Keep up the good work! June McCamey weighed around 590 pounds when she was first introduced to the world on My 600-lb Life, and since then, she’s made incredible strides. In fact, June is one of the show’s biggest success stories.
June appeared on the series back in 2015, and by the time the episode aired in 2016, she managed to drop down to just 242 pounds. In other words, June lost more than half of her weight since the show began documenting her journey. Luckily for fans, June reportedly confirmed that she’s been filming for her third episode of Where Are They Now?, and that it’s scheduled to air in 2019.
In October, June shared a word of encouragement with her followers. “It is perfectly OK with not being perfectly OK all the time. Because those with the strength to succeed in the long run are the ones who lay a firm foundation of growth with the bricks life has thrown at them,” she wrote.
“Don’t be afraid to fall apart for a little while, because when it happens, the situation will open an opportunity for you to grow and renew yourself into the brilliant child of God you are capable of being…one brick at a time,” June added.
June was considering getting skin removal surgery and there’s speculation that she went through with it after people saw the photos of her this summer during her trip to Arkansas. At her peak weight, June was no longer able to leave her home and depended on her girlfriend to assist her with everything.
“I’m living in a nightmare. I feel imprisoned into my body,” she said on the episode. “I have three seats. The bed. The bathroom toilet, and my chair. My world is confined. I feel suffocated.” However, since undergoing major weight loss surgery, June completely turned her life around and is feeling better than ever.
June keeps fans updated via her Facebook page and she sometimes shares selfies of her much-slimmer physique. “I have changed my life for the better for me. I’m way more mobile than I was almost a year ago, I’m not sick like I use to be,” she wrote. “I’m truly enjoying life again.”
