Lesbian Couple to be Featured on Upcoming Episode of "My 600-lb Life"

I don't watch a lot of television these days, but it's fairly well established that I enjoy reality TV. One of the shows that I enjoy watching when I'm at the gym is TLC's "My 600-lb Life," which following morbidly obese people through their journey to weight loss, diets, and surgery.

I was looking at YouTube this afternoon and noticed a preview for the newest season of the program, which begins on Wednesday evening.

This particular clip grabbed my attention because it features a lesbian couples named June and Sadi.

The two-minute clip features June making a complicated food order from some taco chain. Sadi picks up the order, clearly frustrated by the situation. She notes that June was confident when they first began dating and that she enjoyed getting out of the house and doing things. Now June is essentially immobile and has turned Sadi into her caretaker.

June is upset when the food order arrives and complains that not everything is there. She immediately calls the restaurant to complain and presumably to make arrangements for the missing food item to eventually make it back to their home. Sadi observes that June "acts like an addict. Her fix is food."

You can watch the clip here. I'm looking forward to watching this episode of "My 600-lb Life" at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, February 3rd.
