An urgent call for action was necessary to ensure the safety of lives at stake!
Since childhood, Kandi and Brandi had been using food as a coping mechanism for their stress.
Frustrated by their parents’ lack of attention, the girls sought solace in sweets, forming an unhealthy habit that persisted over the years.
As they grew older, their parents resorted to feeding them fast food to keep them occupied and out of the way, neglecting the negative consequences of such an approach.
Unsurprisingly, this eating pattern had detrimental effects.
Problems arose at school, where the girls faced bullying from unkind peers.
As teenagers, they both weighed over 220 pounds, and their weight continued to escalate, exacerbating the situation.
Eventually, Kandi and Brandi reached a breaking point with their parents and decided to venture out on their own.
However, this change of environment did little to alter their eating habits.
Taking on jobs as salespeople to support themselves, the sisters found themselves trapped in a vicious cycle.
Their consumption of unhealthy foods like fast food, candy, and sugary sodas kept their weight on an upward trajectory, making it increasingly difficult for them to function in their professional lives.
With their health deteriorating, Kandi and Brandi made the brave decision to seek help from the renowned TV show “My 600-Lb Life” when their weights surpassed 550 pounds each.
Thus began a long and arduous journey in pursuit of well-being.
The sisters received treatment from top specialists, with a dietitian providing dietary guidance and psychiatrists offering their expertise.
Each sister set individual weight loss goals, and progress started to be made.
However, due to medical considerations, they had to undergo stomach reduction surgeries.
While Brandi successfully went through the procedure, Kandi faced a life-threatening situation due to her heart condition.
Thankfully, everything turned out well in the end.
Although the show has ended, Kandi and Brandi continue to prioritize their health.
They regularly attend the gym and maintain a balanced diet.
Brandi even found love, got married, and became a mother.
On the other hand, Kandi is taking her time with marriage, focusing instead on fulfilling her desire to travel extensively and fully embrace her new life.
