TLC Reality Show Star Nearly Dies During Weight Loss Journey

Henry results

Have U watched TLC's dramatic reality series, My 600-lb Life, yet?

The series follows four morbidly obese individuals weighing over 600 pounds as they struggle to reach an ideal weight after receiving gastric bypass surgery. Unfortunately, one participant's weight loss journey nearly killed him!

47-year-old Henry lost a huge chunk of his initial 750 pounds and underwent a skin removal surgery as result, but his second surgery went horribly wrong. While on the operating table, Henry's heart stopped!

Luckily, doctors were able to resuscitate the poor guy, but not before he nearly crossed over to the other side! Henry recounted his near-death experience by saying:

"I saw a white light. It was just like having an out of body experience. There was the light to take me to Heaven [but] I wasn't ready for it because there's so much here on earth I haven't did yet."

Although there were a few bumps in the road, his 7-year quest toward a healthier weight had a happy ending. The obese man, now 53, lost 475 pounds and is currently preparing to marry the love of his life!

Congrats on all the success, Henry!
