Here's What
Brandi And
Kandi From
My 600-Lb Life Look Like Now
Twins Brandi and Kandi Dreier had one of the most heart-wrenching stories on TLC's "My 600-lb Life." After suffering childhood trauma and gaining a combined weight of over a thousand pounds by age 29, they met with famed weight-loss surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan in order to get on the right track.
Both sisters successfully lost 40 pounds in their first month of treatment and eventually underwent gastric bypass surgery. Kandi’s heart stopped during her operation and she had to be placed in a medically-induced coma. thankfully, she recovered and continued to push forward with diet, exercise, and therapy with her sister.
When they reappeared on "My 600-lb Life: Where Are They Now?" in 2018, the Dreier sisters had become dramatically slimmer, healthier, and happier. As of 2020, Kandi is a happily-married mother of two, while Brandi has found a great circle of friends and recently announced she’s in a relationship with a woman named Ruth.
