Nicole’s journey on My 600-lb Life
Nicole was seen having to rely on her mum to help look after her children, but admitted that she hated having to do that.
She travelled to meet Dr. Nowzaradan in Houston, Texas, with hopes for him to change her life and start to lose weight.
Her main goal was to make sure her children would not have to grow up without a mom, and wanted to change her eating habits.
During her appearance on My 600-lb Life, Nicole was evicted from her home, meaning she had to return to her hometown, away from Dr. Now.
He put her on a new diet and exercise plan to follow, with the plan for Nicole to hopefully lose enough weight for surgery.
