome, people can do it, as demonstrated on TLC's "My 600-lb Life."

One of the individuals from Season 9 was Isaac Martinez, a 23-year-old who weighed 661 pounds at the initial weigh-in. Isaac struggled with food from a young age and quickly turned to it as a vice after his mother suffered a debilitating stroke, according to Soap Dirt. After that, the weight kept coming on, eventually disrupting his social life and ability to perform day-to-day activities. When his mother was diagnosed with cancer, Isaac took it upon himself to care for the family, usually cooking for everyone. This only worsened his weight, which was above 300 pounds by the time he was 14. It didn't take long before Isaac suffered from a cardiac arrest, and he was eventually diagnosed with cellulitis, which could lead to a coma, according to XYZ.

Finally, enough was enough, and Isaac made the call to Dr. Now so he could try to improve his life. Although fans witnessed the ups and downs of Isaac's weight loss journey, they were left without any definitive answers as to what happened to him following the end of the episode.

So, where is Isaac Martinez from "My 600-lb Life" now?

Living a private and healthier life

Unfortunately for fans, the episode cut right after Isaac was approved for the surgery but was told he had to continue to lose weight for another two months. Little information has been shared since the episode finished. While on "My 600-Lb Life," Isaac lost 122 pounds in a year and weighed 539 pounds by the end of his episode. Since then, his life has become somewhat of a mystery.

The Texas native set all of his social media to private following the episode, providing fans with few details of his progress since the episode's conclusion. According to Reality Titbit, the young man is still living in Houston and is currently single. On the bright side, he can move around his house without a walker and can perform day-to-day activities without assistance from others. Unfortunately, that's about all the information available at the moment. Before the episode ended, Isaac showed more progress by attempting to link up with some old friends, according to The Cinemaholic.

It's safe to assume he is still taking care of his family, but hopefully, he is prioritizing his health. Before the episode ended, Isaac left fans with an inspiring message, "I'm not making any more excuses, and I'm going to make my family proud, and I'm not going to stop until that happens."
