From rememberable stars like Christina Phillips, who impressively shrank from 700 pounds to just 183, to infamous ones like Penny Saeger, who was criticized online for being "lazy" for not losing any weight, we checked in to see if the subjects have made any personal and physical progress since their show. Are they feeling happier and embracing a life a smaller portions? Or have they still stuck to their bad habits and need to be cleaned in a kiddie pool?

Christina was 708 pounds when she first appeared on the show in 2014. After getting gastric bypass surgery, she dropped to 183 pounds. However, in her 2016 "Where Are They Now?" special, the 25-year-old admitted to still feeling like she was 700 pounds and often went days without eating if she gained any weight.
"My fear of gaining weight has crippled me," she said in 2016. "But I have to move past that fear if I want to live my life."
She doesn't have any social media accounts of her own, but she sometimes appears in other My 600-lb Life cast members' accounts looking strikingly different from her old self.
