This one goes by Angie, and we can't wait to see her now, or how her story unfolds. There isn't much information out there about Angela Marie Dunham-Johns, but there are some key things that we know.
There isn't much information out there about Angela Marie Dunham-Johns, but there are some key things about her that we know. According to her episode's log line, Angie tries really hard to get to Houston for Dr. Now's weight-loss surgery. But obviously, there's a twist. Her family, which consists of two daughters and her husband Justin, might get in the way of Angie getting the help she needs.
Angela created a GoFundMe to try to relocate from Ohio to Houston.
Like many of her fellow co-stars on My 600-lb Life, we predict Angie's GoFundMe is a result of financial obstacles, and that she might miss some appointments with Dr. Now, since she lives in Ohio and he is based in Houston, Texas. However, she did manage to lose at least 40 pounds early into her treatment, which gives us hope.
However, she did manage to lose at least 40 pounds early into her treatment, which gives us hope. Angie's last update was two months ago, when she wrote, "I only need about $400 that will help with what I am short of for the traveling and moving expense for me to get to Texas the end of this month! I recently weighed in [and] have lost 40 lbs on my own by following my diet instructed to me by the Dr. and it has gave [sic] me so much more confidence in this process!"
"I am so excited to see what I will be able to do with the surgery as a tool to use with my new eating habits and working out!" she continued. "After I have the bariatric surgery and lose a good amount of weight I will also be getting knee surgery to be able to get myself more mobile and get my life back!"
"I truly can't wait!!!" she added. "I NEED to make this happen to get me to Texas where I KNOW I will get my life back not even get it back I will have a whole new better life!!! I have been overweight since I was a teenager I haven't ever had a chance to live yet!! I can't wait to get that chance!!! Thanks again."
Here's what Angie looks like today.
Though it kind of broke our hearts that Angie only raised $30 of her initial $1200 goal (which she then lowered, but still), we are very glad to see that she seems happy today. For one, she's managed to move to Houston, per her Facebook profile. Yay!
Angie's been sharing some cute photos on her Facebook page, and although most of them are heavily filtered, she definitely looks healthier, and as a consequence, happier than she did when we first met her on the TLC show. "I get a little bit stronger...." she captioned her new profile picture just days ago.
Keep up the good work, Angie! We're overjoyed that you ended up persevering enough to find your way to Texas, even if GoFundMe didn't exactly pull through.
Watch My 600-lb Life Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on TLC.
