Back in 2015 when her episode aired, Amber Rachdi was 23 years old and weighed 657 lbs. Unable to stand for more than 30 minutes at a time she was often bound to a wheelchair or motorized scooter in order to get around.
With the help of Dr. Now and a therapist, Rachdi underwent gastric bypass surgery and made positive changes to regain her health and independence. By the end of the year, she had lost 257 lbs and vowed not to return to her former bad habits.
Since the show, Rachdi continued losing weight, she's now a social media influencer with over 200K followers on Instagram and a plus-size model. The former TLC star stays active on social media giving advice to her fans and advocating for body positivity and mental health.
