TLC has released a new preview for the 12th season of the series My 600-Lb. Life.

The forthcoming season of the reality series, according to the network, follows a set of seven ‘morbidly obese patients’ as they ‘strive to lose weight through diet and gastric bypass surgery.’

The patients embark on their weight loss journeys ‘with the help of’ Dr. Younan Nowzaradan, a bariatric surgeon based out of Houston who counsels them about the changes they need to make to prepare for the surgical procedure.

The episodes of the series focus on each patient as they speak about their food intake, how it impacts their life and how they’re looking for a change.

According to a logline from TLC, ‘This season explores the emotional and physical battles of all-new patients including a paralyzed man desperate to find a way to stand, a bride-to-be fighting to finally walk down the aisle and a recovering drug addict whose life is now dominated by a new addiction: compulsive eating.’
