Lashanta From

Unrecognizable
Now
By MARIA FELIX
In Season 7 of "My 600-Lb Life" Lashanta White was introduced to viewers weighing 662 pounds. Standing at 5'2", she had been bedridden for two years and struggled to care for her four children. Lashanta's boyfriend Jeremy left her because he didn’t support her weight-loss journey so she pressed on with the help of her children.
Nine months after her initial meeting with weight loss surgeon Dr. Nowzaradan, Lashanta had only lost 113 pounds but a year later, with determination, for gastric bypass surgery. Lashanta now posts original songs to her YouTube page, her Instagram lists her as a jingle writer and songwriter, and she regularly posts short videos for her 52.7 thousand followers
While the singer has kept her weight under wraps since her episode premiered, she often appears with a wide variety of fun hair and makeup styles and advertises her writing services on both her IG and Facebook pages. Although the star hasn't mentioned any future television appearances, that may change when "My 600-Lb Life" returns to the air.
