Why My 600-Lb Life's Robin & Garrett's Story Was So Inspiring
My 600-lb Life stars, Robin McKinley and Garrett Rogers were an aunt and nephew who navigated their weight loss journey together, and their story was very inspiring. At the beginning of their My 600-lb Life episode, which aired in 2019, Robin was 40 years old and weighed 648 pounds. Garrett was 20 years old and weighed 607 pounds. Robin sought help from renowned bariatric surgeon Dr. Younan Nowzaradan AKA Dr. Now. Her brother, Chris, who is Garrett's father, was supposed to be Dr. Now's patient as well. However, a heart attack left him too weak to make the trip from their home state of Kansas to Houston, Texas, to see him.
