Chris Parsons shares his story on season 11, episode 7 of TLC’s My 600-lb Life, and hopes to achieve his weight loss goal with the help of Dr.Now, but what happened to Chris P after the show?

In Chris’ My 600-lb Life episode, we’re introduced to his daughter, who he said was the biggest reason he wanted to embark on his weight loss journey.

We take a closer look into where Chris is now after the TLC show.

Who is Chris P?

Chris Parsons is a father who is determined to lose weight and keep healthy for his daughter. His whole family is very supportive of his weight loss journey, calling it a “family affair” as they work out together.

When he was first introduced to us on the show, Chris weighed 620 lbs.

By the end of the episode, he lost a massive 256 lbs, weighing in at 364 lbs, similar to My 600-lb Life’s Marla.

What happened to Chris P after My 600 lb Life?

Chris is still working on his weight loss journey and staying active, as documented on his social media.

Speaking to Distractify, Chris revealed that he stuck to his guns and decided not to get weight loss surgery, as he prefers going down the ‘natural’ route.

“I strongly believe that if you can do it without major surgery, you should. But you also have to be prepared to get it if you cannot do it on your own and you truly gave it a shot,” he told the publication.

However, he also stressed that weight loss surgery “is not a bad thing.”
