It's easy to find an excuse for skipping a workout or cheating on your diet but ignore your health too much, and it will seriously deteriorate. However, that doesn't mean you can't get back into shape after a minor or a major slip up. My 600-lb Life is a reality TV series that focuses on morbidly obese people and their weight loss transformations. Some of the changes on the TLC show are so incredible, and you probably won't believe the before & after pictures show the same participants.

My 600-lb Life was meant to be a five-part miniseries involving four morbidly obese patients, but because of its popularity, new episodes were filmed. Each person who appears on the show weighs around 600 pounds (270 kg) at the beginning and tries to reach healthy numbers through controlled weight loss. The determined stars of the program have shredded more than 161, 424 pounds. Extreme weight loss is not only physically, but also mentally hard - changing detrimental habits proves strong will and determination. As corny as it sounds, nothing is impossible. Scroll down to collect your daily dose of motivation in these My 600-Lb Life before and after photos.

STUNNING! And what's great is that she is NOT stick thin, which just goes to prove you do not have to be thin to be beautiful. If I was a guy, I'd be asking her out! That is, IF I could pop my eyes back into their sockets and roll my tongue back into my mouth. She's beautiful! Love her hair and everything!! This is very inspiring to me. :-)
