She’s getting married! My 600-lb Life star Chay Guillory announced that she’s engaged to the man of her dreams in a heartwarming message shared via Instagram. The TLC alum posted a photo of her dazzling diamond ring and proudly revealed that she said “yes” to Patrick’s proposal.

“Patrick and I want to sincerely thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support surrounding our engagement. It means so much to us and we are over the moon,” Chay gushed in another statement shared to her page this week. “I’m so excited for this next chapter of my life, and have never been happier. God bless all of you, and once again thank you abundantly.”

Chay has been very open about her weight loss journey while appearing on the hit reality show, and she’s continued to share updates with fans online. The TLC alum has inspired people everywhere, especially after coming out to the world as a transgender woman. During a previous Where Are They Now? special, Chay spoke about her trials and tribulations, as well as her hopes for the future.

“I feel like for so long I have lived a lie,” Chay said. “I was trapped in a 600-lb body and now I started to believe I can do this. And once I lose the weight, it will be possible for me to be the person I have always identified as — and that person is a woman.”

The reality star later admitted that she’s noticed some major changes in her confidence. “My body moves easier,” Chay revealed. “There is more pep in my step, and I just feel so much better, and I can do so much more.”

Most recently, Chay has made even more strides and has almost achieved her goal weight of 180 pounds — dropping an impressive 40 pounds in only one month. She’s also doing well at her new job! Back in April, she shared a photo cozying up to her groom-to-be. The reality star captioned the PDA snap, “Never knew I could love someone so much, and then you came along.”
