Meghan Crumpler On 1000-Lb Best Friends
TLC is back with yet another show which has a similar theme as ‘1000-Lb Sisters’. The show is titled ‘1000-Lb Best Friends’ that explores the weight loss journey of two best friends Meghan Crumpler and Vanessa Cross. Meghan and Vanessa have been together since senior high throughout years of poverty and bullying.
No matter how tough it was, they stood up for each other and now they are looking to go through the weight loss journey together.
Vannessa told in the trailer of the show, “This girl has been with my ride or die through it and if anyone says anything to me, she’s got my back”. Meghan added while laughing, “I used to threaten them with other things but now I just say I’m going to sit on your a–, leave her alone”.
Years later, they are still best friends and Vannessa keeps Meghan in high regard. In the show, we’ll see that Meghan who had made up her mind to lose weight is convincing her friend to lose the weight. Meghan, who weighed 496 lbs, needed an oxygen tank to breathe and wants to be free of it.
But, Vannessa, who is 56 lbs lesser (i.e. 440 lbs), was hard to convince to go through the weight loss journey.
Meghan revealed that she was inspired to go on “Too Large” after her father David, dying in hospice, had watched comparable shows and told her she can lose weight, too. The bariatric surgeon who would be guiding them through the process is Atlant Dr. Charles Procter who is already a public figure to TLC.
Meghan complemented her doctor, “He is not just a talented surgeon but he’s compassionate and has the greatest bedside manner. He makes me feel like a human being and is not judgmental.” She met Dr. Procter because she was tired of not being able to move around or be productive.
Meghan had also mentioned that besides Vannessa other two best friends also featured on the show Tina Arnold and Ash Thebff. She revealed on her Facebook that she had a few best friends but Tina Arnold is the truest best friend who she has known from the age of 15.
Catch up to the TLC’s new show to see what unfolds.
Meghan Crumpler’s Weight Loss Journey
Meghan Crumpler’s weight loss journey starts at 496 pounds which she discovers at Dr. Procter’s office. Then, Dr. Procter gives her a weight goal of 20 pounds to lose and her journey begins. She reveals how hard her journey was but she was making progress. Although at first losing 20 pounds seemed impossible but the number reads 459 pounds which is 37 pounds less and 17 pounds more than the set target in just a matter of a month.
Then, she tries to get her friend Vannessa on the journey to lose weight.
“This was a do-or-die moment for me,” Meghan said. “I was tired of sitting on the sidelines I was alive but not living. I had to do something I’d contemplated for years. And doing it this way, hopefully, I can help others who relate to me.”
Now that she is making progress in losing her weight, Meghan can check the list of things she wanted to do such as fly in an airplane, go swimming, go on a cruise, take a vacation, kayak, take dance lessons, even cross her legs.
