“My 600-lb Life” star Sean Milliken is dead at 29.
A statement from TLC praised the progress Milliken made during his 2016 appearance on the show and claimed he was working on his weight when he died.
“Over the course of his weight loss journey, he victoriously lost over 400-lbs.,” according to the statement.
Milliken tipped the scales at 900 pounds when he joined the show. During a recap last summer, the network caught up with the California native who “was still continuing in his quest to live a healthier and happier life.”
In March 2016, Milliken told People magazine that his obesity stemmed from a stressful relationship with his father during his formative years.
