This Is What
Shannon From My
600-Lb Life Has
Been Up To
For nearly a decade now, audiences have tuned in to “My 600-Lb Life” to see the extreme lengths people will go to in order to receive an all-important surgery that could save their lives from morbid obesity. New episodes continue to be released, and in the show's ninth season, which aired in 2021, viewers got to meet Shannon Lowery of Tucson, Arizona.
The program wasn’t easy for Lowery, but by the end of her episode, she was able to lose 80 pounds over the course of 13 months. It's a far cry from the 150 pounds Dr. Now wanted her to lose in just two months, but at least it was progress in the right direction.
After her stint on the show, Lowery posted on Facebook on Feb.18, 2021, that she needed to relocate to Houston to "get surgery to save [her] life," but was having difficulties locating an affordable apartment. Fortunately, many of her new fans from her appearance on the show were quick to offer her advice on how to find Section 8 housing.
