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

Tara is a 35-year-old single mother of two who lives with her mother and stepfather in Lafayette, Louisiana. She describes herself as the life of the party, always laughing, even when it's to cover up the pain she's really feeling both inside and out.

She started gaining weight when she was 11 years old. She was ridiculed as a kid and continues to be stared and laughed at in public. She has two kids that are her life and her reason for wanting to lose weight and get healthy.

Tara's size limits everything she does. All of her joints hurt, so she basically stays in bed all day. When the kids need to go somewhere, her parents take them while she stays at home. She says she feels like she's a prisoner in her own body. Tara doesn't want to live the rest of her life in her bedroom. If she doesn't start losing weight now, she knows she won't live long enough to see her children graduate high school.
