Dominic’s story on ‘My 600-lb Life’ is tragic.

“My size has always been an issue for me,” Dominic confessed. He explains how his and James’ mother kicked their father out when Dominic was 9 years old. “Up until my dad left, Dominic and I had a great childhood,” James tells the camera.

Dominic turned to food to cope with his father leaving him, and relied on food even more in the coming years when his mother’s busy work schedule meant Dominic and his brother had to stay with a family member who sexually abused them.

Then, his mother was diagnosed with diabetes when Dominic was 25 and over 500 pounds. “After that, me and my brother took care of her and that lasted almost eight years.” But when their mother passed when Dominic was 34, it devastated the family.

Does Dominic get weight-loss surgery? See the reality star today.

As soon as the brothers reach Dr. Now’s office, he tells them that they will not only “have to change [their] eating habits,” but also that “the priority for [them] both is to get [their] life in order.”

Given the brothers’ living situation, Dr. Now gives Dominic a more modest weight-loss goal than he does for his other patients.

“I’m glad Dominic has made some progress, but he still seems to lack overall motivation to turn his life around,” Dr. Now says about his weight-loss. “You need to work harder on doing the diet and losing more weight,” he tells him, suggesting psychotherapy for him to process the root of his food addiction.

However, over the next four months, Dominic’s weight-loss slows to a halt, and by the end of the episode, he has actually gained 3 pounds, putting his total weight loss at 23 pounds, and his final weight at 650.1 pounds.

Without losing the amount of weight that Dr. Now mandates of his patients leading up to surgery, Dominic is unable to get approved for any procedure. “I think weight-loss surgery is at the bottom of your list,” Dr. Now gleans from Dominic’s priorities. “If you decide to get serious and start losing, let me know,” he cuttingly offers.

“I think that all that I’m doing is really helping me,” he says at the end of the episode, adding that he’s lost “like 20 pounds” since his last appointment with Dr. Now.
