The age of 39 you can imagine how hard doing literally anything was for her from childhood issues to her mother passing away as she neared the peak of her weight loss journey to her fiance and father of her daughter leaving her for her own sister I just never dreamed

My life could get this bad charity indeed had a very sad life until her big break today we’ll take a deep dive into the inspirational story of the world-known Survivor of several life-threatening conditions including obesity not living just surviving for the longest time charity always needed help she couldn’t move around her

House without her daughter Charlie who was only 18 years old or her boyfriend Tony who was 21 helping her up from the sofa her bed or even the toilet seat every step was pretty much a struggle and she leaned on them for support making meals for her small family well

That was a tough one for charity simple tasks like cooking became a big challenge she had to rely on Charlie and Tony to handle the kitchen and that is of course when they were having food that even needed the kitchen since most of their diet consisted of junk and fast

Food but here she gives a simple insight into what’s usually on their menu for breakfast lunch and dinner on any regular day or we’d have Chinese or we’d make chips and dip tacos ice cream for lunch we’d have like anything charity also couldn’t drive even even though she

Did have a driver’s license just imagine being unable to go where you want when you want and not even the nearest mall for a simple mother and daughter time these everyday activities that we take for granted were Herculean tasks for her her struggles went well beyond the home

She rarely left the house because she felt ashamed of how she looked it was as though she had built a mental and physical wall around yourself keeping away from the outside world things got so tough that sometimes an ambulance had to pick her up for her doctor’s appointment because she couldn’t fit

Inside of her car or really any car in fact not one or two but a team of at least six strong medical personnel had to lift her onto the mobile ambulance bed from her doorstep like the average firstborn daughter Charlie was her mom’s right-hand man not only to pick what’s

For lunch or rant about everything wrong in the house but to clean her up each and every time that she went number two Charlie ‘s living arrangements were not the usual they were custom made to fit her unique needs as you would imagine her bathing as well was a completely

Different routine she couldn’t take a regular shower under a shower head or in a bathtub so Charlie and Tony used wipes and sponges to clean her this coupled with her toilet problem was the family’s biggest Issue and if you haven’t picked up on this there weren’t clothes her size this meant that she could only wear triple XL tops and giant underwear that disappeared in the folds of her skin to cover her most important parts her condition and Associated risks now in case you don’t know what

Obesity is and how it relates to BMI here’s a quick breakdown it’s the same as that one chart in your classroom wall BMI or body mass index is a simple measure that combined findes a person’s weight and height to assess their General body fat provides an idea of whether someone is underweight normal

Weight overweight or obese and while it doesn’t directly measure body fat it’s a useful tool for screening and identifying potential health risks usually associated with weight you’ll need a bit of math for this but don’t worry it has nothing to do with an equation regardless of the country or

Region it’s calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters this calculation results in a numerical value that falls into specific categories indicating whether a person is underweight normal weight overweight or obese it’s a direct way to assess the relationship between weight and height

Providing a Dependable General indication of safe or worrisome body fatness it goes something like this so the BMI is an index that looks at somebody’s body weight divided by their height in relation to this Charity Pierce who had a body weight of 778 lbs her BMI was undoubtedly in the obese

Range which could pose serious health challenges while BMI doesn’t capture every aspect of health and doesn’t differentiate between muscle and fat in Charity’s case the exceptionally High weight contributed to her challenging situation typically when someone has a high BMI it means that they have more body fat than normal for their height

And this excess fat especially around the belly can lead to health issues a high BMI is linked to an increased risk of heart attack because the extra fat can affect the blood vessels and how the heart Works conditions like high blood pressure high cholesterol and diabetes

Can arise and they in turn put more strain on the heart and blood vessels it’s like making the heart work harder than it should and you can pretty much feel your heart screaming for help the extra fat may cause inflammation in the body which can damage the blood vessels

Over time it’s a bit like the heart and blood vessels facing extra challenges and stress when someone has a high BMI this increased workload and stress on the cardiovascular system can significantly raise the risk of having a heart attack by More than 70% and so maintaining a healthy BMI is

Not only about appearance it’s about keeping the heart and the whole body in good shape now that you’re caught up we’ll get back to ch Char it as in the case of Charity it’s great luck that her obesity did not lead to a severe case of diabetes It’s a Wonderful miracle in

Fact as a routine her physician osteopath Ben Miller had paid her regular visits to check her weight and unlike the usual routine he gave her four months to see if she could lose weight on her own during that time she had lifted hand weights at home and

Tried to reduce her sugary food intake and the Moment of Truth arrived when Ben walked through the door on on one sunny day she needs to be able to prove that she can lose weight on her own are you ready for this charity yes in tears

Weighing 765 lb charity was not ready to give up I don’t want to be like this how it all started Charity Pierce was not always overweight like many others her past had its own story to tell and when she was just a little girl at the age of 10 life dealt her a

Challenging hand growing up in Cedar Rapids Iowa her father was often violent and struggled with alcoholism each time that he got back home from work he would yell at both charity and her mother hit her mother and then pass out on the living room floor waking up the next

Morning as though nothing had happened charity did not have anyone at home to confide in and receive comfort from so that’s when she turned to food her mother mother in turn would seek comfort in cooking unintentionally contributing to her own obsession with eating it was like a lost cause really it started

Something like this her father would abuse her mother and then pass out on the floor while her mother cried herself to sleep in the middle of the night charity would sneak to the fridge and take handfuls of whatever she could find usually junk food like ice cream for

Relief it became so frequent that she began including chocolate bars potato chips and fries and before the end of 1993 it became an everyday practice right after each binge eating episode she felt a wave of shame for having eaten so much but the shame would wear off the next night this would

Continue on for years and charity had grown into a teenager with an excessive weight the year was the late ’90s and of course adolescence was pretty much torture for her she suffered bullying at school and in the neighborhood but she got through at trying to ignore what

People had to say it was a very go Queen time in her life the common teenage rebellion would be her armor but sadly that armor wore off as she entered into her early 20s and adulthood she would be advised to go on a diet but that was almost impossible she was already

Dealing with the American High School Mean Girls raging hormones and seasonal depression and Bing eating was always her go-to so going on a diet was out of the question fast forward to 20 2001 and charity was in an accident that had made her a mobile for quite a while making

Her bedridden and worsening her binge eating with completely no exercise finally help it wasn’t until 2015 that Charity Pierce had finally had enough she wanted to lose weight badly and she wanted to fit into a dress a wedding dress and Charlie had even gone window shopping

For one I like this dress it’s my dream dress it’s really really beautiful it seems like you something you’d wear she was 39 years old and wanted to become married she had plans involving a town Church a wedding bells and her favorite Man Tony I want a big wedding I want to

Be able to fit into a dress if I wanted to get married and my living here might already be married the world-renowned TLC show titled my 600 lb life dedicated to turning the lives of overweight people in the United States around the crew set out to get charity on the show

Finding her was not hard neighbors knew about Charity’s condition and perhaps someone had tipped off the doctor popularly known as doctor now and who knows viewers had first seen charity in her original episode in 2015 where she weighed 778 lbs when Charity Pierce first met with Dr n he was very

Concerned about her well-being instead of sending her home immediately he moved her from Iowa to Houston to be admitted into a hospital under the care care of a popular obesity specialist he had hoped that she would lose enough weight to undergo stomach reduction surgery that she had always wanted this was to ensure

That she was under 24-hour observation around the clock from several nurses and even doctors from around the state Dr n then created a weight loss plan for charity restricting her caloric intake to a range of 1,000 to 1200 per day everything was going according to plan medical professionals were closely monitoring her progress

And she had no access to her favorite sweets and takeout if you all want to eat you have to eat outside of this room so she right now our focus is to AWA a lifechanging situation with she began to feel confident about her growth never shying away from the cameras on set not

Even once after diligently following the plan she successfully lost over 100 lb within 3 months and everyone was happy but the doctor said I’m doing well enough to go home I’m really proud of the weight I’ve lost mhm Dr now confident in her ability to continue the journey at home while

Preparing for gastric bypass surgery allowed charity to return home the whole time she was at the hospital her daughter Charlie was rapidly gaining weight to cope with her mother’s absence from home the day for her surgery arrived and charity was excited her stomach would finally get smaller

Perhaps her urge to eat would reduce as well this surgical procedure often known as a gast bypass involved making her stomach smaller in simple terms it was like resizing the stomach to help her eat less during the surgery doctors created a smaller pouch from the upper

Part of her stomach and this new pouch was then connected directly to the small intestine bypassing a section of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine the goal was to limit the amount of food that charity could eat and also reduce her body’s rapid nutrient absorption aiding in her weight

Loss loss the surgery was a success and charity could go home but was placed on a strict 1,000 calorie diet so she could lose even more weight for her skin reduction surgery she was also ordered to exercise more frequently to speed up the weight loss process and all this

Time Dr now was monitoring her growth with obvious pride in her eyes and it’s enough to move even a grown man to tears visits to a therapist but surely like a broken record Charity’s eating habits persisted at home just the surgery would not be enough to end her

Eating habits at one point her binge eating got so bad that when she visited the hospital to have a weight check to see if she could undergo surgery to remove some of her skin she did not qualify for that surgery she needed to weigh less than 600 lb like the show’s

Title literally States however she had weighed 39.7 lb more than the 600 lb Mark Dr now was not about to let her throw all of her progress out the window and neither was charity he requested that she consider therapy and she agreed yet another major go Queen moment for

Her recommended by Dr n the therapist had a very high success streak she was widely known for helping many through their emotional challenges and eating disorders charity had meetings with a therapist multiple times a week in her home and in these sessions she informed her therapist about how her seemingly

Non-severable bond with food began her therapist guided her through discussions about triggers for over eating other healthy coping mechanisms without resorting to binge eating and strategies for developing a healthier mindset around food they even discussed underlying issues so that she could let go of past trauma for as long as her

Therapy had lasted charity gradually began implementing healthier Habits by the end of the therapy she had developed a more Mindful and balanced approach to eating and everyone could see the difference at home she fought the urge to ask for the usual slices of bread and Fries combo sandwich style and would

Choose more leafy plates instead she and Tony took it a step further by taking cooking classes from a nutritionist and Chef and they learned how to make healthy meals and draft a good health intentional meal plan that was full of soups chicken stews veggie courses fruit salads and plate sectioning with more

Protein greens and less carbs after almost a year with Dr now on the show charity could now fit into a regular vehicle on her way to the hospital to see if she finally qualified for the surgery to remove her excess skin she was confident she would receive good

News while on the scale holding her breath she stepped onto the scale and the screen loaded to reveal a reading of 5972 lb she had lost the pounds that she needed and excited she couldn’t believe her her own eyes Dr now believed that she was ready it’s going to help her to lose
