What Happened To Bettie Jo Elmore After My 600-Lb Life Season 3
Bettie Jo was a fan favorite from My 600-Lb Life after going on a difficult weight loss journey and she has changed a lot since appearing on the show.
Bettie Jo Elmore appeared on My 600-Lb Life season 3 not only with health issues, but relationship issues as well. She has grown a lot since being on the show. Many fans saw her then-boyfriend Josh Elmore as an enabler, as he said he liked that Bettie Jo had to rely on him to do things for her. She went through a lot of changes after the show, and fans are eager to catch up with her.
Bettie Jo was committed to losing weight on the show, as the 24-year-old started out at 654 lbs. With the help of Dr. Younan “Now” Nowzaradan, she lost over 200 lbs through diet, exercise, and gastric bypass surgery on My 600-Lb Life. Bettie Jo and Josh were able to work through their relationship issues in therapy and are now married. They recently celebrated over a decade of marriage and have also grown their family.
Bettie’s Weight Loss Journey Continues
Bettie Jo is still on her weight loss journey, as she does not seem to have reached her goal weight since appearing on My 600-Lb Life. She said that she wishes some of the excess skin on her body was gone too, maybe hinting that she will get another surgery soon. Bettie Jo was also worried about her high-risk pregnancies, as she now has two kids. Her Instagram is full of pictures of her two sons, with her oldest being Preston Elmore, who was born in August 2016. Her second son Olive Elmore was born prematurely in May 2022, at just 2.5 pounds. Bettie Jo has continued posting updates for her nearly 10K followers, who have watched as her son Ollie continues to grow and thrive.
There is no doubt that Bettie Jo has beaten the odds on My 600-Lb Life, and she is happier than ever to have two healthy sons. She has matured a lot since the show, becoming a mother and dealing with her son being in the hospital for the first few months of his life. Fans are incredibly proud of Bettie Jo for how far she has come since being on the series. The fan-favorite is thriving since moving back to Missouri with her husband and even mentioned that she started a new job, though she has not given details about what it is.
Though Bettie Jo is doing great since appearing on My 600-Lb Life, that is not the case for many other stars of the show. Other fan favorites like Ashley Randall and Henry Foots from season 1 tragically lost their lives before completing their weight loss journey. A lot of times viewers see that the root of these star’s problems is trauma from their childhood that forced them to turn to food for comfort and fans are happy to see Bettie Jo continuing to fight for the life she wants.
