Paula from "My 600-Lb Life" is one of the morbidly obese individuals featured in Season 2 of the TLC reality docu-series.

Paula is a 39-year-old mother of four children who lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. Weighing just less than 550 pounds, Paula still manages to work the only two jobs she can keep while juggling the schedule of her kids. "No one wants to buy something from me after they see my size," Paula explains. That's why she's forced to work sales from home. She's more comfortable making sales over the phone than working with customers in person.

Paula's weight was not always an issue until she reached her adolescent years. She really gained the pounds after her husband died from obesity-related complications in 2012. Bitterness drove her to eat and at the same time was the only thing that gave her comfort.

Fed up with being forced to work from home and not able to take part in her kids' life, Paula is determined to lose the weight. She is afraid that she will end up like her husband, which would leave three teenagers and an 8-year-old daughter with no one to take care of them.
