Angel Parrish - My 600 lb Life Update - 2018

Angel Parrish is one of the few My 600 lb Life success stories.  She initially weighed 570 pounds and now she's about 230 pounds.  Angel and her boyfriend, Donnie, moved from Kerrville, Texas to Houston so they could be closer to Dr. Nowzaradan.  They have been together for more than 14 years.  Donnie no longer has to help Angel complete simple tasks like using the bathroom.


Angel decided to go to Dr. Younan Nowzaradan because she was missing out on her son, Andrew's life.  Prior to her surgery, Angel relied on Andrew and Donnie to help her with everything.  Donnie would cook for her and bring her multiple meals throughout the day.
