On TLC, there is a show called 600lb Mom: Race Against Time, a show about Dominique Lanoise, a single mom from Miami.
Dominique did two things, she raised her six kids, and ate non-stop.
Sadly, she passed away because she couldn't stop her eating.
She had wanted to do bariatric surgery to shrink the size of her stomach but doctors wouldn't do it unless she lost weight first.
She ended up going on a very strict diet and lost 120 pounds!
Before she could get the surgery, she ended up binging for months, gorging herself on her favorite foods, until she had gained an extra 222 pounds.
Her doctor said:
"Something desperately wrong and catastrophic had indeed happened and it wasn't a one-time slip-up. It was a systematic assassination of her weight loss program."
That's just awful!
We feel so bad for this poor woman, but now that she's gone we feel even worse for her children.
