My 600-lb Life star Paula Jones looks completely unrecognisable after undergoing an impressive weight loss transformation.
Jones weighed 542 pounds (38.5 stone) when she appeared on the reality TV show documenting her weight loss journey.
She struggled with overeating due to a traumatic incident that happened in her childhood which causes her distress.
She’s now worked through these troubles and has since dropped an incredible amount of weight, which she has shared with fans on social media.

Jones chose to turn her life around after her husband tragically died at 33 years old from weight-related complications.
She also suffered a stroke and meningitis due to her weight and was worried that her four children would be left without parents if she didn’t change her ways.
