A pause for celebration. 

Throughout an unique sneak peek at TLC‘s My 600-lb. Life, airing tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 22, James Bedard hits a serious milestone for his restoration. James lives in a fifth flooring walk-up house, and his weight made it tough for him to stroll down the steps to go outdoors.

It has been over a yr since James has left his residence and whereas most of us can relate because of the coronavirus pandemic quarantine, James’ stroll to Central Park holds a particular significance—and a particular worry. 

“Since getting back from my final appointment with Dr. Now, I attempted to get my motivation as much as do higher,” James explains within the clip. “Earlier than I went to see Dr. Now, it had been a year-and-a-half or longer since I would been out of my place. So this helps me assume it is nearly regular once more.” 

But as James and his household get pleasure from Central Park collectively, James admits that the “second normally turns” when he is in public.
