When Amber Rachdi first appeared on the TLC show My 600 lb. Life, she weighed 660 pounds.

A then-23-year-old, Amber came on the show after years of battling a severe anxiety and eating disorder. She told the viewers that at just 5 years old, she tipped the scale at 160 pounds and she felt like a "nasty, yucky monster."


Obesity had seriously interfered with her daily life and she needed help performing the most basic tasks like walking. By the time Amber was 16, her tendency to overeat worsened and she became wheelchair bound.

Then in 2015, the Portland, Oregon native decided that enough was enough and she opted for bypass surgery.

Viewers tuned in to watch her lose her first 20 pounds so she could qualify for the weight loss surgery.

Today, over two years since TLC introduced Amber and her story to the world, she has made some significant changes including dropping over 400 pounds.
