This week on A&E’s Heavy, a 400 pound 44 year old virgin named Debbie gave a heart breaking story, of dealing with being overweight for most of life. Not unlike millions of obese people she has suffered several traumatic events while growing, which made her turn to food for comfort.
Debbie has a magnetic personality, which seems to camouflage what is really going on in her life.
Debbie is an emotional binge eater, which caused her to weigh 500 pounds at one point and endangering her life.
Her father was extremely worried, that he was going to lose his daughter if she did not get her weight under control.
The life threatening diseases caused by obesity, such as diabetes, heart failure, high blood pressure and some types of cancer were threatening to shorten her life. She now suffers from cellulitis, sleep apnea, and gastro esophageal reflux disease.
Debbie stated she wanted to face her food addition and learn how to control it, so she will never have to battle weight loss again. She also wants financially independent, move out of her parent’s home and re-enroll in nurses training. She dreams of finding someone special and having an intimate loving relationship, like the one her parent’s have.
