The 600 Pound Mom - Dominique Lanoise

Dominique Lanoise is a proof that sometimes obesity is just too deadly for us. She was living a 600+ pounds life. She was so big, that she couldn’t work, or even get out of bed. In fact, she depended on her six daughters to look after.

Her health was getting worse on a daily basis. The 600lbs mother tried to make drastic changes to lose weight.

She tried diets, but she failed because she would continue to eat more than she was supposed to. And that is why she needed surgery.

Dominique used to be skinny, until she gave birth to her first child at age 16. She later on gave birth to five other daughters.

The 600lbs mom first came to fame in 2010, when she was forced to stay in Haiti for three months after the earthquake. And all because she was too heavy for commercial airlines.

This video explains how she tried to cope with obesity, and how she tried to win the fight against obesity.
