Perhaps one of the most controversial people featured on the show, Penny became infamous for being the only person on the show to not successfully lose weight after surgery. Her doctor, Dr. Nowzaradan, accused her of being “delusional” for refusing to follow her strict diet or curb her portion control. When the show visited her again for the “Where Are They Now” special, Penny admitted that “not much has changed,” but that she lost 35 pounds.
Although there’s a rumor spreading on the Internet that she died, judging by her Facebook, which has a recent update from January 2017, Penny is still living in Maryland and raising her son. Her current weight is still a mystery.
During his 2012 episode, which documented his weight loss journey for four years, Donald was 675 pounds and slimmed down to 295 pounds after surgery. However, halfway into his weight loss journey, he was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre disease, which made him too weak to walk. He eventually gained back 200 pounds, but after breaking his wheelchair, decided to make a new effort to lose weight and keep it off.
Today, Donald is still bound to his chair, but has made progress on his weight loss.
