A morbidly obese woman who weighs 591lbs has revealed how witnessing her father’s sudden death and the mental decline of her depressed mother led her to spend her childhood eating junk food until she made herself sick.
Tamy Lyn Murrell, 45, was a ‘pretty normal size’ child, but she started turning to food for comfort after her dad’s death.
She was just eight years old when her father came home and died of a heart attack in her kitchen.
In a preview clip for Wednesday night’s episode of the TLC series My 600lb Life, the mother-of-one details how her obsessive eating caused her weight to spiral out of control to the point that her stomach is nearly grazing the floor.
