Who is Vannessa from Too Large?

Vannessa appeared in the first episode of Too Large. She appeared on the show alongside her best friend Meghan, who was seeking to undergo weight loss surgery.

When filming the episode, Vannessa was 41 years old. It is thought that she is still around that age.

Meghan hoped that Vannessa would join her on the weight loss journey, although she seemed sceptical. Vannessa shared her own struggles with her size, mainly the abuse she receives from others. But ultimately, Vannessa’s message is that she’s the same as an average-sized woman: “Just because I’ve got extra skin doesn’t make me any different. My heart still works, my brain still works. And I still have emotions.”

Update on Vannessa from Too Large

Vannessa was inspired by Meghan’s hard work on Too Large, deciding to also pursue bariatric surgery.

She said: “I know it’s going to be hard, I know it’s going to be trying, I know it’s not going to be easy. But I’m ready. I’m ready to do what I need to do to get my life back on track.”

We found Vannessa on Instagram, where she has provided no specific updates on her health journey, but is looking as confident and happy as ever! However, TLC shared both Vannessa and Meghan’s ‘before and after’ photos. You can view them here.
