Just when we thought that this obese woman would change her life after seven years, everyone was shocked to hear that Amber Rachdi hit 600 pounds! Her excess weight even prohibited her from properly walking and standing up.

Wanting to change this difficult life, Amber joined the reality show “My 600-lb Life” in an effort to improve her health. It was a great decision because it encouraged her to go under gastric bypass surgery and to follow a strict lifestyle change.
