My600lblife Marla bedridden frustrated and desperate to get excess skin surgery so she can finally live life again

On tonight's episode of My600LbLife Where Are They Now? we check back in with season three's Marla McCants from Nashville, Tennessee.

When we first met Marla last year, she was an estimated 800Lbs in weight.

She was bedridden and totally dependent on her daughters, Britney, Sierra and Adele, for her every day needs and care.

As Popdust previously reported, Marla, a self-confessed junk food junkie, was literally eating herself to death—and seemed unable to stop.

Growing up, Marla never had an issue with her weight—but that changed after a deeply traumatic event occurred at the hands of her then-boyfriend.

When Marla tried to break-up with the boyfriend he “lost it".

Like seriously lost it.

He kidnapped Marla, held her at gunpoint and even shot the two police officers who tried to rescue her before she finally managed to escape.

She was terrified to leave the house following the ordeal, and lived in constant fear of the boyfriend tracking her down and kidnapping her again.

Marla turned to junk food for comfort and began seriously overeating.

By the time the boyfriend was finally apprehended, Marla was already 700Lbs and her junk food addiction was firmly ingrained.

Her addiction became so ridiculously out of control that doctors warned the 44-year-old that she may only have weeks to live.

However, with a lot of dedication and hard work, Marla finally managed to lose the pounds required to undergo weight loss surgery.

Eight months on and she has continued to drop the pounds—an astounding 266 of them!

Marla is now down to 534 pounds—but, the excess skin she's been left with following her drastic weight loss, is seriously hampering her mobility.

So, despite all her hard work and discipline, Marla is still pretty much bedridden.

And, not surprisingly, she's frustrated as hell.

my600lblife susan’s excess skin

Tonight’s episode of My600Lb Life: Where Are They Now? documents Susan's weight loss journey.

Susan has come on leaps and bounds since her weight loss surgery.

As Popdust previously reported, Susan has struggled with her weight since she was a small child—but things took a turn for the worse following a violent altercation with her father, when she was 17.

Before surgery, she was unable to even walk around the supermarket without sitting down every couple of minutes.

But now, she is able to walk for two miles plus without a problem.

She is also using a friend’s pool to swim and exercise every day.

Susan explains that her doctor wants her to get her weight below 300Lb before he will perform surgery to remove all the excess skin that has formed following her drastic weight loss.

So, she is working hard to reach that goal.

Susan is desperate for the surgery, as the weight of all the skin is causing her serious back pain.

“I don’t think I can live a normal life without the surgery,” she admits.

“I know it sounds kinda silly, but the first thing I am going to do, once the skin is removed, is that I am going to get a pair of jeans.

“Because I haven’t worn a pair of jeans since high school.”

Now, how bad can the excess skin problem be?

Well, brace yourselves, because Susan shows us exactly how horrific it can be—and it is truly not for the faint of heart.

This is lymphedema,” she explains, as she lifts the large roll of skin. “It’s really heavy and pulls on my whole body.

“And then also, I have this hidden piece of lymphedema hidden underneath, that gets really bothersome.

“This whole belly just needs to go. Having it gone will be like being set free from prison.

“I just hope I’ve lost enough weight when I see the doctor, that we can just get this done.”

melissa mccarthy body image crusade

Melissa McCarthy is on a one-woman body image crusade.

The 45-year-old is sick of women being judged and ranked by size, and she’s evoking Gloria Steinem to help spread her message.

Emily Ratajkowski Is Too A Feminist So Stop Your Hating!

Distorted reflections melissa mccarthy body image crusade

McCarthy, who recently underwent an amazing slim-down, and claims to be a size 14 these days, posted on Instagram:

She captioned the image:

We have to stop categorizing and judging women based on their bodies.

We are teaching young girls to strive for unattainable perfection instead of feeling healthy and happy in their own skin.

Taylor Swift Is A ‘Nazi Barbie,’ Says Feminist Scholar Camille Paglia

Adding a quote from Steinem:

Imagine we are linked not ranked.

Make connections melissa mccarthy body image crusade

Amber Rose Is A Bad Bitch Feminist—Wants Y’All To Stop Slut Shaming

The Steinem quote comes from a speech the renown feminist gave back in April 2014.

Steinem spoke about how making connections can allow people to "see the world more wholly."

By connecting the way in which our everyday surroundings can contribute to larger societal issues, people can begin to come up with positive, practical solutions.

Becoming linked to the natural world then allows people to see there is no such thing as a hierarchy or pyramid, but a circle.

There is no such thing as gender, race or class. They are cultural inventions.... We are linked, not ranked.

There's nothing more radical than listening.

Not the norm melissa mccarthy body image crusade

Spice Girl Mel B—I Wouldn’t Call Myself a Feminist

McCarthy is a vocal advocate for changing societal standards of judging women by their appearance and size.

She told Refinery 29:

I know I am not the 'norm.' It never occurs to me in terms of being a role model, though, because I don't know any perfect women.

If I, off the top of my head, name 20 of the most amazing women in my life, it's all shapes, sizes, ages, colors, jobs. I can only go off my reality.

What people pass off as 'normal,' I just have to keep in my head that it's bullshit. It’s all fictitious, made-up stuff.

I know some of those women in those magazines who get called perfect or whose butt is supposedly better, and often they don’t even look like that in person.

And they would die — they don't want you to compare who wore it better. They would be more horrified than anybody else that you're pitting them against each other and judging.

You don't do that with guys. You don't see two guys next to each other and somebody going, ‘Who's got the better knees? Who's got old knees? Who's got weird feet?’ I want to get rid of constantly categorizing.

Lists give somebody a way to shove and tear down women. Those women that are always shown, that we're all supposed to be like, is like .000009% of human beings.

That's crazy. That's like saying, ‘We're all going to get a perm and get green hair, right?’

You'd be like, ‘All of us?’ No, knock yourself out with your perm, but if we all did it, that would be bizarre.

Amen to that Ms. McCarthy.

In the red corner, standing 6 feet tall and weighing in at 248.8 pounds, Rob Kardashian!

In the blue corner, weighing in at an impressive buck 50 and standing a diminutive 5 feet 2 inches, Blac Chyna!

But if the 27-year-old mother of one has anything to say about it, they’ll both be in great…well, let’s make that better shape for their walk down the aisle!

Once You See Blac Chyna’s Behemothic Bare Butt, You Can’t Unsee It

Rob hopes to shed another 50lbs—he has already dropped quite a few pounds since he began dating Blac Chyna, who, as Popdust previously reported, became his fiancé earlier this week—an announcement that has been met with stony silence from his family.

Blac has pledged on social media to train Rob down to his goal of “210lbs or 200lbs.” and has told him she will train him "every day for the next five weeks", prior to her birthday on May 11, when she will turn 28.

On Snapchat, as well as posting a pic of Rob on the scales, Chyna also shared a video of Rob sweating profusely on a treadmill. So thanks for that, Chyna.

Hustler Proposes Sex Tape to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

Whilst we've all been having lots of fun imagining the behind closed doors reactions of the Klan to the news that there is soon to be a new Mrs Kardashian, Chyna's ex-fiance Tyga, who is also the father of her three-year-old son King Cairo and also dating her soon to be half sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner, has claimed on Twitter to be happy for her.

TMZ report however that Blac Chyna is calling BS on this and that his public support is just a front while he is actually trying to destroy her life.

Let's not forget he's filed legal documents to try to get custody of their son and TMZ sources say he won't even speak directly to his baby mama—they have to communicate through the nanny.

Have to say—we're inclined to believe her on this one.

Now there's a thought—surely any program where you wank the weight off is a good thing?

Has such a program been invented?

Well apparently it has! A Japanese woman is saying that she jerked her way to a healthy weight—and we have to believe her because she has a PhD and everything!

Ramani Durvasula is a physchologist and found herself 80lbs overweight after getting out of her unhappy sex-free marriage. She needed to focus on getting the pounds off and staying on her diet for the long haul, so she developed a unique method of rewarding herself for sticking to her diet and fitness plan.

Sounding scarily logical, Durvasula explains that she devised a list of things that gave her pleasure, to use as a reward when she successfully managed not to succumb to her favorite fattening foods. The list was pretty short—reading, writing and having orgasms. Presumably as her marriage was sexless she'd been at it a lot, so it's only natural that's what sprung to her mind when she tried to figure out what she enjoyed.

She says;

"It's a very simple premise of human behavior that if a behavior is followed by a reward, we tend to repeat it...I put the cookie down, I masturbate, I have an orgasm—and I associate putting down a cookie with an orgasm. Basically the reward has to be rewarding."

Kinda like teaching a dog sit because it knows it's going to get a treat.

But what happens when you fancy a cookie when you are at work? Or walking down the street? Or at your parents' house? You can't exactly knock one out and expect horrified onlookers to understand that you are just rewarding yourself.

The orgasmic doctor has the answer to this conundrum;

"At times I couldn't get the job done, I would try my other pleasures, or make a date with myself for later."

There you have it. All you need to reach your goal weight is to program 'tossing time' into your day.

Would this work for you? Resist the cookies and promise yourself an orgasmic treat later? Let's hope the urge to cheat doesn't come upon you too often or you will literally never leave the house.

And hey! Why stop there? Make a list of all the chores you hate and allow yourself a little personal pleasure when you get something ticked off your to-do list!

  • Unload the dishwasher—check! (Jerk off)
  • Take out the trash—check! (Jerk off)
  • Gas up the car—check! (Jerk off)...

(Ladies maybe stocking up on batteries should be the first thing on your to-do list....)

Farting Burn Calories

Scrolling through my Facebook feed over the weekend I came across a post stating that just one fart burns 67 calories and that 52 farts can burn off one pound of fat!

I was very excited.

Whoopi Goldberg Farts On The View

Now I am not a massively prolific farter, it's certainly not something I'm known for, but hey it's January, I've got a little holiday weight to get off so am looking for any way that doesn't involve cutting down on food or going to the gym to lose it.

Most people pass gas on average 13-21 times per day, so to up my quota and beat the bulge I've stocked up on bran, beans and soda. What could be easier than passing a little gas to blow off a few pounds? Instead of clenching to keep them in, who knows how many I could set free—52 maybe? If you add in the sneaky ones that escape while I'm asleep, I could be looking like Angelina Jolie by the end of the month!

Scientists Prove That Smelling Farts Can Help Prevent Cancer

Before I started parping the day away though, I thought I better research the Facebook FACT that has actually been around since 2012—and it seems I'm not the only one as when you type "does f" into Google the default is "does farting burn calories".

My search quickly led me to Snopes, and I am sad to say that once again they have shattered my illusion. Apparently there are no calories burned at all whilst farting, all the work is done by the gas itself. Big fat zero. In fact the only way  to actually burn any calories when letting rip is if you really strain to push one out—which obviously should be avoided as it leaves you vulnerable to unwelcome follow through.

So there you have it, just when I thought I could butt burp my way down a couple of dress sizes, my hopes are dashed.


I have discovered that typing burns 32 calories an hour—so if I do 109 hours of research into ways to lose weight other than diet and exercise, I will actually lose a pound!
