Key Point: Brandi and Kandi are twins who used to weigh over 600lbs, 😱 each lost 500ibs combined after joining a reality TV show My 600lb Life. 🀯

Did you know that twins share a special bond that goes beyond genetics? πŸ™Œ They often have similar personalities, interests and even health conditions. That was the case for Brandi and Kandi Dreier, who weighed over 600lbs each and struggled with food addiction since childhood. 😒

The sisters decided to take control of their lives and joined the TLC reality show My 600lb Life, where they met Dr. Nowzaradan, πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό a renowned weight-loss surgeon. They followed his strict diet πŸ₯— and exercise plan, πŸƒ and underwent βœ‚οΈ gastric bypass surgery. But it was not an easy journey.

Kandi suffered a heart attack πŸ’– and a pulmonary embolism ☹️ during the operation, and had to be put in a coma 😐 for a week. Brandi feared she would lose her sister, but thankfully, Kandi recovered and continued her weight loss journey with her twin by her side. 🎯

Recently, six years after their episode aired, the sisters are unrecognizable and have lost a combined total of 500lbs. 😲 They have also transformed their lives in other ways. Brandi is married 😊 and has two children, πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ while Kandi is in a relationship πŸ’– with a woman named Ruth. They both share their updates on social media, πŸ™Œ where they have many fans who support them and admire them. They are living proof that anything is possible with determination, courage and love. ❀️

As a weight loss coach, πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’Ό I am so proud of Brandi and Kandi for achieving their goals and overcoming their challenges. They are an inspiration to anyone who wants to lose weight and improve their health. πŸ‘ They show that you don’t have to do it alone, but you can find support from your family, friends or even strangers online. They also show that you can enjoy life after losing weight, and pursue your dreams and passions. πŸ™Œ

What do you think of Brandi and Kandi’s amazing transformation? πŸ€” Have you ever watched My 600lb Life? Do you have any weight loss tips or stories to share? Let me know in the comments below! πŸ’¬ πŸ‘‡
