At her heaviest, Tara — a 36-year-old mother who appeared on My 600-lb Life — tipped the scale at 606 pounds.
The show documented her difficulty walking, breathing, and dealing with severe joint pain. With all the excess weight, Tara hardly had any sort of social life, let alone a romantic one. She'd never even been on a date ...

After undergoing major weight loss surgery, Tara lost a whopping 300 pounds! When TLC met back up with her to shoot a one-time update segment, she revealed she would be willing to go on her first date in front of the cameras.
"I have never in my life been on a traditional date," she said. "I don't know if I am ready, but I am going to take a chance."
She decided to go out to dinner with Eugene, a man she'd known for 14 years — and the two totally hit it off!
"I'm starting to feel like I can have a life again and I can be happy. It's scary but it's exciting at the same time."
