Tipping the scales at nearly 700 pounds, 51-year-old Pauline knows it’s time to make a change in her life — because she isn’t only killing herself, but she’s also slowing killing her son, who happens to be her primary caregiver.
On this week’s episode of My 600-lb Life, she promises to turn her life around in hopes of saving her son, who admits he “can’t wait for the day [he] doesn’t have to help her.”

While he struggles to keep helping his mother, she fears something even worse: The day he won’t have to — because it’ll be too late.
“I’ll probably die in my bed one day and I don’t want my son to find me,” she says fighting back tears. “I feel like I’ve done enough damage to him that that’ll be the final straw.”
