Penny from "My 600-Lb Life" is one of the morbidly obese individuals featured in Season 2 of the TLC reality docu-series. She is from Atlanta, Georgia.

Penny is no ordinary wife or mother. At 46 years old, she has spent her last 4 years living in her hospital bed. Growing up with an abusive father, Penny continued to gain weight and found that her body was a defense tool that she could use to protect herself and her two sisters. Her weight continued to climb and as a young-adult, Penny found herself to be over 400 lbs. and admitted to having a food addiction.

After marrying her husband, Edgar, Penny had four miscarriages before giving birth to her first son, Liam. She has not walked for the majority of Liam's life. Shortly after Liam was born, Penny's weight forced her to become bed ridden, making Edgar the primary caregiver for her son.

Penny experiences her son's life through technology. She gets to see him arrive at school for the first day through pictures sent on her iPhone. She cheers him on at karate matches through videos emailed to her and Penny participates in family dinners through Skype as she sits on her hospital bed, eating.

If Penny does not lose the weight, she will never regain the mobility and strength to walk. Ultimately, Penny must make a change or she will never take part in her child's life and have a marriage that will last. This is her last chance to have a family and life worth living.
