Not only did Christina Phillips lose 500 pounds following her turn on “My 600-lb Life,” but she also worked on herself and being mentally okay. But there were other big changes ahead for the star, who got divorced following her dramatic weight loss.
As it turns out, Phillips’ husband Zach was not supportive of her transformation in the long run. “It became clear that me becoming independent [from Zach] was not going to work for him,” the newly-single star told fans on TLC’s “Where Are They Now?” special (via InTouch). She even went so far as to call her former relationship “abusive.”
The good news is that the star had better days ahead, and just a year after updating viewers about her struggles with mental health and in her marriage, Phillips was back with a new, very positive outlook on her life.
