'My 600-Lb Life': Virtuous Food Behavior

On a special episode of TLC's "My 600-lb Life," we caught up with Zsalynn Whitworth, a 43-year-old Texas woman who weighed 597 pounds before undergoing weight loss surgery last year.

Zsalynn was eager to make some drastic changes to her lifestyle once she saw how much her obesity was affecting her daughter, Hannah.

But her husband Gareth, who says he fell in love with Zsalynn because of her weight, wasn't too happy when she decided to go under the knife.

"I'd rather have a salad," said Zsalynn on "My 600-lb Life."

"I'm not buying you a salad," said Gareth. "If you want to eat grass, you can go in the garden and graze."

Now, Zsalynn weighs a whopping 316 pounds less than she did back when her episode was filmed.

And she also shed another big burden weighing heavily on her life - Gareth.

"Gareth hasn't found much good in my changes. It's time for us to admit it's over," said Zsalynn.

After Gareth continued to be completely unsupportive of Zsalynn's dramatic weight loss, she decided to pack up his stuff and kick him out of the house. You go, girl!

Fans of the show on Twitter were so proud of Zsalynn for her progress and for having the courage to kick Gareth to the curb.

But Zsalynn says the best thing that's come out of her journey is her ability to be a better mom to Hannah, and she doesn't want to miss a single day with her daughter.

Check out another part of Zsalynn's road to weight loss.
